After the tragic death of his father in 1965, killed by a drunk driver when he was 9 years old, he and his siblings were raised by his equally well-loved mother Rachel. God, family, love and music became his primary outlets to his inner pains and void left from the loss of his father.
Following in his father’s footsteps, Galloway excelled in both the Motion Picture and Music Industries beyond his own dreams and expectations.
Galloway is the author to three published poetry books (Mindgarden Volumes I, II and III), still writes, records and produces Rock N’ Roll and Country music. He’s also currently writing his first screenplay in hopes of “giving back” and “giving hope to others.”
Paul feels he was born with a guitar in his hands and music in his bone marrow. For his love of writing, performing and recording music is unsurpassable. He has been playing guitar since the age of 7 and now writes, records, produces and performs on guitar, piano, bass guitar, and many other instruments. He also sings his own songs.
He has performed on the same billing and/or with such bands as The Ramones, Dead Kennedy’s, Fear, Service, The Keys, and many others.
His “contracted” recordings were at Sound City, Shangri-La Studios and Mama Jo’s (Ambrosia’s studio), with Service and The Keys. Meeting such successful artists as Bob Dylan, Keith Richards, Ronny Wood, Robbie Robertson, John Entwhistle, Tom Petty, Bonnie Raitte, Pat Benetar, Ringo Starr, Alice Cooper, Chuck Negron, and many other greats.
He has performed at many of the top clubs in LA such as Whisky-A-Go Go, Gazzaries, Troubadour, The Starwood, The Roxy, Country Club, Blackies, and continues to perform at many other clubs and major events.
Recently, he performed for the Marines at Camp Pendleton, and at annual Cancer Society Event, which was a great honor and privilege. He believes that being able to “give back” to others is the most rewarding.
His vast life experiences provide him with inspiration and ability to illustrate, through his poetry and songs, the many wonders, ups and downs, good and bad, disappointments and hope, that life has to offer.
Motion Picture Industry
From his early teens he worked in studios such as Paramount, Warner Bros., MGM, Universal, Samuel Goldwyn Studios, CBS Studio Center, Glen Glenn Sound Co. and many others. It was while working as a sound engineer/recordist in these studios, that he became sucked into the abyss of Hollywood, the private and dark side of Hollywood, where drug use was rampant. He became the scapegoat for some of the greatest figures of Hollywood.
During the turbulent and dark years that followed his passion for love and life, hopes and dreams never died and are the nucleus for much of his poetry and music. He is the esteemed author of three poetry books (Mindgarden Volumes I, II, and III) and is working on seven more volumes to follow. Currently, he is writing two books and their respective screenplays.
Today he is spending most of his time writing and composing and raising his youngest son Patrick.
Recently, he has worked on many shows, including NCIS, Law and Order Los Angeles, America’s Top Model, Brothers and Sisters, West Wing, Crossing Jordan, Nip/Tuck, The Unit, Evan Almighty and many others.
