History[edit]

Windowpane was formed in Cumberland, Maryland by high school friends Glenn Cannon and Tony Harris; they briefly moved to Orlando, Florida, before relocating to Seattle.[1].[2] As of 2015, they have sold over 10,000 albums, even though they are not signed to a record label.[3]

In 2001, Windowpane released their debut album Push, which was recorded at London Bridge Studios, and produced by Brett Eliason. In 2006, they released the album, the Silence. Brett Eliason returned in 2008 to produce the album Daybreak. The band appeared on New Day Northwest, a talk show hosted by Margaret Larson on KING--TV to promote the release of Daybreak.[4] In the fall of 2011, they supported Queensryche on a national tour, and in 2012, they toured as a supporting act for Five Finger Death Punch.[5][6]. In 2016, the album Windowpane was released.[1]

There is No Such Thing as the Record Store Fairy, a documentary about Windowpane was introduced in 2016.[7] Windowpane also released a video for the song, House of Cards. At a show to celebrate the release of the video, they were joined onstage by Michael Wilton and Eddie Jackson of Queensryche, as well as vocalist Pamela Moore.[5]

Original bassist Mark Harris and drummer Sean Morrison left the band in 2017 & 2018 respectively, both wanting to devote more time to family. Harris's replacement was Christon Casper.[8]. In 2018, Noah Phipps became Windowpane's new drummer.[9]

In 2018, Windowpane made a return appearance on New Day NorthWest, to voice their support for the preservation of the Showbox music venue; which was purchased by a developer and slated to be demolished, so that condominiums can be built on the site.[10]
