Gregory Scott Glasson (born December 6, 1974) is an American bass player. He has played bass for Grammy Award winning artist Seal both live onstage and in studio recordings.[1] Glasson is also widely known as a solid session player, and has been featured on numerous albums, for a variety of artists. Mostly sought after in the Pop rock field, Glasson has played on major label tracks for artists such as Seal, Alanis Morissette and producer Josh Harris.[2]

Born in Princeton, New Jersey, Glasson grew up in Pennington, New Jersey and graduated from Hopewell Valley Central High School. At the age 19 he was on the road playing with 90's roots rock act Dear Liza opening for Blues Traveler[3] on their multiplatinum Four tour, as well as extensive tours with Derek Trucks Band and a handful of dates on the traveling 90's festival H.O.R.D.E.[4]

A decade of touring and recording led to him becoming a seasoned session player. Studio work on Seal's "The Right Life" and Alanis Morissette's "Underneath" single have secured his position as a sought after session and touring bassist.[5]
