UnitedReggae.Com attended a live show of Glen’s in Beverly Hills and reported, “With so much original material to draw from, Glen had to pick and choose from the requests being called out from the crowd. He did 18 songs in his set and I was lucky enough to get a set list so you can peruse it and find all of the songs! Glen was brought back for an encore by his thrilled audience and gave us four more songs closing his set with Can’t Keep A Good Man Down, the title track to his album of the same name, his waist-length locks swaying to the riddim.”
Washington says, “As a drummer backing other artists, I’ve toured the world, playing in countries like Japan, North, South and Central America, all over Europe and all the Caribbean Islands. Now I am repeating those trips as the featured artist, and it’s a great feeling to see thousands of fans coming out for my performances.”
The musical career of Glenroy Washington, singer, songwriter and drummer, personifies the cliché; ”The race is not for the swift, but for those who can endure.” In 1997, he released his debut album ‘Brother To Brother’ and, to date, has released 11 albums. Fans and critics alike say there is not one bad song in his catalog. Washington made his first hit record “Rockers Not Crackers” in 1978 for the Joe Gibbs Record label; but he did not grace the charts again until the release of the hit “Kindness For Weakness” in 1998.
Over the years, Washington has recorded sporadically as a solo singer and extensively as a studio drummer and has laid tracks for various artists. Simultaneously, Washington was a full-time drummer (sometimes singer) in several different bands, such as: The Avengers, The Titans, and Happiness Unlimited. With Happiness Unlimited he migrated to the USA to work with Stevie Wonder.
From the resurgence of Glen Washington’s singing career, his smooth, raspy, bass voice has often been likened to that of Beres Hammond. Washington says, “Beres is one of my favorite entertainers, so I regard it as a compliment to be compared with him.”
