Introducing Clementine & The Galaxy to the A&R Report. Clementine & The Galaxy’s whirling blend of soaring vocals and synth-driven art-pop has earned them a reputation as one of indie music’s fastest rising acts. The NYC-based duo of vocalist Julie Hardy and guitarist/producer Mike MacAllister has already captured the attention of critics such as Time Out New York, MTV Iggy, The Huffington Post, AOL Spinner, Brightest Young Things and The Deli Magazine (which ranked the band one of their top Emerging Artists for 2012 and 2013). With the band’s self-titled debut EP (featuring their single “Robot”) just released Clementine & The Galaxy is poised to become one of the year’s breakthrough artists.
Front-woman Julie Hardy is a professional singer who has performed live with Ellie Goulding on Saturday Night Live, St. Vincent on David Letterman, and in countless television commercials and films. She is also the voice of the College Humor’s viral sensation “Look At This Instagram”. A jazz vocalist by training, Hardy is a successful solo artist who has received rave reviews from the New York Times, Time Out New York, Downbeat and Jazz Times. In addition to her work as a performer, Hardy also teaches Vocal Jazz at New York City’s prestigious New School University.
Clementine & The Galaxy owes its crisp and ethereal sound to producer/composer Mike MacAllister. His music has been featured in multiple ad campaigns including those for XBox, Nike, and Levis, and has scored multiple films including “Freakonomics: The Movie” and “The Spirt of Laxmi,” which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.
