Vancouver — Adrian Glynn is set to release his debut album Bruise next week (September 6th) on Light Organ Records. Shortly after the album’s release, Glynn will hit the road for a tour of western Canada (full list of dates below). Eastern Canada dates will be announced soon. In the meantime, download an MP3 of the album’s ‘Blue Belle Lament’ here and watch a video about the making of Bruise below.
Adrian Glynn composes on acoustic and lap-slide guitars, as well as a balalaika, a Ukrainian folk instrument passed down through a century of his ancestry. A storyteller in his own right, Glynn has the ability to hypnotize listeners with tales of sinners, lovers, and redemption-seekers. In concert, he is a captivating and passionate performer, often using only his voice to carry the weight of his words.
Adrian Glynn left behind a budding career as a character actor embodying pimps and junkies to emerge as a gifted singer-songwriter. In 2008, he spent nearly a year living in India, where his music received national radioplay and TV exposure. While there, he was also given the opportunity to teach guitar to disadvantaged Bombay youth. The trip inspired many stories, some of which were released in the form of a travel memoir entitled Fish Skin Memories: Impressions of India and the Middle East.
For the last two years, Glynn has been a member of celebrated roots/spoken word ensemble, The Fugitives, and appears on their critically acclaimed records Find Me and Eccentrically We Love, released in 2010 through Light Organ Records. Winnipeg’s Uptown Magazine described the group’s sound as “capable of achieving dizzying, Arcade Fire-ish crescendos, replete with parallel melodies, complex harmonies and brimming torrents of emotion.”
In 2010, Glynn was selected as one of BC’s top 20 artists to participate in The Peak Performance Project, a five million dollar initiative sponsored by Vancouver’s newest AAA station, 100.5 The Peak FM.
