The Glorious Veins - Self-titled 12" LP


Feeling a bit camera shy


They came together with a mutual appreciation for all kinds of styles and a predilection for blending these influences to create a sound of their own.

The band’s singer and primary songwriter is Paul Pangman. Born and raised in Wisconsin, Paul showed a love and affinity for music from a very young age. Paul came to New York at the age of 18 to attend Columbia University, where he picked up the guitar and started writing music. In a few years he wrote well over 100 songs but he needed to find a band to play them. Fortunately for him, that was all about to change.

Matt “howlin” Howels, the guitarist, was born and raised in London, England. He taught himself how to play at age 12 and has been blowing minds with his slashing skills ever since. In the UK, he played with many different bands while in college at Southhampton and in London after graduation. In October of 2007, Matt moved to New York City where he immediately fell into the downtown blues scene before joining The GV’s.

Lee Grasso, the bassist, was born and raised in Connecticut. Originally a guitar player, Lee found himself playing bass for theGV's after they did a line-up change during August of '08.

And last but not least, drummer Wiggy Colmenares. Born and raised in the Philippines, Wiggy started playing the drums in middle school. Music became his passion and he went on to play in many successful Filipino rock bands. He moved to New York City in 2007 with his family and now lives in Queens.
