National Country Music Artist
Glen’s voice is versatile, but he loves to sing good Country music. Glen says, “some songs are just fun, some songs tell a story, and some songs change people’s lives! I am so thankful for the gift I have been given to make a difference in people’s lives through music. Whether it’s just entertaining the crowd with great music, honoring the Veterans/active service and first responders, or sharing uplifting songs for the family, the glory is to God for His grace!”
Glen has performed at hundreds of venues/events on the East Coast. He has performed for as many as 25,000 people, but he also likes to sing at small venues in up close and personal settings. Glen says, “I appreciate the people so much who have supported my music through the years! Lord willing, there will be many more to come.”
