Within a few moments of listening to acoustic alternative folk duo Glass House, it is apparent that these are two musicians deeply dedicated to their craft. Comprised of guitarist Mark Vickness and vocalist David Worm, their sound is defined by strong songwriting, often with a socio-political slant, passionate vocals, and a tasteful blend of folk, jazz, pop, rock and world music elements.
Both have honed their craft over several years of study and performance in a variety of contexts, most notable of which is David Worm’s work with Bobby McFerrin; in 1989 he became a founding member of Bobby McFerrin's Voicestra ensemble and has remained a regular performer with McFerrin, featured on recordings, videos, and touring internationally. Mark holds two music degrees for composition and continues his studies to this day.
In live performances, Glass House delivers their music with a sincerity and ease that draws the audience into their world. They incorporate live looping, vocal percussion, and a wide array of guitars, most notably a double necked 6-string and bass guitar called a harp guitar. With a commitment to delivering cleverly-crafted and thought-provoking songs, and fueled by their solid backgrounds and obvious love of music, Glass House is quickly becoming a much demanded live act, having been recently well received at Yoshi's and the acclaimed Noe Valley Music Series.
If you are a fan of songwriting in the jazzy world style of Sting, and are looking for music with a positive message that’s got some grit, check out Glass House.
