Current Single; Old Songs: Exploring some Blues with vintage tones and some grit and fuzz of more modern sounds. It’s a song that longs for old vibes, written during a time of grief for some older friends of ours who were big influences in our lives, and passed on, leaving a void. It’s a got a real live feel for us and we hope that comes across.
Single, Northern Soul; A song about strong characters we've met from the North of England. Some relentlessly optimistic people who inspire us in the hardest of times. There's more than a nod here musically to those hard working early Soul musicians, mainly from Detroit, who created the uptempo, less commercial, classic Soul records that were first appreciated in the North of England and became known as the Northern Soul genre.
Title track: EchoThe Hollow
Formed in Cheshire in the autumn of 2016, The Gus Glynn Band are an eclectic Alt Rock three-piece brewing heady concoctions of Rock, Blues, Post-Punk and Soul. Their genre surfing sets draw serious music lovers and casual listeners alike with songs of irony and honesty that only the drive and integrity of a watertight trio can deliver in true Rock n' Roots n' Dirty Blues style. Live shows, sorely missed in these crazy times, are packed with the feats and joys of intuitive musical cohorts that obviously love playing together, while recordings prove its possible to capture those hard hitting emotive vibes in the studio. Driving rootsy rhythms, soaring melodies, gutsy lyrics, rock out riffs and wailing blues define The Gus Glynn Band as a force to be reckoned with, drawing an ever increasing audience with real musical magnetism. Debut album Daylight was released September 2018 with the follow-up Echo The Hollow due for release late 2020 or as soon as we can get back on stage. The band have really honed their sound with this one and developed their flair for dynamic range into hard hitting Rock and Post Punk gems with interludes of raw, yet finely crafted, Blues and Soul.
They’re a really good band, really funny, really cool, a touch tongue in cheek and I love the fact that this is real rhythm and blues. These guys are using that traditional sound, where rock and roll came from, they just sound like they’re having fun. The vocal has a very unique style, with a real choral feeling that makes you want to sing with it - Craig Hopkinson, New Music Reviews, on ‘Oh Hey’ from debut album Daylight.
Gus Glynn is an excellent guitarist/singer who works out beautiful arrangements to support an equally effective vocal. Never overbearing and always aware of space on the canvas: Vital for the higher levels - M. G. Stephenson x
