Born in England, Glenn migrated at the age of 10 to Adelaide in the 1950’s. A self-confessed child of rock & roll, he began singing in 1962 with a vocal group called ‘The Twilights’. By 1965, The Twilights became a six-piece beat group based in Melbourne scoring hits with ‘Needle In A Haystack’, ‘Cathy Come Home’ and ‘Young Girl’, before disbanding in 1969. ‘Axiom’ with Brian Cadd followed shortly thereafter, with hits including ‘Arkansas Grass’ and ‘Little Ray of Sunshine’. Shorrock moved to London in 1970 and worked as a session singer and songwriter with other ex-pats and Europeans in a twelve-piece rock orchestra named ‘Esperanto’.
In late 1974, Shorrock returned to Melbourne to help form ‘Little River Band’ as the lead singer. Managed by long-time friend Glenn Wheatley, the band cracked the lucrative United States market in 1976, and began a string of eight Top Ten Hits around the world. The band has sold in excess of 25 million albums, often being credited for opening the door for many Australian acts on the international circuit. Shorrock’s song writing credits include the international hits ‘Help Is On Its Way’, ‘Home On Monday’ ‘Shut Down Turn Off’, ‘My Own Way Home’ and ‘Cool Change’.
Shorrock’s credentials extend to all fields of show business, notably in theatre and cabaret, where he has performed in many successful productions. He continues to work regularly with contemporaries including Doug Parkinson and Brian Cadd, and also loves to be at sea, selectively choosing to cruise with his band several times a year. Shorrock regularly performs on behalf of various charities and continues as an ambassador for Variety.
“I have been blessed with a long and successful career and I'm doing some of my best work right at the moment” says Glenn who intends to begin work on his autobiography after a good lie down!
