The Glimpses are a folk rock/Americana duo based in Alexandria, Virginia. Drawing from traditional folk, blues, country, rock, and jazz, Mercedes Mill and Matthew Leonard create soulful tunes, steeped in haunting melodies and honeyed harmonies. Their paths converged one summer day at a recording studio and they’ve been making music together ever since, captivating audiences with their vibrant songs and dynamic performances.
Their performances are lively and engaging, drawing comparisons to the legendary collaborations of Richard & Linda Thompson, Alison Krauss & Robert Plant, and The Civil Wars. They’ve played at many notable venues and festivals, including the National Cherry Blossom Festival, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Mountville Folk Festival, the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance, Iota Club & Café, Singer Songwriter Cape May, DC9, the Black Potatoe Woodstock Living History Festival, First Night Alexandria, and the DC Green Festival.
