Hits the stage at Grizfest August 1, 2009
It?s been almost twenty years since Glass Tiger first topped the charts, and they are still masters of creating the great song. They are known for strong beautifully crafted melodies and lyrics delivered with power-packed vocals and driving rhythms.
Discovered in the summer of 1984, their dynamic original sound captured the moment, and the race to sign them was on. Glass Tiger was immediately introduced to the recording studio to work on their first album. The Thin Red Line set a record for being the fastest selling debut recording in Canadian history, going gold within weeks of its release. To date this album has received four Platinum records in Canada. With the release of their 20th Anniversary DVD ?No Turning Back Glass Tiger 1985 ? 2005? the band shows not only why they are indelibly etched into the annals of Canadian music history but also how their writing style still remains vibrant and meaningful for today?s music scene. The album is a brand new collection of Glass Tiger?s biggest hits and includes two brand new songs No Turning Back and Give it Away.
With such a colorful past ? world tours, hit singles, millions sold, top producers, and sharing stages with some of the biggest acts of all time, one would think that this history could lead to complancency, stagnancy, or perhaps even cynicism in their approach today. Yet, those adjectives couldn?t be further from the truth. With Alan Frew on vocals, Sam Reid on keyboard, Al Connelly guitar, Wayne Parker electric bass and Chris McNeil on drums, they still have what it takes to be a great band.
