Glowbird / Bio

Glowbird traces its beginnings to the asphalt heat wave known as LA’s San Fernando Valley. Encased in a tiny Pacoima backhouse, Steve Dodd began writing songs that would eventually lead to Glowbird’s definitive sound. After a turbulent California courtship, however, Dodd was determined to leave behind his golden state ambitions and try the opposite coast. During this crossroad of Dodd’s life, he befriended Ray Rosas, a guitarist and effects-guru, at a local non-profit they worked at. The two started sharing musical ideas, past life experiences, and a yearning for authentic expression. A close friendship and creative partnership quickly developed, causing Dodd to reconsider his departure to the east. In a blurry Las Vegas tiki bar, Dodd and Rosas drafted their vision of what Glowbird would eventually become: introspective power-folk infused with lush guitar textures and vocal harmonies. Glowbird spent the next year composing; Dodd crafted a new batch of catchy melodies, while Rosas developed his own palette of moods and shades. In the fall of 2011 they recruited Alec Golya, a friend and musical collaborator of Rosas, on bass and began rehearsing and recording their first demo with Roger Moreau on drums. After sifting through a few drummers Glowbird finally found the element they needed with the addition of Christian Johnson, a New Jersey-bred drummer and electronic instrumentalist. Glowbird currently performs regularly in the LA area.
