Biography

Glenn Milchem /Blue Rodeo, The Swallows/

Glenn Milchem cut his teeth playing drums with numerous bands based around Toronto’s Queen Street scene from the early 80’s to the early 90’s. Some of the artists he played and recorded with during this period include Vital Sines, The Garbageman, Whitenoise, Groovey Religion, The Plasterscene Replicas, Andrew Cash, Change of Heart and Andy Curnew.

In December ‘91 Glenn was asked to join Blue Rodeo, another Queen Street band who had quickly outgrown their local beginnings to go on to national success. Glenn has remained a member for thirteen years. In the meantime he’s continued to play with other bands, including his twin brother John’s band Starvin’ Hungry, The Remains of Brian Borcherdt, Holy Fuck, Luke Doucet and many others.

Throughout Glenn’s career as a drummer he wrote his own songs on guitar, planning to start a project of his own one day. By 1997 Glenn finally felt he had a batch of songs strong enough to record and release. He decided to call the project “the Swallows,” though he didn’t have a band yet, and intended to play most of the instruments himself. He began recording at Toronto’s Chemical Sound with engineer Al Miller, and guest contributor’s Anne Bourne, Ian Blurton and Rich Brown.
