Mark Wayne Glasmire

Mark Wayne Glasmire has a new release CD Titled “Can’t Be Denied”. Have you heard of him? I have to admit, that didn’t until now.  He has performed with the greats such as Al Stewart, Kathy Mattea, Gordon Lightfoot, Guy Clark, Tracy Chapman, and so many more. The influences of these greats are heard in his album, however Mark absolutely has his own style. I always listen and watch an artist’s music and videos many times over to get the feel and the essence of what they are all about. The first time out, I got a very “Jimmy Buffett “ feel, smooth caribbean, beachy tone. Onward to listening again and again, it felt much more than just that. Mark wrote the songs himself and with collaboration from great songwriters and his personal friends. I was interested to read in his Bio that he grew up in Bethlehem, Pa, attended college and graduated with a degree in Business. It was just on a suggestion from a girlfriend while in college that he attend an open mic session at a local coffeehouse and do some performing. That’s where the music bug got him. Funny how life takes you in a different direction. Mark decided that music was the way he was going, not business. He picked up his first guitar as a youngster, and had been playing for years, for fun. Onward to Arlington, Texas where he now lives, and of course Nashville!

“Can’t Be Denied” the album, is a storytelling, multidimensional, and somewhat biographical about life experiences and will appeal to all. Take the time to listen to it, it will melt your heart. This 12 track  album is definitely gaining attention, and of course . produced in Nashville!

I really enjoyed this album, and MWG, has gained a new fan!! One day, I hope I can see him perform, shake his hand, and say thank you from the bottom of my heart,. I know sounds sappy but this is really something to listen to. I feel like I have a new friend, and we haven’t even met! That is the sign of a great songwriter and performer. Take the time to stream it, download it, and check out his Website at: www.markwayneglasmire.com.

Hi, Im Robin. I have been a music groupie/follower, since the '70s (showing my age). Gr0wing up in Oyster Bay, Long Island, N.Y. there was not a lot of Country music playing on the airways. I always found a way to seek out the country side of my youth, Marshall Tucker Band, Poco, Charlie Daniels, Johnny Cash, and my absolute all time favorite, Dwight Yoakam. The list goes on. (of course my disco friends, never knew this,) Moving to Florida in the early 1980's was awesome! There was more than one Country radio station on FM!! I discovered the greats like Tanya Tucker, Sammy Kershaw, Marty Stuart, Travis Tritt, Randy Travis. Line dancing every weekend, I was in heaven!! There is so much great talent out there now, its exciting and they are extremely innovative with their craft. I look forward to each time a new song and album are released. My son is a bass player and has moved to Nashville to pursue his dream of being a touring musician, and he is on the road right now. I guess you can say it runs in the family. :) So now I get the chance to visit the home of country music, Nashville!!! I love reaching out to the up and comers here in FLorida, there is so much amazing talent. This is not just a job, but a passion!!! Robin
