As a member of the Seacoast Guitar Society Jim was a featured artist in their first fingerstyle compilation CD. In a review of his CD “River Watch”, “Good Times” music magazine’s Ron Hart writes…”Gallant ranks among some of the finest tunesmiths in the Northeast”. Ron Silverstein of “20th Century Guitar Magazine”, writes “A gifted acoustic guitarist, Jim Gallant’s fretboard is both rhythmic and tuneful”. 
He recently finished up his latest CD "Old Hat with a New Coat", a collection of down home Americana songs. Cyrus Rhodes of The Muse's Music says of his latest CD " From start to finish Old Hat with a New Coat by Jim Gallant is one impressive catalog of music. The music is consistent, uplifting, & extremely entertaining. Note for note, song for song there isn’t really a weak piece on this entire catalog. The lyrics are catchy, & the melodies are well crafted & hooky. Last but not least the songwriting & vocal presence from front Jim Gallant is world-class".
