  1. Review by Tiny Triumph Recordings

    Stephen is an absolute genius. Whenever I have a track that I need help with from an arrangement point of view; Stephen is always the man to go to! His knowledge of composition and arrangement is second to none! Plus, he is without a doubt the friendliest guy in the industry!

    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.

    Stephen's score truly brought our film to life. He knows how to write music that is felt in bone and fibre. He's the real deal - an artist and a bloody nice guy.

    Stephen's ever calming manner is always a pleasure to be around during post production. His work is never selfish, Stephen ensures his music propels the dramatic drive of any given moment. As a composer and storyteller Stephen is truly talented.

    Stephen's ability to nail the tone I was after for the score of my film, right from the first pass, was remarkable. He has a deft understanding of story telling, a fact that is evident in both the finished product and his creative process. Stephen is a true professional who always has a smile on his face - working with him is a joy.

    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.
