Reviews of Stephen Gallagher

    Stephen is such an utter joy to work with. As an editor, being able to work with an understanding and most of all patient composer is truly a gift. We have worked together on two different projects and his talent has only been surpassed by his kind and genuine nature. I'm lucky to have worked with him and hope to work with him again in the future.

    If there's an easier composer to work with than Stephen, then I haven't met them yet! Always enthusiastic and keen, Stephen consistently delivers music that exceeds our expectations. I've always appreciated that he's happy to work on our small scale projects, when he could be making music for Hollywood blockbusters instead!

    An absolute joy to work with, Stephen Gallagher is serious talent and professionalism personified. I've had the pleasure of having Stephen do music composition and edit work on my animated feature, BILAL. Stephen understands filmmaking and always provides effective and innovative solutions, be it for songs or the film score itself.

    Everything you need to know about Stephen is in his music - he is a masterful composer with a huge range. He has an innate understanding of scoring for film and goes straight to the heart of the story. I cannot think of anyone who is as well liked in the industry. He has legions of fans and I am most certainly one of them!

    Stevie G is a gentleman and a great talent. Equally at home scoring Hollywood hot stuff like The Hobbit and indie oddities like Vajazzle, this music man is a valuable and highly adaptable addition to any production. Loved working with him!

    Excellent results that lifted our production to the next level. Beautiful arrangement and writing. Stephen is one of the nicest guys in the industry; his ability to work with clients and deliver exactly what they're after is precisely why he has worked with some of the biggest names in music/film. We were lucky to have him on our team.

    A powerhouse talent, who is incredibly humble and easy going - Stephen is simply a joy to work with. Equally at home writing for electronics or orchestral instruments - he quickly grasps the storytelling style of his clients and delivers scores that elevate the production.
