lenn Jones is a talented songwriter/singer/musician/performer with decades of great performing experiences. After 15 years of exile in the northeast wilderness, he’s now back home in his beloved Chapel Hill, NC, writing, singing, collaborating, and currently (March 2016) beginning the process of recording anticipated CD #2, “The Drunkard’s Suite”.
Glenn’s music is hard to classify, but is genuine and gripping. Heartfelt alt-country, with bluesy elements abounding, but the old rock and roller keeps struggling to get out, and often succeeds. Songs about love gained, drinking, love lost, and…drinking. Gigs are fun, with lots of audience sing-along.
In addition to regular solo acoustic original performances, Glenn is a talented electric and upright bassist. Currently doing duty with 8 Track Minds, and with the Well Respected Men (all-star lineup includes former Dbs ace Peter Holsapple, former Sex Police drummer Jody Maxwell, Americana hero Jeff Hart, and Sad Magazine guitarist Andrew Snee). Glenn also fills in for various central NC bands on a regular basis.
He just loves to sing and play.
In fall of 2014 Glenn toured from NC to Texas and back via Memphis and Nashville, and had a blast. Plans are in the works for something similar this fall to celebrate CD 2. Look for him in a city near you.
The new record is in the works and is slated for a September 2016 release. 14 songs of love, loss, hope and redemption. Working title is “The Drunkard’s Suite”. Being produced by Raleigh keyboardist extraordinaire and regular feature film/tv soundtrack composer Jim Crew.
