Glenn Sulley
Glenn Sulley
Glenn Sulley was born and raised in Newfoundland, an island located on the eastern coast of Canada. His musical roots stem from both of his parents, his mother was a singer and his father played guitar. As a young boy, he sang in church and in his grade school choir. It wasn’t until ninth grade, that he got interested in learning to play the guitar and writing songs. “My father taught me two chords, and in a short time, I managed to teach myself the rest.”

As a teenager, he was lead singer for several pop and rock and roll bands, and acted and sang in various musical theater shows. As a young adult, he toured and recorded with an Irish Celtic band, “The Clancy’s.” He also performed solo gigs throughout eastern and central Canada. He has performed the “Star Spangled Banner” on national T.V. for the NBA, NHL, and the (WTA) Women’s Tennis Association. He has written and performed several radio and T.V. commercial jingles, both in Canada and throughout Oklahoma. He has won two “Silver Mike” awards for local (Oklahoma) and national jingle work, received “honorable mention” in two national songwriting contests, and many of his original compositions have been performed and recorded by various musicians, both in the U.S. and Canada. Recently, one of his original songs was published in “Chalice Praise”, a contemporary Christian songbook. Several of his original songs, also appear on a compilation he recorded with local Christian band, "Walking Temple."

He is currently the “band/worship leader” for the contemporary service at First Christian Church in Edmond.

He lives in Oklahoma City, with his two sons, Colton and Cooper. Glenn is a graduate of Southern Nazarene University and is employed at OU Physicians.

His most recent project was a recording of original music, titled, “Glory Road.” He recorded this CD with his music partner, David Sisson. Glenn and David currently perform as a duo at venues within the Oklahoma City area.

Glenn really enjoys singing at the Opry, and especially has a “blast”, when he occasionally performs with his “musical buddy”, Marty Summers.

After college, Jillian began work in the field of Emergency Management and now works as the Emergency Manager for Devon Energy in Oklahoma City supporting U.S. Operations.

Jillian has restored her love for music by singing at The Centennial Rodeo Opry in Oklahoma City and turning the duo, Sulley & Sisson into a trio.
