A self-confessed child of rock n roll, Glenn Shorrock began singing in 1962 with a vocal group called the Twilights. Axiom with Brian Cadd followed shortly thereafter. Late 1974, Glenn returned to Melbourne to help form Little River Band as lead singer. Managed by long-time friend, Glenn Wheatley, Little River Band cracked the lucrative United States market in 1976, and began a string of eight Top Ten Hits in the U.S.A. and around the world. The band has sold in excess of 25 million albums, often being credited for opening the door for many Australian acts on the international circuit. In 1995, Glenn fronted Little River Band during their 20th year anniversary, three and a half-month tour of the United States. His songwriting credits include the international hits Help is on its Way, Emma, Home on Monday, Long Jumping Jeweler, Shut Down Turn Off, My Own Way Home and Cool Change.

Glenn continues to work regularly with contemporaries including Doug Parkinson, Wendy Matthews and Brian Cadd. As a testament to his enduring talent he has been twice inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame first in 1991 in his own right and again with The Little River Band in 2004. In 2016 Glenn released his first album in many years, “Rise Again”, a collection of songs composed by himself and a few friends. This new solo album offers a mix of folk-rock and easy listening tracks.
