Glen Ricketts, known in the R&B world as Glenn Lewis, was born in 1975 in Toronto, Ontario. Born to a Trinidadian mother and a Jamaican father, Lewis finds some of musical heritage from his father, who was a member of the group Crack of Dawn. From the ages of 8 to 14, Glenn Lewis lived in Trinidad.
At 14, Glenn moved back to Toronto, where he attended Eastern Commerce Collegiate. At the high school, he won a talent contest with his cover of Stevie Wonder's "I Just Called to Say I Love You," and continues to receive comparison to Stevie Wonder to this day.
Following high school, Glenn Lewis worked the city, recording demos and performing at nightclubs. He released two singles "The Thing To Do" and "Bout Your Love," during this time, with the former winning a Juno Award.
Thanks to these releases, Mark Byers of Rock Star Entertainment heard about Glenn Lewis and helped him connect with Epic Records. At Epic, Glenn was able to team up with Andre Harris and Vidal Davis, who worked with him on his debut, World Outside My Window. Released in 2002, the album featured the single "Don't You Forget It" which reached #10 on the R&B charts and #30 on the Hot 100. As a meeting of the minds, Glenn Lewis actually had the chance to meet with Stevie Wonder on a Los Angeles radio station where Wonder sang Lewis's "Don't You Forget It." The album's other single, "It's Not Fair" reached #90 on the R&B charts.
In 2003, Lewis made his second album, Back For More. While the album's title track was released as a single and reached #76 on the R&B charts, the album was pulled back. It never saw release and Glenn Lewis left Epic in 2005.
He moved to Underdog Entertainment, where he developed his third album, Remember Me. Remember Me is set to release in 2008.
Today, Glenn Lewis lives in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with his kids Tabias and Xavier.
