Glenn Galen's music is different from 99% of what you hear today in pop music.
Just listen to the *VARIETY* on this page....
His music is about great melody, and delightful, surprising chords you might not expect. Interesting twists and turns greet you.
He is an experienced performing songwriter, and he weaves thoughtful ideas and melodies into songs that spark your *mind*, as well as your *heartstrings*.
In his songs you'll hear influences ranging from sophisticated Burt Bacharach 60s jazz / pop -- to insightful lyrics much like Joni Mitchell, James Taylor or Leonard Cohen.
At age 4, Glenn got choked up when he'd hear wonderful music.
Years later, it still happens!

“The Journey Up is wonderful! I got “goose bumps” as I listened to it.”
Chris T. - Minneapolis
"Traveling By Night" is a fabulous instrumental. It does convey a late, late highway drive. You and the road; tangential thoughts running through your mind as the road unwinds. Love it.
