Slide player and “bluesician” Johnny Glass is a recent face on the Austin music scene, and has already developed buzz and reputation for his unique and power guitar licks. Glass, a recent member of Band Of Fools of Tallahassee Florida, is a young player who is capable of sweat breaking rock solos, as well as sweet and timeless blues licks. With heroes such as Jimmy Page, Derek Trucks, John Mayer, Paul Kossoff, and Jeff Beck, Glass’ playing takes him long beyond his years. His musicianship has afforded him opportunities to perform for diverse crowds as well as musicians such as Doctor John and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.
In the short few months Glass has resided in Austin, he has made an impression on players, promoters, and audiences alike. A great team player and a supportive attitude has hailed Glass as a great musician to work with both on and off the stage. Well versed in blues, rock, jazz, country, and pop, Glass is capable of providing solid playing on a variety of music styles.
Johnny Glass’ short term goal is to connect with talented and focused musicians who have a need for electric/slide guitar playing in both live and studio settings. Glass is also available for bass work if the need should arise. Professional equipment includes a sponsorship from Midnight Lace Guitars, use of Fender/Vox Amps, in addition to other pieces.
