“Musician, songwriter, composer, producer, photographer- [Glasgow] is the genius behind Strange Fangs Song Factory…running the gamut from classical to hip-hop, jazz and blues to electronica and rap, he moves easily from the dark and haunting to the soaring and serene. Perhaps the most multifaceted musician I have ever encountered.”
(The Creative Genius of Jim Glasgow, Feb 2017)
“The first time I ever asked Jim to score one of my films, he was so excited about the movie he sent me a rough draft the next day. He takes each project to heart, which always results in a truly unique score that fits the film’s style perfectly. He also thrives on honest critique, making the end product consistently even better than what I was looking for.”

"Composer James Wright Glasgow creates atmospheric, eerie, and haunting pieces that act in conversation with poet Mario Moroni’s pieces. The music in this show is incredibly modern and inventive; the use of piano, electric cello and looping pedal is a particularly experimental and capturing aspect of the performance. One piece that stands out is a section dealing with reflections, one such poem revolving around the aspect of time. The music is original and operatic, the dramatic reading striking and rhythmic with the tick-tock of a clock, and the floating-word projects a powerful and fitting addition to the entire piece."
(Edinburgh Fringe Festival Review, Aug 2018)
"It has been awe-inspiring to collaborate and work with James...His original music adds an emotional layer to an already delicate subject. He does it with an honesty and vulnerability that is heartbreaking and yet hopeful at the same time."
"I truly believe that [Song Factory] saved my client's life."

"It was a beautiful performance; the music was so moving."
"Magical, emotional, so brilliantly done."
"I barfed tears."
"As an original work, 'Forget Me Not' deserves respect. The choreography is consistently interesting, and the score by Glasgow is a melodic and haunting one that effectively mixes somber and jazzy moments. Taken together, they create some striking moments."
"Working with Jim was both inspiring and stress-free. His cast talent, ability to navigate and deliver the desired tone of music, and reliable turnaround rate made the process of scoring a short film exponentially easier and more fun. Hearing his music paired with my film brought it all together seamlessly. I still get his song stuck in my head - it's seriously catchy!"

"Strange Fangs Song Factory was prompt, decisive, and a pleasure to work with. After laying out my needs for the project, James got straight to work. He finished my project well within the due date and it came out awesome. I give SFSF a 10/10 for the all-around experience in getting a musical score made up!"

"Jim has a feel for what will sonically work best with the image. I have worked with him twice and both times he has accentuated the soul of the film with both touching and vibrant pieces."
