Hailing from the North of England, Gloria are a chameleonic five piece crafting rock and roll like you’ve never heard before. Taking inspiration from the likes of Led Zeppelin, Queen, Pink Floyd & Bowie, with melodic and lyrical influence from Stevie Wonder, Frank Ocean, Paul McCartney & Billy Joel, Gloria combine these inspirations to create a wholly unique sound.

Gloria began as a high school friendship. A three piece outfit emerged in Lancaster releasing early singles Gloria and Dogma in 2019 with the first of the two amassing over 190,000 streams. A short while after they entered a local talent competition with a prize of a headline slot at Lancaster Music festival which they won. Off the back of these early successes, Gloria signed a recording contract with FEAR Records leading to the release of their debut EP ‘Looking Forwards Looking Back’ in 2021. At the time Gloria set out on their first UK tour playing venues further afield such as Leeds and Newcastle culminating with a sold out headline show at the Eagle Inn in Manchester.
After a change of lineup post pandemic, growing the original three piece into a five piece, Gloria return enriched with a wider and bolder sonic palette. The first outing for the new lineup involved filming a set for SKY TVs ‘Live From the Edge’ and with the announcement of the band supporting Bayboards at Manchester’s Deaf Institute on the 11th of September, the band is set to take the scene by storm.
