Glen Martin wants to sing a few songs for you. Won’t you let him? Hailing originally from the scenic Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Glen is a Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter, and recording artist of the highest caliber. Glen digs deep for his music, drawing from personal experience to offer us lyrics that are both raw and relatable.
Master of science and space, lone wolf, puppet aficionado... Glen Martin plays many roles. But none are executed with as much ease and grace as his music. It’s no wonder; Glen has been collecting and studying records for his entire adult life, analyzing every song, every nuance. For his own music, he draws upon a well of disparate influences, from Hank Williams, Neil young, Bob Dylan and Paul Simon to James Mercer, M. Ward and Jeff Mangum.
Often nostalgic but never derivative, Glen Martin’s sun-kissed Americana radiates originality and passion in every note. His songs are hopeful, silly, sarcastic, catchy and bittersweet.
His latest 5-song EP, Electric Baby, offers listeners a glimpse into the mind and heart of this up-and-coming All American Artist. It’s a beautiful, whisky-soaked ride that’s over all too soon. The EP is on sale now, and you can catch Glen this Fall as he takes his act on the road for his first national tour.
Do yourself a favor: hitch a ride with this urban cowboy as he rides his steel horse on a one-way trip through time, back to the golden age of Pop Music, when melodies mattered and mustaches were required by law. You’ll be glad you did.
