Feeling a bit camera shy


The band Glen Iris first formed when Deb Miller met Stephen Marr in the summer of 2007. Deb, a talented singer and lyricist, had just returned from a semester abroad at Oxford studying poetry. Stephen, a gifted guitar and piano player with a keen ear for catchy melodies and unique chord progressions, had been looking for a writing partner to contribute lyrics to his upbeat, playful compositions. They turned out to be a perfect match. Soon they were not only collaborating on songs together, but also happily married. They spent the next couple years working on new material, and perfecting their sound.

During that time their friends Joshua Monteroso (bells, keyboard, percussion) and Derek Halet (lead guitar) joined the band. In the summer of 2010, with 15 strong tracks under their belt, they brought in Nashville-based Ryan Truso to produce their first album, and hired two studio musicians to play on the recordings--James Willis and Spencer Wynn, both of whom eventually became full time band members. The result is their self-titled debut album, Glen Iris, which they released in the summer of 2011--a collection of meticulously crafted indie pop anthems that perfectly showcase Deb and Stephen's joyful, carefree musical sensibilities.

While promoting their newly released record, Glen Iris has held residencies at Old Town Pub, 72 North, & Kings Row. They entered the world of radio by showcasing their new material on KUCR 89.1 (an affliate of KPCC 89.3), and was most recently featured on the KBIG 104.3 new music blog. They performed to thousands at Los Angeles’ summer movie event Outdoor Cinema Food Fest in 2010 & 2011, and will be performing for Street Food Cinema again in August 2012.

Whether playing to a huge crowd, a local venue, or intimate studio, the members of Glen Iris approach each song with honesty and enthusiasm. Deb’s bright and catchy melodies are highlighted by Stephen's intricate arrangements of cello, classical guitar, glockenspiel, & percussion; and that signature sound can be heard best on featured tracks Black & Blue and Excavation.
