On Friday 4th November 2016, Frontiers Music Srl released the critically acclaimed 12th original GLENN HUGHES album Resonate.
A true vocal and musical icon of our times, in the past couple of years Glenn concentrated again on his solo career. Sold out crowds were the order of the day, while touring non-stop throughout 2015, with shows in South America, Europe, UK, Japan and Singapore.
In 2015 the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame announced that Deep Purple including MKIII, were to be inducted after several previous nominations over the years - a culmination of a 40+ years career which saw Glenn leave his indelible mark in several musical endeavours and bands, including Trapeze, Deep Purple, Hughes/Thrall, his collaborations with Gary Moore, Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi and most recently with Black Country Communion and California Breed.
2016 is proved to be Glenn’s busiest year yet. With summer festivals and solo shows in the USA, UK and Europe. With Resonate, Glenn released his first solo album in over eight years. Resonate is truly a triumphant return to form for The Voice of Rock.
From album opener, "Heavy", to the very last chords of the closer, "Long Time Gone", it promises to be a contender for 'Album of the Year'. It features his live solo band members, Soren Andersen (guitars and co-producer), Pontus Engborg (drums) and newcomer to his band, Lachy Doley (keyboards), in addition to long-time friend and drummer, Chad Smith (of Red Hot Chili Peppers), who joined them in the studio for the opening and closing numbers.
It might well be the most heavy sounding of his solo albums, but as is his trademark, musical diversity shines through and as Glenn commented upon completion of the new recording, "this album is the first kind of a complete Glenn Hughes album".
No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. That astonishing voice is Hughes' calling card and the new album, “Resonate” will shine as a true Glenn Hughes landmark release.
Make no mistake. The Voice of Rock never left the building!

Glenn Hughes - Biography
Vocalist/bass guitarist/songwriter Glenn Hughes is a true original. No other rock musician has carved such a distinctive style blending the finest elements of hard rock, soul and funk. Stevie Wonder once called Hughes his favorite white singer.
The first important band Hughes was a member of that achieved notable success was Trapeze. In 1973, Hughes joined Deep Purple. The trailblazing hard-rock legends had just weathered the departure of vocalist Ian Gillan and bass guitarist Roger Glover, but guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, keyboardist Jon Lord and drummer Ian Paice continued with the addition of Hughes and David Coverdale.
Since 1992, Hughes has toured extensively in Europe, Japan and South America in support of solo albums, but more recently has been involved with award winning supergroups’, Black Country Communion with guitar star Joe Bonamassa, keyboard player Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater) and drummer Jason Bonham, son of the late Led Zeppelin legend John Bonham and California Breed, who also featured both Hughes and drummer Jason Bonham.
Glenn Hughes was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the Mark III line up of Deep Purple. He spent key years of his career as the beloved bassist and vocalist of the group, recording on the classic albums: Burn, Stormbringer, and Come Taste The Band. Hughes and other members of Deep Purple were in attendance to receive the honor.
Glenn’s 12th studio album, and his first album in eigh years, Resonate was released on 4th November 2016 to great critical acclaim and hit #6 in the Official UK Rock Album Chart.
"My personal connection with my fans while on tour and via the socials networks, daily, is an honour."
