In March 2017, Brandon Archer and Ryan Mitchell were introduced by Jesse Gomez. Within two weeks, the duo had written what would become their first EP Cherish You and officially formed Glow. Glow met as a group twice before going to Earlygrayce Studio in Louisville, KY to record their debut EP with producer Jordan Haynes (Artifex Pereo).
For the production of the EP, Glow was able to secure a guest appearance of Bradley Walden of Emarosa, in addition to the mastering services of Kris Crummett. All six of the songs on Cherish You were written from an emotionally vulnerable place, and revolve around a message of empathy and acceptance.
Their sophomore EP Cope was produced by the same duo and released on January 3, 2020.
