Glass House is David Worm and Mark Vickness. A duo of guitarist and vocalist that perform mostly contemporary tunes that flirt with such genres as funk, blues, and rock. They are joined by the Turtle Island String Quartet on their third release.
Influences listed include Sting, Peter Gabriel, and Dave Matthews Band. As I listened to the album I could hear these influences, but also a craftsmanship between two musicians; Worm, producing a contemporary, yet abstract, type of vocal style that flies his words across the backdrop of Vickness’ guitar work.
It only took two go rounds with the album to realize that it was definitely a relaxing album. It’s not flashy, simply a well put together album that will give you the opportunity to come to it and enjoy the soft melodies spun together by guitar, vocals, a few instances of percussion and strings. I can totally see myself enjoying the simplicity of the album after a hard day of work. Contemporary fans will love the album which boasts no explosive frills in a desperate need for attention, but rather a laid back sample of music written to be heard at your leisure. Well worth checking out.
