Glenn was born in very small Illinois town in the year of our Lord 1967. 2 years later the family loaded up the 1950 studebaker pickup and took him to God's land where the country raising began. Pryor Oklahoma was the place he was brought up and lived the next chapter of his life. Glenn spent his childhood working for his dad in
the bodyshop, going to church or wrestling. It was always one of those 3 things. Music entered into the scene during the church days.
Graduating from high school in 1985 he had 2 scholarship choices, singing, or wrestling. Glenn didn't want to be a sissy singer so he chose wrestling. The wrestling career lasted 1 year and 3 shoulder separations.
Not long after that, Glenn married and started life. He Joined the Army National Guard in July, 1988. Working full time left little room for outside pleasures. In November 15, 1990 he received the call! Time to pack up and go to war! Desert Storm!
While serving as a Fire Direction Sargent in Iraq, Glenn had a lot of time to think. Upon returning home, he quit his job and went into business with his father. MUSIC was never far from his heart.
Many years had gone by since he seriously sang but practice and perseverance had always been part of his life. It was no different now. Glenn went to Nashville to learn from the masters! It wasn't long before The Heirborn Quartet was born.
Glenn spent about 10 years performing all over the Midwest with 3 other great guys. They built friendships, touched hearts and enjoyed the journey but just like in a lot of stories, hard times hit. He found himself in marital problems in 2004 and that was the end of his singing career.... or so he thought.
16 years later, sitting in a restaurant on Fort Lauderdale beach, Glenn found himself enjoying live music again. While listening to a local cover band called Sippin' Fire, he was singing his butt off and pretty well making a fool out of himself when the lead singer came over and handed him her microphone. That was the spark that has turned into a Full Fledged Fire!
Just 2 years later The Glenn Baker Band was born! Finding some of the best musicians South Florida has to offer the dream took form. is rolling full force down the tracks like a steam engine.
Glenn took 2 trips to Nashville, recorded 5 original songs and the breakout music video "Freedom!"
