At a young age, the phrase “the girl can sing” could be heard amongst Winnipeg’s brightest in the scene. The proclaimation moved on to Edmonton, Alberta where Glenham’s writing style and confidence grew towards the eventual recording of her first album, Brave New World in 2006. The album received immediate fanfair from The Edmonton Journal, CBC Radio and !earshot.
Feeling the draw of the milder temperatures, Glenham migrated further west settling in somewhere between the scarfs and scruffs of Vancouver's indie music landscape. In 2009, she released her second independent LP with the help of Jesse Gander at The Hive Studios. ‘Focus Pull’ featured Brasstronaut's Edo Van Breemen and You Say Party's Al Boyle on drums. After a glowing album review by the Georgia Straight, which threw Neko Case and Fiona Apple comparisons into the ring, the alt-weekly took their praise one step further and bestowed a "Best of Vancouver 2009" accolade upon the transplanted musician.
Sir Run Run's Tiny Dynasty is an opportunity to hang out in the early evening, drink some nice beer (or your preferred equivalent), socialize a bit, and also hear great performances by a wide range of exceptional artists.
