Glen Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket at Bull Run
January 20 @ 8:00 pm
Glen Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket plays Friday, Jan, 20, at the Bull Run Restaurant in Shirley.
During his years as lead singer of Toad the Wet Sprocket, the band’s elegant folk/pop sound and his honest, introspective lyrics helped them forge a close bond with their fans. Since starting his solo career, Phillips has pared his music down to its emotional core, concentrating on the simple truths of love and relationships, with a profound spiritual understanding.
“Swallowed by the New” takes on life’s difficult transitions and delivers some of the Phillips’ most vulnerable songs. “I made this album during the dissolution of a 23 year marriage, Phillips says. “A major chapter of my life was coming to a close, and I discovered early on that I had to work hard to get through the transition with compassion and clarity. These songs were a big part of that process.”
This album is full of the inviting melodies that have always marked Phillips’ work, while his singing reaches a new degree of intimacy and immediacy.
Doors open at 6pm for dinner and seating. Showtime is 8pm.Share
