I met the youthful guitarist, Benjamin Clare on a cold autumn night a couple of years ago when he wanted to play me some demos of his band, Glassheads. I remember sitting in the studio and being struck by the tightness and musical prowess of such a young collective.
Having heard two or three tracks, one of them stood out as a great commercial tune. I immediately offered my production services which he accepted and he
commissioned me to produce the single, ‘White Flag’.
Following our first meeting, we ended up in a great studio in Leeds where we laid down the song and I was equally impressed by the talents of the band.
From Leeds we took the stems back to my studio in Cheshire to complete some overdubs and the mixing process with my sound engineer, Mark Walker.
I always use a fantastic mastering engineer at Abbey Road Studios called Alex Wharton and he did a amazing job … let the rest be history!
This is a band to watch out for in the future and can only get better and better.
Composer / Producer.

Glassheads are a British rock band from Leeds composed of Connor Ludnow (Vocals, Rhythm Guitar ), Noah Clare (Lead Guitarist, Backing Vocals), Layth Ibrahim (Bass Guitar) and Tam Nusane (Drums). Currently signed to Doodlebox Records. Glassheads are currently in the process of releasing their debut single ‘White Flag’.
‘White Flag’ is in its essence a reaction to the separation of Noah Clare’s (Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals) parents. Finding himself on the battle ground between the two people he trusts most led him to new and unchartered emotional territories. White Flag encapsulates the feeling of anxiety and the desperation for peace and longing for belonging that had been lost. It is a call for peace.
Drawing inspiration from the pop/rock bands of their youth such as Thirty-Seconds To Mars , Radiohead and The Killers, Glassheads have carved out an inherently new sound. Hard-hitting, anthemic chorus’s and loud guitars fill every venue they play, always leaving audiences wanting more. Combining their love for the music of their teen years with the more modern sound of Nothing But Thieves and Muse, Glasssheads have carved out a distinctive and emotive sound of their own. Their high energy appearance on stage is infectious and honest, giving their fans a true and honest representation of who they are and what Glassheads is all about.
