Discovered in the summer of 1984 when a band from Newmarket, Ontario called Tokyo spent two evenings performing before capacity crowds at Toronto's Maple Leaf Gardens opening for Boy George and Culture Club. Their dynamic original sound captured the moment, and the race to sign them was on. Tokyo, which had become a major force in suburban high schools and the Ontario club circuit, officially became Glass Tiger early the following year when a record deal was finally signed with Capitol Records.

With Jim Vallance (Bryan Adams; Aerosmith; Ozzy Osbourne) behind the boards Glass Tiger was immediately introduced to the recording studio to work on their first album. The Thin Red Line set a record for being the fastest selling debut recording in Canadian history, going gold within weeks of its release. To date, this album has received four Platinum records in Canada and went Gold in the United States. One of Glass Tiger’s many hit singles “Don’t Forget Me (When I’m Gone)” yielded a #2 spot on Billboard that was followed by “Someday” which reached #5. Both songs also made Canadian history when Glass Tiger won successive Juno's a year apart for Single of the Year from the same album.

With five Juno awards and a Grammy nomination under their belt, Glass Tiger was invited as the “Special Guests” for Tina Turner’s 1987 European tour.

Glass Tiger’s second release Diamond Sun, and third album, Simple Mission, solidified their reputation as being one of Canada’s best song crafters. Diamond Sun sported four charting singles: “Diamond Sun,” “I’m Still Searching,” “My Song,” and “(Watching) Worlds Crumble,” achieving Double Platinum status; while Simple Mission went Platinum, with “Animal Heart”, and the notable Celtic duet classic, "My Town", which features the legendary Rod Stewart.

With such a colourful past - world tours, hit singles, millions sold, top producers, and sharing stages with some of the biggest acts of all time, Glass Tiger’s history would seem complete. However outside of a short hiatus during the mid 90’s Glass Tiger continues to play to enthusiastic crowds throughout North America.
“Our performances have never been tighter, and we are playing at our highest level ever, we are re-ignited, recharged and looking forward to every show." Says lead singer Alan Frew.
