The self-titled release by “Glacier Garden” is a refreshing collection of modern rock songs. Radio-friendly and radio-ready is perhaps the best term that describes this excellent CD. It is clear from listening to the CD, that this is a very talented band, both in terms of musicianship and songwriting. Many of the vocal performances on this album have a powerful sustain that fills the tracks with passion. “Beautiful” opens up with a beautiful acoustic intro and becomes engrained in one’s memory due to its highly melodic sound. Taking on a heavier rock edge is the equivalently addictive “Where You Been,” with its compelling guitar groove in the verses leading to a strong and melodic chorus. Other standout tracks include “Everything Forgives You,” and “Rusty Bedframes.” What’s more, this CD is crafted with highly professional production. Fans of U2, Radiohead, and REM will enjoy this CD.

Bio

Based in New York City, Glacier Garden was formed in early 2006 when musicians Will Folberth and Galen Criscione met. Each had been playing guitar for most of their lives and had been involved in numerous bands throughout high school and college. Both had spent most of their lives searching for the right band, and Glacier Garden was it.

New York native Anthony LoScalzo joined as the band's drummer shortly thereafter. He had been playing the drums for over 18 years and had been involved with many bands in the past – none that suited him quite as well as Glacier Garden. The band played a few shows in the City, but did not fully come together until the addition of bassist Jim Burkle. With the lineup completed, Glacier Garden began getting more frequent bookings at more exciting venues and recently recorded an EP, currently available on itunes and at cdbaby.com.

Glacier Garden's music has been described as melodic rock. Songs like "Beautiful" charm and possess with the drama and sensibility of sweet melody, while "Where You Been" and "You" deliver the steady crunch of old-fashioned rock and roll.

The band functions as a collective unit with the common goal of crafting the best possible songs to their ability. Their musical influences are wide-ranging, from Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Bruce Springsteen and the Beatles to Radiohead, U2, Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Eels. The band members have grown up on classic rock which can be heard in their music, but they also forge a definitively modern sound.

Glacier Garden has built a following in the New York area playing at clubs, colleges, and charity events.
