Fee Range: D

Glenn Shorrock migrated from Kent, England at age ten. He was one of the new arrivals that changed the face of Adelaide's live music scene. It became hip with the styles and sounds of the British wave.

Formerly of The Twilights, then of Little River Band, Glenn's song-writing credits include international hits, 'Help Is On Its Way', 'Home On Monday', co-written with Beeb Birtles, and 'My Own Way Home', co-written with Brain Cadd.

Leaving Little River Band in 1982, Glenn was replaced by John Farnham. He rejoined the band in 1988. Glenn was inducted into the ARIA Hall of fame in 1991.

In 1998, he finished the year on stage with Eric Burdon and Thelma Houston in 'British Rock Symphony' performing the hits of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones and The Who.

With a career spanning over 35 years, Glenn Shorrock is one of the elder statesmen of Australian contemporary show business. Little River Band has sold in excess of 25 million albums.
