Halem Albright (guitarist, vocalist, songwriter) was born and raised in Atlanta, Ga. Brought up among music lovers, he began to show an early interest in music. Halem started playing guitar and writing music at 14, with influences ranging from Jerry Garcia & Frank Zappa to the jazz and reggae greats.
He joined the group “Bandole” at 17, helping to complete the band’s sound with his unique, improvisational guitar playing and imaginative yet catchy songwriting. This group recorded the album, “Mountain Ate The Sun” in 1997 and played numerous shows throughout the southeast from ‘97-’99.

Accomplishments of “The G.L.C.” include winning the Athens music award for “best jamband 2005.” With his 11-song original demo, in which all instruments and vocals were recorded by Albright and a debut album in the works, Halem shows just a glimpse into his capabilities and artistic vision as he welcomes the opportunities that are offered by the music industry.
