Johnna White exercised her musical chops previously as front woman for Jersey shore favorites Count 210. Johnna brings the same enthusiasm to Glen Closer adding warm yet intricate bass playing and her accomplished vocal technique.
Joe Rubin's talents have been shared with audiences before with bands like Saint Maybe and Jersey's own Film. Joe's drumming provides a solid foundation for the Glen Closer material. He also adds to the band's distinctive sound with his vocal leads and harmonies.
Jim Baeszler reprise's his role as Rubin's partner in Saint Maybe and Film. Jim's guitar stylings help to round out the trio's musical arrangements. He also adds poetic lyrics to match the bands melodic sensibility.
The same dedication to the craft of songwriting that captured the attention of those grizzled barflies can be found on PINE VIEW GROCERY, the debut CD from GLEN CLOSER
What the Critics are saying about Glen Closer
OUTSTANDING musical collaborative that manages to rock out both thoughtfully and convincingly..... a truly enjoyable collection of absolutely BRILLIANT audience-, radio- and A&R-ready tunes. ~ Al Muzer
The Aquarian Arts Weekly
it's all good...MOMENTS OF BRILLIANCE. The lyrical content of the CD is everything I'd expect from three experienced songwriters. Overall, a very good CD and I HAVE NO PROBLEM RECOMMENDING IT.
The music here is EXCELLENT, full of catchy guitar riffs ... moments most bands would probably kill to achieve.
I like it. The harmonic blend of voices is INFECTIOUS! When you think of Glen Closer, think stripped down roots rock with twangy guitars, thumping bass, garage quality drums, and melodies that are almost folky in their fragile simplicity. It's the kind of worn-in music you can hang onto...know you've found something you want to keep.
A THOUGHTFUL collection of pop rock tunes, full of hooks... reflective and often POIGNANT LYRICS with a gentle serenity... While getting free music is a perk of this trade, I'd feel better if I had paid for this one. They deserve it.
ISWM INDIE PICK OF THE MONTH!
Energy that bounces off the walls! Pine View Grocery is one of those albums that you could play, and want
to hear it again the moment it stops spinning. IT IS ADDICTIVE!
An 11-track album of pop rock ...IT'S A SOLID RELEASE!
The band is talented! A little pop, a little rock and mix of folk with lots of beat. It is a CD thought
that you might want to check out!
Glen Closer has an approach to rock-n-roll that most forget-let's rock!
Pine View Grocery is solid and WORTH EVERY PENNY SPENT....Glen Closer spins a total of 11 tracks of musical splendor and entertainment.
