Seven-time Emmy Award winning Music Supervisor/Composer Paul Glass began his career at ABC in 1991, as a part-time music director on the daytime drama LOVING. A year later, Glass was brought onto ONE LIFE TO LIVE to support a new post-production structure and in 1996, was named Music Director of OLTL, where he is responsible for all aspects of music: composing and producing original underscore and music supervision (over 1,000 source placements per year).

Under Glass’ direction OLTL won it’s first EMMY for Music Direction and Composition in 2000. The show also won EMMYs that year for Best Original Song and Sound Mixing for a Drama Series. Since then Glass has won subsequent EMMYs for Music Direction and Composition, as well as composer for Best Original Song (2007), Sound Mixing (2000, 2001) and for Best Directing for Drama Series (2007). In the last 8 years, Glass has over 10 Emmy nominations in the Music Direction and Original Song categories and has also won 4 DGA Awards and 3 BMI TV Music Awards. In 2009 and 2010, Glass was invited to the BILLBOARD/HOLLYWOOD REPORTER FILM & TV MUSIC CONFERENCE, where he participated in panels featuring the industry’s top music supervisors.

During this same period, OLTL has done several landmark musical episodes, including the 2007 four-part PROM NIGHT: the musical. Along with Executive Producer Frank Valentini, this endeavor featured 14 original songs programmed and produced by Glass. The musical garnered 2 EMMYs for Original Song, 1 co-composed by Glass and the soundtrack rose to #4 on ITUNES soundtrack top sales, the week following the broadcast. The cast of the musical also performed live on The View and the critically acclaimed musical became a part of OLTL’s show history. In 2010, OLTL once again created a buzz with another 3 episode musical STARR X’s LOVERS, which included both cover and original songs. Following a subsequent successful soundtrack release, in 2011 Glass was asked to produce another digital album of original songs for ABC, THE SOUND OF A KISS. Both projects delivered substantial sales and landed OLTL in the top 25 once again on the iTUNES charts.

In 2005 Glass produced a cast album of original and cover songs called ONE LIFE MANY VOICES to raise money during the post-Katrina recovery. The proceeds from this foundation continue to nurture the efforts in New Orleans today. During that same year, Glass was featured in the Schirmer publication MUSIC SUPERVISON: The Complete Guide by Ramsay Adams, David Hnatiuk and David Weiss.

Through solid industry contacts and strong production, Paul Glass has made OLTL a destination for music’s top performers which have included MARY J. BLIGE (2X), NELLY FURTADO, LIFEHOUSE (2X), SNOOP DOGG (2X), SIMPLY RED, ERYKAH BADU, LIONEL RICHIE, TIMBALAND, KERI HILSON, ONE REPUBLIC, PUSSYCAT DOLLS, ALL-AMERICAN REJECTS, PLAIN WHITE Ts, RACHAEL YAMAGATA and CHRIS BOTTI, among others.
