It’s 2018 and Glass Tiger have marked 31 years of making music together. To make this year extra special, the band has teamed up with Johnny Reid to release their upcoming album ‘31’. The album includes special guest contributions from Julian Lennon (“Thin Red Line”), Alan Doyle (“My Song”), Véronic DiCaire (“Someday”) and Susan Aglukark and David R. Maracle (“Diamond Sun”).
With the album 31, Glass Tiger has entered its third decade of a phenomenal music career. 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 on vocals and guitar, Sam Reid on keyboards, Al Connelly on guitar, and Wayne Parker on bass, as well as longtime drummer Chris McNeill who joined in 2000. The album’s numerical title refers to the years between the release of their 1986 international pop smash, “Don’t Forget Me,” and the studio sessions for the new album, which was recorded in Nashville by fellow Canadian entertainer Johnny Reid. Citing the band as one of his musical influences, Johnny Reid guided Glass Tiger back to the songs that made them stars in Canada and beyond. Their 1986 debut album, The Thin Red Line, reached quadruple-platinum sales in Canada and spawned consecutive Juno Award-winning singles “Don’t Forget Me” and “Someday.” Both were Top 10 pop hits in the U.S. and the band earned a Grammy nomination for Best New Artist. That momentum led to arena tours around the world with artists like Tina Turner and Journey. In Canada, the band notched many more hits such as “I’m Still Searching,” “Animal Heart,” and “Rescued (By the Arms of Love)” – which all make an encore appearance on 31.
After 31 years together, Glass Tiger has no plans to stop touring anytime soon. There’s no doubt the upcoming gigs will be something special!
