It all began in the summer of 1984 when a band from Newmarket, Ontario called Tokyo spent two evenings opening for Boy George and Culture Club at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens.
Their dynamic, original sound captured the moment of the mid 80’s and led them to signing a record deal with Capitol Records. Tokyo officially became Glass Tiger.
Glass Tiger’s 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.
Following this, the bands next two albums Diamond Sun and Simple Mission solidified their reputation as being one of Canada’s better song crafters. And they are still going strong, 31 years later.
With their latest album, 31, Glass Tiger is now into the third decade of a phenomenal music career. Recorded in Nashville by fellow Canadian entertainer Johnny Reid, Glass Tiger was guided back to the songs that originally made them stars in Canada and beyond, with a stronger Celtic influence. Just as remarkable, the core band members have maintained a brotherhood built on respect and friendship throughout that journey. Today the band includes original members Alan Frew, Sam Reid, Al Connelly and Chris McNeill who joined in 2000.
