Les Glover has been entertaining and playing music for 40 years, performing all over the UK and across Europe and appearing in several TV and dozens of radio shows.
His career started in St Helens and Liverpool in 1979-80, playing at the now legendary Eric’s club with his first band Red Line. Red Line disbanded after a number of impressive support slots (Wreckless Eric, A Flock Of Seagulls, The Chameleons) and a couple of national TV appearances.
He has played and sang with many top acts including Graham Gouldman (10cc), Ian McNabb, Nick Harper, James Burton (Elvis), John Reilly (Boy on a Dolphin) and for the last ten years has been the musical sparring partner of Henry Priestman (Yachts, It's Immaterial, The Christians). His first album, The Love Terrorist, was released in 2015 and in 2017, a collaboration with Priestman entitled Six of One & Half a Dozen of the Other, was released to glowing reviews and a number 13 position in the Mojo playlist chart.
Mark Kermode (BBC 5live), who guest stars on the album, described it as “…a thing of beauty”.
In 2018, he recorded a single for the Music Minds Charity along with a host of other musicians including, Steve Nieve (Elvis Costello), Mari Wilson, Thomas Lang, Philip Rambow, Pete Riley and Henry Priestman. Les' song "Hank and Me" is also featured on the album, which was released as part of a mental health awareness campaign.
He is the lead singer and guitarist in Don Powell's Occasional Flames and has produced two albums with the Slade drummer, each charting in both the iTunes and Amazon download charts. Their single “I Won’t Be Playing Wonderwall Tonight” reached number 3 on Mike Read's Heritage Chart and number 5 on the 365 radio Legacy Chartbreakers, with the video being shown regularly on the Heritage Chart TV show across the UK and mainland Europe.
