Glen Phillips

Glen Phillips is the lead singer and main songwriter for the band Toad the Wet Sprocket, which he joined when he was only 14. In the words of local critic James Christopher Monger, "Phillips has matured into . . . a quiet storm that dutifully blends Cat Stevens' confident huskiness and Jackson Browne's weary but warm observer of all things broken." Of Glen's latest album, "Swallowed by the New," Chris Steffen of writes, "Songs like 'Leaving Old Town' and 'Unwritten' explicitly describe moving beyond the past and into the unknown." Glen Phillips has evolved into one of the great folk-rock songwriters of our time, still staying true to his Toad roots but expanding into new realms of heart, spirit, and delectable hooks.
