Hard-hitting, gritty, infectious, and melodic, this power trio blends riff-heavy guitars, explosive rock drumming, and soulful bass rhythms to create a sound that is both informed by the past and undeniably modern.
San Diego-born power rock trio, Heavy Glow, was formed in August of 2008 by Jared Mullins, vocalist/multi-instrumentalist, and bassist Joe Brooks after the break-up of their first band. The trio set out to record their first EP at Velvet Revolver’s Studio in Los Angeles with legendary producer, Stevie Salas.
Their self-titled EP contains six songs that capture the band’s ability to communicate raw, real music. Under the production of Salas, who has worked with such artists as Rod Stewart, Mick Jagger, George Clinton, Justin Timberlake and T.I., the EP was recommended by San Diego radio station 94.9 KBZT-FM in June. Singles “It’s Too Late” and “Better Line”also receive regular airplay on San Diego stations 105.3 KIOZ-FM and 91.1 XTRA-FM as well as podcast play in Italy, Canada and Germany.
With the addition of new drummer Dan Kurtz, the band has released a follow-up entitled “The Filth and the Fury.” The EP contains 5 new songs all cut with the band playing live in one room over a period of 6 hours.
