It all began in the summer of 1984 when a band from Newmarket, Ontario called Tokyo spent two evenings opening for Boy George and Culture Club at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Gardens. Their dynamic, original sound captured the moment of the mid 80’s and they soon became a major force in suburban high schools and the Ontario club circuit. When a record deal was finally signed with Capitol Records, Tokyo officially became Glass Tiger.
31, the new album from Glass Tiger. Recorded and produced in Toronto and Nashville by Johnny Reid. 31 features 11 Glass Tiger hit songs reimagined with traditional acoustic instruments as well as two new tracks, “Wae Yer Family” co-written and featuring Johnny Reid and “Fire It Up.” The album also includes special guest contributions from Julian Lennon (“Thin Red Line”), Alan Doyle (“My Song”), Véronic DeCaire (“Someday”) and Susan Aglukark and David R. Maracle (“Diamond Sun”).
Few bands can tour the world for 31 years, and still enjoy each other’s company. Glass Tiger are still going strong. An upcoming Canadian tour with Johnny Reid and a highly anticipated new album on it’s way, 2018 looks to be another strong year for the band
