Nominated for Best New Artist for 2011 by Deli Magazine, Clementine and the Galaxy is a collaboration between acclaimed vocalist Julie Hardy and producer/guitarist Mike MacAllister. With their unique brand of electro pop, you’ll be able to hear influences by artists such as Miike Snow, Chairlift, Florence & the Machine and James Blake.
Lead vocalist Julie Hardy is well on her way to becoming one of most in-demand studio recording artists & performers in New York City. In May 2011, she made her national television debut on Saturday Night Live where she performed live with rising star Ellie Goulding and this past August she sang on David Letterman with indie rock star St. Vincent. She has received rave reviews from the New York Times, Time Out New York, Downbeat and Jazz Times.
Producer Mike MacAllister, when not generating C&G’s phat beats, works as a composer for films and TV commercials. His tracks have been featured in ads for XBox, Nike, Levis, and many others. His recent film scores for “Freakonomics: The Movie” and “The Spirt of Laxmi” were premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Mike also plays guitar for other NYC up and comers Wishes and Thieves, Young Unknowns, and the Awakening Orchestra.?
“Vocalist Julie Hardy, who has worked with stars-in-the-making such as Ellie Goulding and St. Vincent, hits 92YTribeca with her own band, Clementine and the Galaxy, which does spacey, playfully proggy art pop in the Bowie lineage.” – Time Out NY
“Hardy is truly unleashing her powerful voice while soothing with a Florence Welch-like enchantment.” – The Deli Magazine
