Ron Gallo "White Christmas"

Ron Gallo, has shared his cover of the classic Bing Crosby tune “White Christmas” via New West Records. Perfect for the holiday season, Gallo’s sincere crooner-cover emits nostalgia and warmth.

From Ron Gallo:

A few years ago around Christmas I sat on the floor solo in front of a TV fireplace and listened to the Dean Martin Christmas Album 12 full times on repeat then recorded this cover. I love the old crooner stuff. It’s like a blanket. With how 2020 has been, I’ve leaned heavy into nostalgia as a mental survival tactic so figured I’d give this track a proper release and used a photo of me as a kid on Christmas as the cover art as another way to return to what seemed like “simpler times”.

Gallo, will release his new album Peacemeal on March 5th Via New West Records. “Making this new stuff felt like color-blocking, like if it was a shirt it would have a yellow left sleeve, orange right sleeve, green mid-section, pink pockets and a white collar, no metaphor. Might not make sense, but that’s a shirt I want to wear right now.”

Gallo wrote and started recording these songs during a three month period of self-isolation last summer when immigration forced him back to America from Italy where he planned to stay with his now-wife, and collaborator, Chiara. After a trip around the world, mostly spent living and recording in Italy, 9 months later he finished these recordings in the same room they started during pandemic self-isolation working remotely with Ben H. Allen (Gnarls Barkley, Animal Collective) who provided additional production and mixing. “Now and then feel oddly similar. I want to be one of the people at least trying to make people happy as the world goes through some major growing pains”.
