“Glass is a blues-infected troubadour…”
The best compliment songwriter and front woman, Leigh Glass, has ever received was when a fan approached her after a show and said,”Your music makes me wanna go home and make love to my husband.” The bluesy songstress and her band, the Hazards, play their own gutsy, charismatic style of rock and roll. The songs are original and the live show is sweaty, passionate, funny, and engaging.
“I tell people, if you sit in the front row, you’re gonna get (accidentally) spit on!”
With deep roots in Western North Carolina – – her family is from Bethel (Cold Mountain) in Haywood County — she proudly notes her musical pedigree. “My great aunts and uncles and my grandfather were big-time bluegrassers.”
Her 2010 album, The Drone, made the top 20 on WNCW. She has recorded with engineer/producer Rich Brotherton (Robert Earl Keen Band) and Chip Martin of Nashville, TN. Glass is currently recording a new album and continually plays live- solo, and with her band.
“Glass’ sound is reminiscent of Alannah Myles (she of “Black Velvet” fame) but updated for 2010″ – Alli Marshall (A&E Writer)
“Leigh Glass is a powerhouse of a singer who exudes Pat Benatar confidence with Joan Jett sensibilities.” – Mountain Xpress
“Leigh Glass backs pithy songwriting and plenty of stage swagger with a stellar band.” – Stacy Claude (Dehlia Low)
