Glen Phillips of Toad the Wet Sprocket at Bull Run
January 20 @ 8:00 pm
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
