All I Have
"Songs that mean something". That's what Glenn Groves will say if you ask him what kind of songs he strives to write. And, based on his influences he's had great teachers. Songwriters like Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp, Glen Campbell, and Johnny Cash have helped Glenn become the artist that he is today. Glenn's first studio released album "All I Have" is a collection of songs that virtually every person can relate to. From "Last Lullaby", a heart-wrenching song about a daughter growing up, to "Looking Back", a story about a man who spent his life working to provide for his family only to find himself old and alone. These songs are honest and heartfelt and come from Glenn's experience as a father, husband, son and grandson. "Life is all about family, friends and time", says Glenn, "you can never have enough of those three things". Working with producer Steve Ashley, Glenn says they were able to capture the different moods of each song. "Another Good Man" is a hard driving song about returning to his father's hometown while "Losing Everything" is a soft piano and violin laden ballad. "We didn't follow any rules on this album. If we thought a song was crying out for heavy guitars then we put them in. We tried to stay true to the country music formula but we also had to let the songs go where they needed to go." And these songs do travel well. One song moves seamlessly into the next with Glenn's strong and clear voice leading the way. Glenn continues to play 100+ show per year to growing audiences all over Southern Ontario and hopes that this debut album will provide him with the opportunity to tour and showcase his own music.
