New Music from Glenn Smyth (if you like Kasabian & Oasis)

Glenn Smyth

Great sounding tunes coming out of Birmingham.  Spool Going Round approves of this new rock music from Glenn Smyth

EP “A Sense of Freedom” out October 1

1) Lost And Found

2) An Eagle Flies Alone

3) Dead To The World

4) What Have I Done To Deserve This?

5) Nobody Knows

Mixed by Owen Morris (Oasis, The Verve) and produced by Dave McCabe, ‘Lost And Found’ is the follow up to ‘Dead To The World’ and ‘What Have I Done To Deserve This?’

After a youth spent playing football for Derby County, a near career-ending fractured fibula and tibia meant Glenn had time on his hands. This resulted in him picking up the guitar for the first time and his journey into music began.

Two cult Birmingham bands in Escobar and Evil Alien followed, each bringing parallel levels of success in two very different worlds. Escobar – an up tempo rock n roll band in the mold of Oasis and The La’s, and Evil Alien – soundscapes, beeps and synths influenced by the likes of Cabaret Voltaire and Depeche Mode, championed by Zane Lowe, BBC Radio 1 and Q Magazine.

After eleven of Glenn’s songs were published by two of the biggest companies in the industry, Glenn set about recording his solo album with long term collaborator Dave McCabe, and in a twist of fate, he also began working with a man that had a huge influence on him when he was growing up, Owen Morris. In what without doubt is his strongest work to date, ‘A Sense Of Freedom’ (named after the cult Scottish film) is a collection of five songs, five very personal compositions which speak from his life experiences with integrity and authenticity.

About Spool Going Round

If you like my blog and have access to programming and would like to do a radio/internet show together, please contact me. My name is Mike. I am an on-air radio DJ. I fell in love with radio in Chicago and then took that passion to someplace where I could actually get on the air. My travels took me to Seattle, WA, Eugene and Portland, OR and Washington D.C., where I was able to have my own morning show. I've had crab cakes with Warren Zevon, sat backstage and interviewed Sting, had Melissa Etheridge sing to me from the front row and I loved every minute of it. That passion for music still burns strong in me and I love to talk music and be turned on to music. Sharing new music with people is what got me interested in radio in the first place. It is wonderful to be able to talk music with you. "Go ahead you're on the air..." Read more:
