Galen Cassidy Peria, also known as Duke Aeroplane, is a New Orleans based song-finder, wordsmith, student of the cards, histrionic, and excitable drinker. As a member of Vermont Joy Parade he recorded and released two critically acclaimed albums and toured the United States and Europe extensively between 2008 and 2014. As a solo artist, he has recorded and released one double-length album as difficult to locate as it is to evaluate. His latest work, "Duke Aeroplane & The Wrong Numbers: Higher Ground" is available on United Bakery Records. He is currently in pre-production on the first UBR Films release, “The Heartbeat, The Hammer”, due in 2019.
