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, Grinâ€™s Edge. With the addition of drummer Dan Kurtz, the trio set out to record their first EP at Velvet Revolverâ€™s Studio in Los Angeles with legendary producer, Stevie Salas.â€¨â€¨Their self-titled EP contains six songs that capture the bandâ€™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 has sold 2,000 copies and was recommended by San Diego radio station 94.9 KBZT-FM in June. Singles â€œItâ€™s Too Lateâ€ and â€œBetter Lineâ€ 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.â€¨â€¨The band is often compared to the likes of Cream, The White Stripes and The Black Keys.â€¨â€¨â€œSeventies rock swagger and crunchy guitar hooks abound on this rock trioâ€™s polished debut EP,â€ said San Diego City contributor Adam Gimbel.â€¨â€¨Heavy Glow recently signed to Australian-based StockXChange Music Group and has played more than 35 shows since February throughout the southwestern portion of the United States.â€¨â€¨According to Mullins the band strives for â€œhard-hitting, gritty, infectious and melodic rhythms to create a sound that is both informed by the past and undeniably modern.â€
The band anticipates a follow-up release due in early 2010 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.
