"GLAD formed on the campus of West Chester State University of Pennsylvania when singer Ed Nalle auditioned for a new Christian band. Nalle would write and produce much of GLAD's early material in addition to his role as lead vocalist. The other members (from Temple University in Philadelphia) were Bob Kauflin (keyboards, vocals), T. Coble (bass, vocals), John Bolles (guitar, vocals), and Brad Curry (drums). The group's name was chosen from a poll taken at a shopping mall. Playing over 200 dates annually at college campuses, churches and concert halls throughout the United States, GLAD released their first two albums on Myrrh Records in 1978 and 1980. GLAD, their debut album, was enthusiastically received by young Christian music lovers interested in a gospel message presented with artistry and conviction."
Glad began as progressive rock, and before their transformation to a CCM/Pop/A-capella group, they changed over time to just a rock band.
**NOTE TO VAULT MANAGERS**
Please do not add Glad albums after 1987's "Who Do You Love?" because the group took on a combined a-capella/CCM approach & were/are no longer rock.
