A Valentine for Carole

I made a video valentine for my wife Carole this year, and I decided to share it here on my Blog. It was so much fun to create because it brought back so many memories and reminders of how lucky I am that she decided to share her life with me. I can only imagine the barren landscape my life would have been had she not been a part of it.

Cover photoIn North America today almost half of marriages end in divorce, and sometimes that’s the only ending that makes any sense. But sometimes too, with a little effort, you can get past the rough spots. I hope our story will be an inspiration for people to take a little time to appreciate their partners on Valentine’s Day.

Dropped the album last Friday, dude.

So, I dropped the album last friday. My buddy Jim, who I consider the ultimate authority on all things musical, says the proper parlance for real musicians these days is to say you “dropped” an album. So, last week when I said I released my album… well, I guess misspoke.

Donald GlennReal musicians don’t say “released” anymore, Jim says. They also don’t say “launched” or “put out” or “delivered” or any of those things. They say “dropped” and if you can add the word “man” or “dude” to the end of the sentence, well that just makes it even better.

So I dropped my album last Friday… dude.

You can pick it up or stream it anywhere, but here’s some of my favourite spots…

It seems a little surreal to be finally letting it go. I guess it would be fair to say that it’s been a long time coming. I actually wrote part of one of the songs, Starting Out, more than 40 years ago. Others like Slipping Away and Don’t You Ever Wonder Why first saw the light of day in the early 90s.

And then there’s Away You Go Flying, which I wrote a few days before the end of 2019. I actually had the whole album ready to go when that song first started percolating in my brain. I thought it might be a good one, and I decided to delay the album release so I could add it. I laid down the vocal and guitar as a single track, and then I added drums and other percussion, a complicated bass line and I started experimenting with a fiddle melody. But then I thought, no. It should just be the original vocal-guitar track. It’s more honest that way. More authentic. And what could be more authentic or honest than a song about your dead Mother?

Anyway, it’s coming out Friday. I’ll post again after the release with links to samples etc. Hope you like it.
