Glenn's song 'Another Hank Williams Night' from 'Workin' Man' had a great run of 14 weeks on the European Country Music Chart Top 100. Watch for the new single 'Your Time Is Coming' from 'I'm In' release July 30th 2007. Glenn Douglas Reid was born in Waverley, Nova Scotia, raised in Montreal, Quebec, and has spent most of his adult life in Toronto, Ontario although his music has taken him all over Canada many times. A very proud Canadian, Glenn's music often reflects his love of his country and the people therein. Before settling on performing and songwriting as a career Glenn spent time as an aircraft mechanic in the Canadian Armed Forces, an apprentice electrician for Canadian National Railways, and as a cook for various restaurants. Glenn's love of cooking remains to this day, although the main beneficiaries of his hobby these days are his wife Cindy and their dinner guests. Glenn's musical influences are many and varied. From his jazz drumming father Crawford comes a love of big bands and crooners. From his square dancing Nova Scotian mother Greta, a love of traditional country artists such as hank Williams Sr., hank Snow, Patsy Cline, et al. Coming of age through the 60's and 70's brought Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, and Buddy Holly, followed by peace loving pop icons like the Beatles, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, and Credence Clearwater Revival. Traces of all these influential creators can be found in Glenn's music to this day. All of Glenn's songs come from personal experiences and the people who have shared them. The current CD "I'm In" and the new songs reflect Glenn's experiences through falling in love, battling cancer (and winning, so far), getting married, reflecting on his beloved Nova Scotia and much, much more. Also on the new CD, included as a bonus track, Glenn's first recorded Christmas song entitled "This Christmas Time".
