Glenn Tilbrook – the Voice and Face of Squeeze
Glenn Tilbrook is the voice and face of Squeeze. It is over 40 years since he first answered Chris Difford’s ad inviting like-minded people to form the what became that evergreen band.
Contrary to the title of his last album ‘Happy Ending’ there is no end in sight for Glenn whether it be solo, a duo with Chris or Squeeze. The song writing ability remains undimmed as witnessed by a Guardian journalist who wrote in amazement as the audience in Bristol in September last year yelled out to hear the new songs from ‘Cradle to the Grave’ along with the songs from his substantial back catalogue.
A Glenn Tilbrook solo concert is a gig not to be missed. Expect to hear the classic hits such as Muscles from a Shell, Up the Junction, Take Me I’m Yours, Slap and Tickle, Goodbye Girl, Another Nail in my Heart, Tempted, Is that Love, Black Coffee in Bed; a few beautifully penned recent tunes and the occasional wonderfully presented cover rendition of a personal favourite. Don’t be surprised to be in awe of his musicianship or how the voice continues to grow in strength while remaining unmistakably Glenn Tilbrook.
Glenn Tilbrook announces that his upcoming solo tour dates will be promoting awareness and donations for The Trussell Trust, the charity that supports a network of foodbanks around the UK. There will be food drop points and collection boxes at Komedia on the night and Glenn will also be donating all profits from his merchandise, including an exclusive 4 track EP, to the organisation.
Glenn says “it is shameful that in the 21st century there are people that can’t afford to put food on the table.. Anyone, from any walk of life, can fall upon dire times, and I hope that by doing this tour it will remind people that there is a very real need. Most of us can do something to help – be it giving some food or a little money – and I hope people coming to the shows are inspired to donate.”
Foodbanks provide a minimum of three-days’ nutritionally balanced, non-perishable tinned and dried foods that have been donated by the local community. A list of items in a typical food parcel are: cereal, soup, pasta, rice, tinned tomatoes/pasta sauce, lentils, beans and pulses, tinned meat, tinned vegetables, tea/coffee, tinned fruit, biscuits, UHT milk and fruit juice. If possible audience members are asked to check with local foodbanks to see what supplies are currently needed.
