Biography

Glo performs Secular as well as Spiritual music. Her Spiritual CD "My Heart Sings" released in 2009. Her secular CD "Heartache, Now That It's Over" released July of 2010, "Shadows of the Past “ released in January of this year, and her newest offering "Heart Fire" was just released.

She is signed with the 9 Lives Record Label. In February of this year she formed her Band "Glo & Embers" with the Members:

Gloria (Glo) Smith - Vocals
Phil Osborne - Lead guitar - Back-up Vocals
Tom Marsh - Bass guitar - Back-up Vocals
Doug King - Drums/Percussion

She hails from Ashland, KY and is in good company. This is the home town of singers such as The Judds.

Glo’s genre of music is mostly Blues/Rock. She is known for her husky throated Bluesy Melissa Etheridge-esque vocals.

Glo started out writing and publishing poetry as a young girl but always loved to sing her poetry before she wrote it. She still writes poetry prolifically.

Recently she decided to share her love of music with others, and to leave a legacy of song not only for those close to her but for anyone who truly loves music itself.

There was no greater way she could think of to love others, than to give herself to them in song. To Glo sharing the pure magic of touching another human heart with the gentle caress of music is an honor and a privilege.

She has been singing all her life and it is the ultimate joy of her life; a joy that has overflowed into the desire she now has to gift her music; which is her soul itself, along with her love of life to the world at large.
Glo has said, “How can ones heart hold such a love of music and not share it? It is my passion and my obsession.”

Glo loves to laugh and enjoy her life. As she says, "Both laughter and sadness produce tears but laughter also produces life... let’s live and sing about the journey!”

Excerpt from:

The Sands of Time
© Gloria Smith 05/21/10

One night the stars fell into her eyes
She suddenly knew that it was time to fly
Time to sing of the pain within her soul
Time to know that she really could be whole
And so she sang a little before she died
And she cried a little as she sang her life
The Angels tilted an ear toward the Earth
And sighed as they tried to hold back
The sands of time...

Lyrics

HEART OF FLAME

Written By: Gloria Smith

He rode a horse of fire
In the desert wind
He was her deepest desire
He became her greatest sin
Don’t fall in love
Or you’ll lose the game

Heart of Flame
Awww Honey you're to blame
You can melt a man
Before you know his name

Eyes of steel
Heart of ice
When you play honey
You don't play nice

The baby cries
As she rocks it to sleep
And for her own soul
She gently weeps
Within her heart
She keeps a secret name

Oh Heart of Flame
You know you're to blame
You can melt a man
Before you know his name

Eyes of steel
Heart of ice
When you play honey
You don't play nice

Her eyes tell no lies
In her den of sin
She'll rock you child
Again and again and again

Heart of Flame
Awww Honey you're to blame
You can melt a man
Before you know his name

Eyes of steel
Heart of ice
When you play honey
You don't play nice

Heart of Flame
Awww Honey you're to blame
Heart of Flame
Awww Honey you're to blame
Heart of Flame - Fast
Awww Honey you're to blame
