Genre: Rock, Spirit
Native New Yorker, Glenn Kidd's 2013 album; "Breathe, Love, Life" transcends genre and style, giving “Spirit Rock” a 21st Century meaning. This multi-talented singer, songwriter, and guitarist's extraordinary embodiment of music is interwoven with the magical influences of the 1950's, 60's, 70's, and 80's.
It's often said that to find the truth one must go within and listen with the heart. Glenn's music invites everyone to take that "journey of the soul". With catchy hooks, melodies and thought provoking lyrics, his music reflects awareness and consciousness from one song to the next, sparking one emotion after another.
"Breathe, Love, Life" features; Producer Larry Russell (Billy Joel), Steve Lukather (Toto), Tommy Mandel (Bryan Adams), Brian Dunne (Hall & Oates), Gregg Gerson (Mick Jagger), Steve Holley (Wings), Kenny Aaronson (Billy Idol & Joan Jett), Alan St Jon (Billy Squier), Arno Hecht (The Uptown Horns), John Merjave (Glen Burtnik), Benny Landa (Benny Landa), Joe Pecorino (Beatlemania), notable background vocalists, Marge Raymond, Cheryl Krebs, Jenna Ferone, Aja St Jon, and George Stass, and co-songwriting contribution on "Ballerina" by Phil Feit (Billy Idol & Joan Jett).
The first two singles, "Safe To Smile" and “Shangri-La” are being heard and seen daily on Internet radio, Reverbnation, and YouTube gaining a worldwide fan base. “Safe To Smile” with its memorable Beatlesque guitar intro is about honoring your Divine self, and not buying into other people's belief systems that are not your own. And, “Shangri-La” with its 1950's influenced slow shuffle is about facing the unknown yet knowing that everyone and everything has a purpose.
In the spring of 2013, Glenn recorded a new song, "God In Drag" with producer, Larry Russell, George Stass, and John McCurry (Julian Lennon) as a new single digital release and music video.
