Glass America biography
Glass America was founded in 2008 in Wenham, Massachusetts, with a vision of rejecting the formulaic structures and textures that typify much of Post-rock. Members John Mirisola, Micah Wilson, Michael Foye, and Jared Deame wanted to create an original sound that encapsulated the best of ambient, instrumental music without succumbing to its clichés or being limited by what has come to be expected.

"We try to limit the use of vocals because lyrics often times dictate to the listener how they're supposed to feel," says guitarist and lead vocalist, Jared Deame. "I think that one of the most important aspects of good art is engaging the listener to the point where they will have a very difficult time taking a passive role in the process."

Glass America signed with Boston-based Driven Records in 2008 and has recently released their debut album, Redivivus, on the label. The record focuses on hope in the midst of darkness and pain. Says guitarist John Mirisola, "The biggest theme to the album, and indeed, the biggest theme in any of our lives, is that there is hope, whatever the circumstance. There is a major chord, even after a whole song in a minor key." Redivivus crystallizes the band's first year together and points in the direction of their future.

Band's line-up (2010):
John Mirisola: Guitar, glockenspiel, vocals
Micah Wilson: Drums
Jared Deame: Guitar, vocals, piano
Mike Foye: Guitar
Rafaell Rozendo: Bass
