Glenn has been running Sound of Pop since mid-2008. He brings an unwavering passion for great music and those who create it, combined with a strong music business background and experience as a published songwriter, manager, performer and engineer/producer, to SOP.

He has been in love with music since his parents bought him his first “Sears” guitar and Elvis songbook at age 8 and if you persuade him with a bottle of Masi he might just let you listen to his age 8 karaoke rendition of Elvis’s “Return to Sender”. Buyer Beware.

When not working on music, Glenn can usually be found playing hockey or mountain biking on Gaspereau Mountain with his trail-loving Springer Spaniel Meeya and his inspiring visual artist and partner Angela.
