NPR Host’s Musical Namesake Cherry Glazerr Rolls On

'I'm Chery Glaser, and believe it or not, this is also Cherry Glazerr...'

Earlier this year, Chery Glaser (pictured), the Los Angeles-embedded local host of NPR’s Morning Edition on KCRW, interviewed members of a local rock trio that named themselves after her. She began the conversation by throwing to a song from the band with: “I’m Chery Glaser, and believe it or not, this is also Cherry Glazerr…”

Nine months later, per a pair of items by L.A. Times reporter Todd Martens, things are rolling along for the teenage band consisting of Clementine Creevy, Hannah Uribe and Sean Redman:

Creevy has been managing the band herself and says the group is self-sufficient enough that she can afford to move out when she turns 18, though she intends to live at home and save money.

This month, Cherry Glazerr can be heard in the trailer for Insidious: Chapter 3, for which the band recorded a rendition of “Tiptoe Through the Tulips.” The fashion industry already beat Hollywood to the group as Cherry Glazerr songs have scored Yves Saint Laurent videos and shows — with some edits. The group is amused, for instance, that its lyrical slam directed toward Rob Kardashian was spliced out of “Teenage Girl” by Saint Laurent (the song describes him as a “tool”).

Tomorrow night in dowtown Los Angeles, Cherry Glazerr will open at The Belasco for Sky Ferreira. And who knows? Maybe some day in the not-too-distant future, they will cross paths with a group called The Lakshmis Sing.
