BandPopRock

The Glad Version is an melodic Pop/Rock band from Minneapolis. (see: Love-Cars, Sugar) We're pretty straight ahead, but i think we make some interesting twists and turns in our songwriting.

Biography

Influences: Dinosaur Jr, Karate, Randy Newman
*The main thing that sets us apart from the bands we've played with over the years is songwriting. I think we write solid songs with good lyrics and good hooks (when necessary).
