Nashville, Tennessee (PRWEB) April 12, 2013
Ben Gallaher, Nashville country music artist and Pennsylvania native, will launch his summer tour, No Strings Attached, with a six-week run of dates starting May 3 in Warrendale, Pennsylvania and stretching across the East Coast with a tour finale June 6 – 9, in Nashville, Tennessee, at the CMA Music Festival.
Sponsored by Snagajob, the nation’s largest hourly employment marketplace for job seekers and employers and headquartered in Richmond, Virginia, No Strings Attached is Gallaher’s first official tour and will feature his full band playing music from his self-titled album, as well as new releases. In addition to Gallaher as lead guitarist and vocals, the band members include the following musicians:
Eric LaFontsee – Rhythm/Lead Guitar – Lakeville, MN
Zach Crouch – Bass Guitar – St. Louis, MO
Jake Davenport – Drums – Austin, TX
“Ben was the winner of our national music competition, The Hourly Gig, which honored artists who hold hourly jobs while they work to break into the music business,” said Courtney Moyer, corporate marketing manager for Snagajob. “Ben is a very talented musician and a fantastic performer! On the No Strings Attached tour, we have the opportunity to support a great artist – and hourly worker – while spreading the message that hourly jobs can be a launching pad for great achievements.”
No Strings Attached comes on the heels of a successful holiday feature in which Gallaher performed at four of Pennsylvania’s largest correctional institutions; concerts that were inspired by Johnny Cash’s prison tour.
“The energy that fills me on stage with my band is something I just can’t explain. I sing and write about the common man, because those are the people I grew up with. In every song there’s a story about life, and what we hope to become and the highs and lows on our journey,” says the 21-year-old country artist.
