Along with his solo performances, Glass has played with Vermont musicians including Myra Flynn, Gregory Douglass, Thea Wren and The Beerworth Sisters. According to his website, Glass’ catalog of songs “range from playful pop hooks to haunting ballads – tied together by soulful vocals and lyrics that touch on themes of trauma, isolation, heartbreak, and elusive glimmers of hope.”

The Free Press has presented monthly livestreams with Vermont musicians since May, after the COVID-19 pandemic shut down most in-person performances. Those taking part include Henry Jamison, Francesca Blanchard, Troy Millette, Jamie Lee Thurston, Marcie Hernandez and Sarah King.
