Glenn Stafford is an American music composer for Blizzard Entertainment. He has worked with the company for several years and is the director of the audio department.

The majority of music he has composed was most likely in Warcraft II. Once Warcraft III became into production, Blizzard hired more music composers, thus the only song which has evidence that he made is the new Human expansion track.
