Bo Cross Heavy Glow
If there's one thing that can be said about Jared Mullins, singer/songwriter/guitarist for San Diego rock/soul trio Heavy Glow is that he's single minded about the duality he wants to express.
"I've always been drawn to heavily guitar based rock and roll mixed with soul," he says. "Guitar riffs based on Chicago Blues, Delta Blues, even some Motown stuff. The only thing that I really wanted to do with Heavy Glow was keep it in the tradition of bands that try to cover a wide variety of rock 'n' roll subgenres, like Led Zeppelin or Iron Butterfly. Bands where you get the yin-yang, you get the light and the heavy, violent and beautiful at the same time. That's where the band name came from. I wanted to keep it in that tradition."
