Though The Vicious Martinis is a new band, its members are anything but new to the scene. After two European releases on IDE Music with Sorry About Your Daughter, singer Glenn Hall teamed up with guitarist Brian Gass in the Mid-Atlantic rock powerhouse combinationLOCK. After this project ran its course, Hall and Gass continued to pen songs as a duo but soon longed for new challenges and the energy and excitement of performing live. Bryan Smith was recruited from the disbanded power-pop rock band EBO (signed to Maverick Records) and proved not only to be a skilled bassist, but a well-suited songwriting partner. John Hardwick is a seasoned and highly energetic drummer whose chops add a refined rock edge to The Vicious Martinis sound. The result is a seasoned cast that is mature enough to know their strengths yet ambitious enough to try new things.
