Band

 

Stuart North – Vocals & Guitars

 

 

History

Stu likes to crank his Marshall up and make as much noise as possible. He loves the fact that he can meet up with his pals and rock out, “Rocking out with my buddies is what I do best.” 

Stu has been in and out of bands for as long as he can remember, and has had moderate success with early 0′s band Little Spitfire. “I loved playing in that band, we did some cool things together.”

Future

“Being in The Glass Hearts is so easy, we all hit it off immediately and found a lot of common ground musically and personally, which is so important. I could not be in a band that just turns up and plays, then strolls off to do whatever. We are a tight unit, like a brotherhood. I’m looking forward to the future and seeing where we can take this show.”

About

Stu is into all things that rock. His influences are: Green Day, Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World, The Quireboys, Nirvana, Alice In Chains, Feeder, Guns & Roses.

“Anything that makes you want to nod your head.”

Gear

“It was loud, fast & rocking and we hit it off immediately, and it was great fun so, what could I do but join the F***ers!!”
