George Glueck grew up in New York City. In 1975, he went to Berlin, working with music publisher Peter Meisel, who in 1964, founded the first German independent label.
Glueck worked with Falco, Trio, the Rainbirds, Die Prinzen, Inga and Annette Humpe and Rio Reiser. He also was CEO of the record label X-Cell Records and Sing Sing Records. The label X-Cell Records, founded by Glueck in 1998, is now part of Universal Music Group, after being a BMG joint venture partner earlier in 2007.
