Gavin Glass – studio maven, singer/guitarist/songwriter, radio host – Goes For A Few Jars With Pat Carty To Celebrate The Release Of His New Album.
Mr Glass has seen his share of ups and downs. He first came to public attention as part of Lisa Hannigan’s band, with whom he toured America several times. “Yeah, eight or nine months of the year. I loved my adventures with her. We did a morning TV show in Philadelphia, after travelling overnight, hanging around the green room, suited and booted, with five minutes to spare, so I nipped out for a smoke. I came back in to this queue of dudes, one dressed as a tennis player, another in double denim, another with the polo neck. This clip board person starts freaking out “come on, get out there!”, so I’m walking out and I can see the band in the dressing room. It turns out I’m in a line-up for father’s day gifts, live on the telly in my cravat and gear, in rag order. Disaster!”
Glass has nothing but good things to say about his time with the fêted Ms Hannigan. “I've read in other places that I was Lisa’s “musical director”, but that was not the case, let me put that one to bed. She’s just a world-class singer, one of the greats, I just wanted to be doing other things musically, and the studio was starting to take off."
