Glass Amp Vaughan Pizzafest 2016

Canadian rock and blues act “Glass Ampp” formed instantaneously when four neighbourhood friends decided to dedicate their combined energies into a soulful, passionate and electrifying band. Glass Ampp delivers unforgettably intense live performances and have garnered marquee gigs at TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) in 2009 and 2012, Junofest 2012, on extensive Southern Ontario Tours in 2013, at Vaughan Canada Day Festival 2013, at Canadian Music Week 2014, and most recently the grand prize at Rock 95- Local and Loud Battle of The Bands Contest 2014.

The magic of their rockin’ blues based sound is the key to their timeless, riff laden songs that are not simply the flavour of the week, but music that will be relevant in perpetuity. Glass Ampp’s onstage chemistry, raw-talent and innovative sound is undeniably electrifying, as is evident by the increasing, all age fan-base of dedicated admirers. The band states: “the intense connection with our audiences that we experience at every show is what we’re all about.”

Their debut EP, “Half Empty”, was produced by Matthew Von Wagner (USS, Crystal Castles, Most Non-Heinous, Alpha Galates and The Dunes) and assistant engineered by John Wozniak (Marcy Playground). The songs off their EP demonstrate the band’s incontestable talent and their distinctive sound which separates them from all other Indie bands. Alan Cross, music industry guru and Canadian radio broadcaster, described their original song “I Know You Know” as a “slow moving blues-rock song with soul”.

Following a relentless torrent of song writing sessions “Glass Ampp” is on the brink of recording their first full-length album as they head to the studio this summer. The band’s first North American Tour, which will be confirmed over the coming months, will launch Glass Ampp into the U.S. market. The first single off the new album will be supported by a music video, further touring, and a national radio campaign.
