Galleon Theme Song

Galleon is an Atlanta-based musical group which believes life is too short for ordinary music. Comprised of Elliott Michaels, William Easterling, Larry Cameron, Steve Carmichael, and June Meltzer, this electric outfit plays tasteful, well-crafted original rock songs highlighted by strong melodies, intelligent lyrics and powerful emotional content, and performed with professionalism and style. Thus, the band makes music that sails above all the rest!

Galleon’s music is a fusion of the best elements of jazz, country, blues, gospel, folk, and African and Latin musical styles – the very same elements which were fused together to forge rock music in the first place. So it’s still rock & roll to Galleon!

Galleon founder and skipper ELLIOTT MICHAELS (electric/acoustic guitar, lead vocals, keyboards, songwriting) is a seasoned veteran of the music scenes in New York, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. He first formed Galleon in 1994 and has been busily improving it ever since. Michaels’ impeccable vocal styling and right-on-the-mark songwriting are the foundation on which was built the Galleon!

Galleon now also features WILLIAM EASTERLING (polyphonic synthesizer, organ, electric piano, harmony vocals), a classically-trained musician with an eclectic pop sensibility; LARRY CAMERON (kit drums, percussion, occasional guitar), an alumnus of a variety of Georgia cover bands; STEVE CARMICHAEL (electric guitar, bass, harmony vocals), an accomplished player well-versed in both rock and country styles; and JUNE MELTZER (weapons of hand percussion, background vocals, lyrics, administative support), a long-time new music devotee with lots of get-up-and-go. The spirit, enthusiasm, and professionalism of these musicians helps ensure smooth sailing for Galleon!

The chemistry and camaraderie among musical partners Meltzer, Carmichael, Cameron, Easterling, and Michaels is most evident in Galleon’s cohesive and assertive sound, imposing stage presence, and commanding performance. The group appears often at Atlanta-area clubs and concert events, and they now look forward to playing their special brand of music throughout the Southeastern United States.
