Glass Fortress Talks a Whole Lot on Music, Writing, and Repeating the Process!

Alternative rockers GLASS FORTRES have been creating music since late 2013. Going on to release their debut album and a follow-up all new single with way more content coming soon! They just want to continue writing and recording material, collaborating with others as well for their plans in the future. The band talks about all of this and a whole lot more.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

We started off with getting together to go over the song American Love Vol.1 which started our journey together. After a few songs in we knew we had something special and so Glass Fortress born co-founded by Louie Salerno and Jose Crespo in Des Plaines IL.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

Louie: I thought glass fortress was kind of an oxymoron and funny, yet kinda cool and serious sounding

Jose: I agree. I wanted to be transparent and yet, memorable. 

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

Right now there are a ton of great indie bands out there. We don’t want to elevate on over the other, so we encourage everyone to just explore and support the ones you really like.

4. How would you describe your style?

Really any kind of music ideas we can do. It doesn't matter if it fits this genre or that genre, if it has melody or if it’s fun to play, you know, go for it.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We have released our 1st Album this past May 19th entitled, Beautiful Sky.

We followed this with the single release this past August 17th of the song:  American Love Vol. 1.  

Everything has a Rock vibe to it whether it’s heavy, light and in the middle. 

We love to express deep feelings, past experiences in what we write. Expect some deeper stuff that is in the works for 2021 singles releases.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

Yes, we are looking to release our next song called "First Love" on February 2nd 2021 once the mixing and mastering are complete. Look out for the pre-order date that is soon to be posted on our bands Facebook and Instagram pages.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We haven't really considered touring at this time. If the opportunity comes up, maybe play at a benefit concert.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

We look forward to continue recording and releasing more of our songs that we have written over the years and collaborating with other artists as well ;)

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

The lyrics were written in a way to reach out to them. We really wanted write songs that matter. Maybe help someone during a dark time in their life and encourage them to keep going despite any challenges they face. We try to put a lot of meaning into what we do and with some songs we don't take ourselves seriously and joke around showing our funny side too.
