Based in Nashville, TN, roots-rock band Glass Cabin was formed by singer/songwriter Jess Brown and studio musician David Flint. After a decade of co-producing other artists, the two began collaborating on their own project at the onset of the pandemic, resulting in the self-titled debut album, Glass Cabin, and the release of their first single and official video, "Pray For Me, Pray For You." The full LP was released in October 2021.
WHY DID YOU GET INTO MUSIC: “It kind of chose me. I don't remember much from the years surrounding my father’s illness, his passing and the year that followed. It was like I’d fallen into a daze. Thankfully, there was a lake and forest just outside my bedroom window, and then music came and gave me a reason to move on. I’m still a bit of a square peg in a round world,” explains Glass Cabin’s writer and singer Jess Brown.
WHY THE LP: “I think Dave (Flint) and I were looking for some common ground, some magic that would blend our individual influences and backgrounds,”Jess Brown said.
As a writer for Almo/Universal and EMI, Brown worked primarily in country, folk rock and Americana, writing songs for artists like Lee Ann Womack (A Little Past Little Rock), Trisha Yearwood (I Need You), John Michael Montgomery (Rope The Moon, Cover You In Kisses), Sara Evans (I Learned That From You), Trace Adkins and Julie Roberts (Break Down Here) which the New York Times called “an instant classic.” With more than 25 gold and platinum certifications, inclusion in the Top 100 Road Songs and several Grammy and CMA nominated albums, his songs appear on over 25 million cds.
Hailing from upstate New York, multi-instrumentalist Flint was a founding member and lead guitarist with country rock band, Billy Montana and the Longshots, which led to them being signed to a recording artist deal at Warner Brothers Records with the legendary Martha Sharp, Warner’s VP at the time, in charge of finding new talent. After the country rock band folded, Flint made the move to Nashville and began touring with numerous groups, most notably the hit country rock band Highway 101, touring with them for the next decade before turning his attention to producing and studio session work.
Lonesome Highway Magazine - Dublin, Ireland
"This is hard edged heartland Americana at its finest. Dreamlike songs of unease and unrest play out like chapters from a Daniel Woodrell country noir novel, by a duo not afraid to challenge the tried and trusted. The end result is a hugely rewarding eight-track record, which fuses country rock and folk, with a somewhat left of centre gothic edge."

WEAREYMX - LONDON, ENGLAND
“It’s not often that we come across such gifted musicianship and refined songwriting. Nashville-based alt-country/Americana outfit GLASS CABIN are the exception, exhibiting high-quality tracks with a chart-topping sound and inspired lyrical themes.
Coming together in the creative whirlwind that is Nashville, the pair was able to deliver excellent music, putting them instantly on the map of the most interesting newcomers...crafting charming and poignant musical gems clothed in country formulas and bathed in pop sensibility. GLASS CABIN is your new favourite country group. They are, trust us.”
From Edgar Allan Poets:
"Glass Cabin music is intense and solid. The arrangements are refined and perfect. Artists who have worked a lot in the studio and who have toured instead, are able to leave only the essentials. By doing so the songs take on a particular halo which makes them very fascinating.Their self-titled debut album is fantastic, all the tracks are great, and overall sound product follows a coherent thread. The execution and interpretation are perfect and the production is flawless."

GLASS CABIN CAPTIVATES WITH MASTERFUL ALBUM
...unique when it comes to their Americana sound. Not that country music is completely out of the group's seductively alternative classic rock.
...one of those songs born with the irremediable status of an anthem...with roots riffs blending beautifully with the cohesive instrumental rocker footprint.
...musical intensity can sound simple while simultaneously very well constructed in terms of arrangement. Vocals loaded with emotional intensity enrapture and subliminally lead this great song.
...rootsy blues-rocker loaded with driving emotion and natural passion.
...aspires to 60s intent immersed in the deepest roots of American music, where viscerality once again descends into an irresistible stanza.
...embarks on an intense blues/country hard journey that promotes an overwhelming experience for those who journey to the end. Another track that imposes its strength with classic airs, born with a penchant for absolute rock. The atmosphere of mystery that surrounds each step taken is largely cathartic, it is literally a blockbuster of a song.
...a beautiful ballad of great acoustic content, denoting the simple and emotional side of Glass Cabin. A song that packs a captivating harmonica praising Jess's beautiful vocals.
...unleashes melodic arpeggios in a light neo-soul intent, bringing a pop explosion of vivid colors...impressive as the entire course immerses in our minds. The entire vocal line, together with the poetic verve and melodies of rare inspiration, bring a hit with blazing potential, and that we don't leave inert after the first listen. Sensational.
...valued for a lament of intentions loaded with sensitivity - a closing that gradually moves in epic growth in its propensity.
From Music and Tour News:
