A two man team in the studio, Glorious Monster is Danny Burke (electronic musician / pianist) and Brian Casey (vocalist / guitarist), who met while studying music at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. In the spring of 2005 they formed their music production company, Skeptic Music, and started making a name for themselves as the production team, The Skeptics. They have written and produced music used in national TV ads for brands such as BMW and Coke, the movie trailers for Rescue Dawn and The Curse of the Golden Flower, and the theme to MTV's Parental Control. They have also worked on scores for several short and feature length films. Recently, Glorious Monster's music has been featured on episodes of MTV's The Hills and Real World.

Since 2005, Josiah Wordsworth has been dazzling listeners with a refreshingly new sound that is taking audiences by storm. The sound lies somewhere in the realms of jazz, classical and rock; however, cannot claim itself to be anyone in particular. Josiah Wordsworth live is a jaw-dropping experience that routinely leaves listeners in shock and awe, leaving the audience a performance to never be forgotten. The 2007 debut EP "Blue State" made a stunning splash on the radio, receiving airplay on 180 CMJ affiliated radio stations, chart ing in the Top 10 in many markets for multiple weeks. In addition to the radio success of "Blue State", the album EP has been recently licensed to various TV networks, such as MTV, Oxygen, and Lifetime. April 2008 will mark the landing of the debut full-length LP, aptly titled "Wordsworth!", which is a monsoon of fresh air for all music lovers.
