Lonnie Glass / Bio

My musical life began in 1957 when my Mother took me to see Elvis Presley in Toronto, Canada. I knew I
wanted to be on stage.
several years later, when I was 14 in 1964, I saw The Beatles and knew I wanted to play music for my life.

I played in bands throughout the '60's as a Bass Player and Frontman Singer... Throughout the '70's I played
in bands and gigged around Southern Ontario.

In early 1980's I began, with my boyhood friend, a ZZTOP Tribute Band which toured for 27 years. During that
time I began writing songs and have maintained that creative spark throughout.

Began Songwriting in 1982. 1st CD was recorded in Virginia Beach, Va. in 1990. I have a catalogue of 145
registered songs with SOCAN.

I began to research The American Civil War in 2004 and recorded "Chapter Of Night" in 2010. I subsequently
toured the Southern USA in the Summer of 2010.

I moved to British Columbia in 2011 and reside here still.

I have, to date, recorded 6 CD's in several genres from Folk to Blues.

I have co-written 60 tunes with Norman Ball (poet from Leesburg, Virginia) who contributed to my Civil War
Project with lyrics to several of the tunes. We remain co-writing buddies.

I began to expand my writing and move into more Blues/Jazz influences with a NEW CD on its way...ready for 2015...

In 2014 i went back to my BLUES roots and formed "Visions Of Gumbo" a Hot mostly acoustic Blues Quartet...We play all over Vancouver Island and are amassing a wide audience from young to old....who DIG the HOTness of Chicago Blues...
