Gallop Galaxy

Artist: Christopher Gallop

Hi, how are you today?

Peace. I am very thankful and optimistic. I am thankful for the all the things that I have overcome and all the things I have achieved. I am thankful for the good and bad, which has taught me to seek balance in all that I do and pursue.

Where are you from?

I was born in Jamaica Queens, New York. But I was raised in Richmond, Virginia.

When did you start making music - and what or who were your early influences?

I started making music at 15 with a group of friends. We would call ourselves Clap Clap Mafia. My life was always my influencer of my music. Having the ability to convey my emotions through spoken word over a beat. I remember my first musical influences were DMX, Biggie, PAC, Wu Tang, OutKast, Dirty Boyz, Twista, MF Doom, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Three Six Mafia, and Eminem. Others like D’Angelo, Al Green, Dru Hill, Prince, Black Sabbath, Korn, and Nirvana.

What skills do you think artists need to be successful?

Much has change within the industry. Social media has catapulted entertainers and artists careers to the forefront of the music industry. So, I would say social media presence, a team who is committed to a plan, and an understanding of the business side of music.

How do you stay up to date with the latest music trends?

I am, and will forever be a student of my craft. I am constantly looking and listening to what is trending but also what is being marketed. I also follow many well-known social media promoters and educators. One is Javoe Rokour. I am I enrolled in his online Rokourding academy, that is committed to the education/progression of musicians and artist.

When performing, what techniques do you use to engage the audience?

Call and response method, I absolutely love. To me it gives the crowd an opportunity to engage more. Making it feel more personal. Also, I enjoy jumping in the crowd and being able to surround myself with the crowd’s energy it is a very intimate and elevating experience.

What would you say is the most rewarding part of being an artist?

Seeing the people who are impacted by the art you have created. Getting the honest feedback of the music or art helping another person in time of need. Being their go to jam for motivation. Maybe even a tune that makes a person feel relatable. That is worth more than any amount of money to me.

How did you spend your lockdown/pandemic time? What did you accomplish before the entertainment world began to open again?

During the pandemic I focused on creating a network of people that could help me educate and inform me on my music journey. From artist, videographers, promoters, and producers. This is essential in forming a team of people to help execute the plan or vision. I recorded multiple albums and shot some of the best videos of my career. All these things and more would lead me to meet and work with many influential artists in the music industry.

What makes you different from other artists?

I would say my understanding. Not a know it all by any means. What I mean is my understanding of who I am and what I mean to society, acknowledging my purpose and committing to fulfill my dynasty. Understanding the influence and power I have with my art and music. Knowing I could heal or hurt with just my words alone understanding that my mind is shaping and enhancing my reality. Also wanting to bring that understanding to the common man. Whatever you can believe you can achieve with applied works. Anything is possible and Dreamz Never Fade.

Last question, when not making music, where can we find you?

When not making music, I am still working. I help with disaster relief and recovery from natural disasters. When I am not storm chasing you can find me at home. Enjoying my family and spending quality time with the people I love the most. This is my favorite time because they are the very reason why I still believe in my dreams and the reason why I fight for those dreams. They are the inspiration that gives me the will to continue my journey to manifest my vision.
