GALA

An outsider from the get go, Gala left Italy as a teenager and landed in Manhattan. A stranger in a strange land, a rocker in a club land Gala was seduced by booming sound systems, crazy parties and the underground gay scene. While studying at New York University Tisch School of the Arts, Gala wandered the NYC underground photographing artists and eccentric club-goers. Ultimately, her camera was the key to her success. In exchange for a photo of a European deejay she recorded her first demo. In no time, with no formal training, no industry connections, but huge amounts of attitude and determination, Gala became a dance floor icon.

Referred to by her fans as a "cult artist" for her minimalist look and haunting voice, Gala suddenly disappeared at the top of her success leaving behind an air of mystery; After her manager Steve Fargnoli (Prince's manager for over 10 years) unexpected death in 2001, Gala ended up locked into a deal with a record company that left her no control over her music. Longing to break free from her constraints and return to the freedom that had fueled her initial rocket to success; Gala left her European record company and moved back to NYC, this time settling in Brooklyn.

She immediately formed her own label, Matriarchy Records, and set out to redefine her sound, her life and her career. In 2005 she signed the independently produced song "Faraway" to EMI in France and subsequently in Greece, where it reached #1 on iTunes and #6 in CD sales. The song has been covered by the Greek singer Tamta (winner of the Greek "Idol" TV show) and has been featured on a TV ad campaign in the US.

In 2008 Gala teamed up with producer Marcus Bell and put together the 'Tough Love' album spanning the best of five years of collaborations with a wide range of musicians from Cash Money platinum-selling Lil Wayne helmsman, Revin Rudolf, avant-garde drummer Deantoni Parks (John Cale, Meshell Ndegeocello, Mars Volta), guitarist Joseph Friedman (Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Beyoncé) and Tamir Muskat (ex-Gogol Bordello, Balkan Beat Box).
Starting to book herself independently through her own label she set out to perform around the world, from the Antique Theater in Arles to the Highline Ballroom in New York City, from the Palais du Sport in Paris to the Ethias Arena in Belgium where 40,000 people demanded more. In 2010 she was invited as the only artist to perform her album Tough Love at " 24 Heures Vélo" the biggest student party in Belgium at Louvain La Neuve. In 2011 Gala headlined at Forest National in Brussels the 15.000 people event organized by Radio Energia in San Paolo (Brazil) and a tour of the Zenith Theatres in France.

Invited to perform at "Dance in the Summer" in Beirut in 2011 - next to artists such as: Taio Cruz, T- pain, Dev, and Top 40 best Djs Dash Berlin, Gala presented a new single "Lose yourself In Me". In just a few weeks Gala's new single reached N#2 on MIX FM (Official N#1 Radio in the Middle East)

The song has been played, among other stations, on Fun radio and FG Radio in France; it has been played on several radio stations in Belgium.

The "Lose Yourself in Me" music video, directed by Alistair Legrand and produced by The Masses (previous work with Heath Ledger Beach House, Dido, Bon Iver, amongst many others) premiered on the front page of France's #1 online video portal, Daily Motion.

"Taste of Me" was the second single of her conceptual singles trilogy. The video was choreographed by Benoit Swan, Artistic Director of New York's Avant-garde dance company Cedar Lake, and directed by New York-based French director Alexandre Moors (Kayne West's Runaway, Blue Caprice).
Both "Lose Yourself In Me" and "Taste of Me" were featured in two of the most well known American reality TV shows: "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and the "Real World" (2014).
In February 2014 Gala played a healdining show in Medlas Plaza during the Winter Olympics in Sochi. With her set broadcast live on Europa Plus TV, the largest musical channel in Russia, Gala's set also debute
