Glenn Swan, from New Orleans, started playing guitar at the age of 11. At 14, Glenn auditioned for, and was accepted to the prestigious New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA). During this period, Glenn studied under the tutelage of the great Jazz educator Ellis Marsalis. Ellis Marsalis has brought to fruition many great musicians. You should know his two sons Wynton and Branford, as well as other former students Terence Blanchard, Reginald Veal & Harry Connick Jr. By the time Glenn reached 16, he was already supporting himself professionally, playing in the many New Orleans area jazz clubs.
Upon his graduation from NOCCA and High School, Glenn accepted a prestigious scholarship and ventured north to the famed Berklee College of Music in Boston. Only staying a year, Glenn worked hard at increasing his proficiency in piano. While studying as a major in Production & Engineering of Music, Glenn says that, "I became serious about playing piano because it is the principal instrument for arranging." Learning to produce tracks at Berklee under his mentor Michael Burrell, Glenn had the opportunity to work with a lot of great singers and as a result, became serious about singing. It was here that Glenn had the revelation that he wanted to expand beyond jazz guitar and focus on being a recording artist and producer.
With this in his heart he left Berklee College of Music and moved to New York City. Upon his arrival, Glenn quickly got a job working in one of NYC's top recording studios, Unique Recording. Glenn had the excellent opportunity of suddenly working in sessions with a lot of major artists including, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Naughty by Nature, Rodney Jerkins, and one of his R&B favorites Jodeci. It was here that he met Vincent Davis, Keith Sweats manager. Vincent became a powerful influence on Glenn and through this relationship, he was signed to Elektra Records. Glenn believed his future was set, but that was not to be. After 4 years under contract, Glenn never made a record. He did eventually win his release from his contracts and moved on.
On October 27, 2000, Glenn was featured twice for his production skills on MTV's House of Style. He also appeared again on May 12, 2001. Glenn recently appeared in 3 showings of the Growing Up Gotti show in February & March 2005, as well as the June 3rd, 2005 segment of ABC TV's 20/20 with Barbara Walters. Glenn is currently producing music for various major label artists while also working on his new CD which will be released this winter. Glenn's ultimate goal is to build his own production company/record label.
