The Glass Hours are American songwriters Brad Armstrong and Megan Barbera. Their music blurs between Sunday afternoon country-folk and the Golden Age of the 1970s. Their self-titled nine-song debut album will be released by Cornelius Chapel Records in early 2024.
“I don’t think there is anybody writing songs today that Brad’s lyrics wouldn’t stand up against. He’s as good as any of the very best songwriters doing it. For me, what makes his lyrics unique is how smart and dimensional they are, but accessible at the same time. That’s truly difficult to do. He was a poet before he was a musician and that comes across in his songs" - Maria Taylor of Azure Ray
The songs go where they want to go; Brad and Megan simply try to stay out of the way. Although it is nearly impossible, in this new world of niche artistry, not to pick a genre camp and pitch a tent, The Glass Hours seem intent on trying. Yet, there is a thread that ties the whole thing together, and that is the constant tension and tapestry of their voices harmonizing. Every song on The Glass Hours was written with the idea of this harmony and interaction, point and counterpoint, between two voices trying to come together as one.
