She is signed with the 9 Lives Record Label. In February of this year she formed her Band "Glo & Embers" with the Members:
Gloria (Glo) Smith - Vocals
Phil Osborne - Lead guitar - Back-up Vocals.
She hails from Ashland, KY and is in good company. This is the home town of singers such as The Judds.
Glo’s genre of music is mostly Blues/Rock. She is known for her husky throated Bluesy Melissa Etheridge-esque vocals.
Glo started out writing and publishing poetry as a young girl but always loved to sing her poetry before she wrote it. She still writes poetry prolifically.
Recently she decided to share her love of music with others, and to leave a legacy of song not only for those close to her but for anyone who truly loves music itself.
There was no greater way she could think of to love others, than to give herself to them in song. To Glo sharing the pure magic of touching another human heart with the gentle caress of music is an honor and a privilege.
She has been singing all her life and it is the ultimate joy of her life; a joy that has overflowed into the desire she now has to gift her music; which is her soul itself, along with her love of life to the world at large.
Glo has said, “How can ones heart hold such a love of music and not share it? It is my passion and my obsession.”
Glo loves to laugh and enjoy her life. As she says, "Both laughter and sadness produce tears but laughter also produces life... let’s live and sing about the journey!”
The Sands of Time
© Gloria Smith 2010
One night the stars fell into her eyes
She suddenly knew that it was time to fly
Time to sing of the pain within her soul
Time to know that she really could be whole
And so she sang a little before she died
And she cried a little as she sang her life
The Angels tilted an ear toward the Earth
And sighed as they tried to hold back
The sands of time...
