Glory B is a funk-train loaded with explosive grooves, a strange hybrid of cabaret jazz and blues that has escaped quarantine and is bearing down on rock and roll like an ever-mutating alien virus. Led by pianist, vocalist and songwriter Bryson Mulholland the band features Daniel Brates on the drum set and Mimmo Panunzio on bass. Bryson is himself a strange, quivering beast, born of a piano’s unnatural mating with George Clinton’s best platform boots. Cabaret is his chief vice, and in public he conducts tests banned under international conventions, just to taste the temperament of the post-Tom Waits world. Working exclusively with producer Christian Pyle, Glory B has released three studio albums, Standing at the Door (2018), Sex Party (2012) and Puppies of Steel (2008) through SS Prawn and Spanner Records.
