meet GLEN

backing vocals/ sax/ keys/ guitar


From an early age, music was the sole focus of Glen’s life; as a child, he would often be found asking his Mum to put the ‘With The Beatles’ album on repeat and found himself musically influenced by John Lennon, Ernie Watts, John Martyn and Lowell George. Initially inspired, aged 12, to try the saxophone by his stepfather (himself a former professional saxophonist), he was soon guided towards the music of some of the great jazz saxophonists such as Charlie Parker, Cannonball Adderley and John Coltrane, and so his obsession with the instrument began. 

Glen has been fortunate enough to play professionally in a wide variety of styles and has shared stages with an array of excellent musicians, from playing classic Rock and Roll with Chubby Checker; Arab/Jazz fusion with Rabih Abou-Khalil; Reggae and Ska with Maroon Town; to Funk with Nik West (Prince, Quincy Jones); he regularly gigs with some of the UK’s finest Jazz musicians. He has played at venues and festivals across the UK and Europe, including the Freedom Sounds Festival in Cologne; and, in one of the highlights of his career, playing the headline slot of the world-renowned Umbria Jazz Festival, at Arena Santa Giuliana, in Perugia.

Glen has been gigging regularly for over 25 years on saxes, flute, clarinet, electric bass, guitar and vocals; he also works as a horn section arranger and a recording session musician, both on location at some of London’s finest studios and working remotely from his home studio; and as a tutor on saxophone, clarinet and flute.

Favourite Springsteen songs: ‘Jungleland’ and ‘Lost In The Flood’

A couple of random facts about Glen: he makes the best croissants and pain au chocolat and is a bit of a petrolhead, with a love of vintage Italian automobiles.
