Mad Gallica is a multi-instrumentalist, one-woman-band created by Wilmington-born native, Dylan Louise. Her style has best been described as “a blend of theatrical, rock popera, classical, and a whole lot of 'wow' thrown in.” - Karmic Fury Records.


Dylan Louise grew up touring the southeast with her family, performing old-time Appalachian music and songs her parents had written, often singing harmony and playing a range of instruments. Music resonated strongly at an early age and continued through intense study of classical piano and voice. 


Dylan double-majored in piano performance and film at UNCW and later moved to Los Angeles for a Vocal Performance degree at Musicians Institute, receiving the 2017 Vocal Performer of the Year award. Somewhere in-between this time-line, Dylan began having intense visions and dreams about the place she believes her soul to have originated from - a rose Nebula, which she refers to as the Gallica Rose. Music and choir vocals were always blaring loudly in these visions, which inspired her to write fully orchestrated material (plans are being made to release this material in the coming years with an interactive film component). She states: “The name Mad Gallica originates from several places. One being - it is the name of a rose here on Earth and one I refer to as the Mother of Roses. It was used in ancient rituals and love potions. I was looking for a name that could describe the intergalactic place I was seeing every night in my dreams as well as how it made me feel - a bit Mad, to be honest. We have been conditioned from an early age to not believe the magic in the world and within ourselves. I want people to embrace their Madness, their inner power and wisdom, and explore the beyond within. We all have access to this sacred, in/eternal magical Madness.”


Mad Gallica has toured the world as back-up singer and keyboardist opening for bands ranging from Metallica and Ozzy to Guns N’ Roses and System Of A Down.


She recently released a new original song “Souls on Fire,” which received rave reviews by fans and critics. Daily Music Roll cites: “The magnetic allure of classical music has been brought back to life once again through the epic soundscape of singer-pianist-composer Mad Gallica [sic]. The brilliant multi-instrumentalist has recently released another masterpiece, ‘Souls on Fire’. [sic] The incredible appeal in her voice is enough to captivate the mind and the souls of the audience. The newly released single, ‘Souls on Fire’ showcases her power-packed vocals breathing life into the thought-provoking and heart-warming lyrical narration.” 


Mad Gallica directed a limited release VIDEO that can only be seen exclusively here on her website. Combining the storylines of five classic horror films, she weaves a tale of a never-ending reincarnation cycle between two tortured souls in love.
