As a singer/songwriter Glenn is a disciple of Southern US soulful rock/r’n’b, founding and fronting Sydney band Dog The Duke since 2014. Their 2015 release “The Breaker EP” (Matt Fell, Love HZ) saw singles “The Breaker” hit #1 on the iTunes blues charts and “Secondhand Blues” sit on the AMRAP regional top 10 for 5 weeks. With a revolving line up of pro players, performances over the east coast of NSW (including Sydney Blues Festival, Australian Music Week) won the band a solid fanbase and warm regard from peers and venues for their level of musicianship, onstage chemistry and professionalism. The guys have been privileged to open for Eugene “Hideaway” Bridges (Brass Monkey Cronulla), Russell Morris (Brass Monkey), Richard Clapton (Evan Theatre), The Radiators (Heritage Bulli), Ray Beadle (Bombie Bar), Marshall Okell (The Vanguard) & Chase The Sun (Beaches Thirroul).

He had the priviledge of being part of Team Keith Urban on season 1 of “The Voice Australia” in 2012 and went on to tour as the solo support act for r’n’b legends Boyz II Men on their Australian tour in the same year, returning to The Voice in season 2, 2013, as part of the backing vocal team.
