Artist or Band Name: 
Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate
Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate are Malcolm Galloway (vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer) and Mark Gatland (bass, backing vocals, keyboards and co-producer), on their own, or with Kathryn Thomas (flute). Kathryn is the flautist of the award winning BBC New Generation Artists The Galliard Ensemble (wind quintet). Their music is eclectic, combining progressive/alt-rock, classical, experimental, electronic, and metal influences. They were recently highlighted as Prog Magazine Limelight feature artists. They are based in London, UK.
 
They stepped in at the last minute to replace an injured band on the main stage at Hard Rock Hell’s Prog Festival November 2017, one of the world’s leading indoor progressive rock events. Performing to over 1000 people, opening for Magnum, Focus and Carl Palmer, they were described by Hard Rock Hell magazine as ‘unlikely stars who stole the show’, and by eFestivals as the ‘highlight of the festival’. 
 
Their music has been recommended by Steve Hackett ("I particularly enjoyed this album and I thoroughly recommend it”) and won many awards including:-
 
• Prog Magazine Readers’ Poll Top 10 Unsigned Bands
• Beasties Rock Show's album of the year award (shared with Alice Cooper and Roger Waters)
• Bandwagon Network Radio Song Of The Year
• Banks Radio Australia's best album and best producer category shortlist
• Radio Wigwam Single Of The Year shortlist
• Metal Mayhem Radio band of the month 
• American Veterans Radio artist of the week
• NewEARS Album Of The Month award
 
Malcolm Galloway is also a contemporary classical/minimalist composer, whose 2019 release ‘Transitions’ was included in Sid Smith’s selection of the year’s best releases for Prog Magazine. 
 
“Vocals that drip with passion and longing, ethereal flute and the achingly bluesy low-down guitar. Unashamedly progressive in its outlook…  gets under your skin with its elegant music and heartfelt vocals… an engrossing musical experience. ‘Broken But Still Standing’ is a brilliantly perceptive and original work of art that enthralls with every listen. Taken as a whole it is an utterly immersive musical experience that will captivate and enlighten the listener, Hats Off Gentlemen Its Adequate has to be one of the most creative and innovative artists out there today.” Prog Radar
