They say a great song, is a great song no matter the format, no matter the genre, no matter the era.
Glass Tiger is synonymous with great songs from a genre and an era destined to be “classic.” Just as singer, writer, performer, Johnny Reid has done, Glass Tiger has ventured into the studio and come out with 12 of their best songs totally reimagined. These iconic songs, will be presented with all the exquisite charm, honesty and simplicity as the day they were written.
This simple, organic, amped up acoustic format will show the audience just why these legendary songs have stood the test of time. Welcome to “Wae Yer Family” (With Your Family) the perfect evening of music, friendship, family, and storytelling that are sure to capture your heart.”
With five Juno Awards, agrammy nomination, four platinum albums and one gold record, 14 hit singles, over 5 million albums sold, Glass Tiger has solidified itself as an iconic Canadian act.
“Our performances have never been tighter, and we are playing at our highest level ever, we are re-ignited, recharged and looking forward to every show,” says lead singer Alan Frew.
Opening for Glass Tiger on this tour is ‘Country’s Adele’ – singer/songwriter Jessica Mitchell. Mitchel is, at heart, a storyteller. She has spent the last decade digging deeper into her artistry, focusing on writing new music and crafting her richly unique sound. As a result, she has become one of the music industry’s best kept secrets. Her tracks; “Don’t Love Me” and “Tear It Down”, landed on multiple Spotify playlists, including the coveted Wild Country List with more than half a million followers.
She caught the attention of The Toronto Star and Global News, among others, when a video she posted to Facebook of her hearing her single “Workin’ On Whiskey” on the radio for the first time went viral. The track was the top added Canadian Country song to radio at the time of release. 2016 was a ground-breaking year for the rising star.
In addition to opening for Kiefer Sutherland and Royal Wood on their Canadian tours, Mitchell performed at a number of major music festivals, snagged a coveted Guild Guitar Sponsorship, and achieved her first chart climbing hit single. Mitchell was also nominated for a CCMA Award for Roots Artist of the Year and 2017 found her on tour with country music legend Terri Clark, Ron Sexsmith and Bonnie Raitt.
