Glen Phillips started his first band, Toad The Wet Sprocket in Santa Barbara at age 15. It was that group’s third album — the jangling, orchestral Fear — that truly broke the group, garnering heavy radio play with the singles “All I Want” and “Walk on the Ocean.” After three years away from the recording studio, Toad returned to the mainstream with Dulcinea, which again found one of its singles, “Fall Down,” in heavy radio rotation. After six albums and a substantial string of hits, the group disbanded in 1998. Phillips began touring as a solo act after Toad the Wet Sprocket’s demise, and has released 5 solo records and two EPs, collaborated on two projects (Mutual Admiration Society and Works Progress Administration), released an EP with Plover (with Neilson Hubbard and Garrison Starr) and an album as RemoteTreeChildren (with Portland’s John Askew).

In 2006, while supporting the Mr. Lemons album, he also toured North American with a reunited Toad the Wet Sprocket. Toad has toured off and on since that time, and in 2011 played 70 shows and decided to begin writing for a new album, to be released late in 2012. Glen is currently at home except for a long weekend of shows each month, and is writing songs for Toad as well as future solo releases. He still lives in Santa Barbara with his wife and three daughters.

    I was attempting to purchase advance tickets to Glen Phillips at Ashland Coffee and Tea scheduled April 3, 2013. He is not listed in the venue to purchase tickets. I checked his website and noted him performing in Norfolk April 4, 2013 but does not list a date for Ashland Coffe and Tea. Has his schedule changed or was the venue cancelled? I would like to get the tickets as far in advance as possible to secure the best seats.

    Thanks for your assistance.

      Hi Frank!
      I just checked Glen’s website and our show is listed. I have sent an email to Music Today to check on the ticket link. It should be added within 24 hours – if this happens in the future, you know you can always cal 804-798-1702 and purchase tickets directly from us. We actually have a smaller handling charge for credit cards than the online service.
      Thanks for bringinging this to our attention,
      Kay Landry

    Will there be an opening act? I may have to be a few minutes late and don’t want to miss Glen!
