‘with heartfelt lyrics and melancholy Celtic air you can almost smell the acrid smoke from a hundred campfires
and see the blood staining the wattle. **** Cow Punk Quarterly
‘Glenn’s strong and weather beaten voice rings true…this man is a poet.’ Dave Steel
‘…a style that is earthy, Australian and very much his own’. Yarn up Magazine
Glenn Skuthorpe’s musical journey transcends the country/folk/roots/blues crossroads, creating a unique sound
reminiscent of Springsteen and Steve Earle. With soulful lyricism and a street-hardened eye, Glenn is a vital and
compelling storyteller with poetic lyrics full of love and loss, death, betrayal and renewal.
Glenn’s first album ‘Out of the Darkness’, was released in 2002 and received rave reviews and extensive airplay.
His second album ‘Restless Souls’, again produced by Steve Francis, was followed by a national tour that
included remote pubs in Cunnamulla and Bourke to Newtown, inner Sydney. Festival performances at Woodford,
The National Folk Festival, The Blue Mountains Folk and Roots Festival and Illawarra Folk Festival gave
audiences a moving performance of beautifully crafted songs that explored universal themes.
While recording his third album ‘Nothing Like Rain’ in 2006, Glenn and his music featured on ABC television
program ‘Message Stick’. ‘Nothing Like Rain’, produced by Martin Hailey and Glenn Skuthorpe, received great
reviews and reinforced his reputation as a powerful songwriter and performer.
Glenn’s music has featured in a number of films including a short film by award winning writer/director Wayne
Blair and Adrian Wills’ film When the natives get restless. Recently Glenn’s song ‘Ghost on Port River’ was
included in ‘Semaphore Songs’, a compilation of original songs by South Australian music writers and performers
inspired by Semaphore and Port Adelaide.
Adelaide based, Glenn makes regular appearances around the local pub scene and regularly travels interstate to
perform. He has supported artists Jenny Morris, Tex Perkins and Michelle Shocked and appeared at the
Semaphore Music Festival, Dorrigo Folk and Bluegrass Festival and the Dreaming Festival, amongst others.
With ‘Great Beyonder’ Glenn again speaks through his songs, emotionally and lyrically capturing moving
fragments of the human condition. Produced by Glenn, Martin Hailey and Douglas Petherick, ‘Great Beyonder’
features some of Australia’s most highly revered country and roots musicians. The launch of ‘Great Beyonder’ in
early 2013 will be followed by a national tour.
