Glenn Jones is a talented singer-songwriter and performer with decades of great performing experiences. Glenn's music is hard to classify, but is genuine and gripping. Heartfelt alt-country, with bluesy elements abounding, but the old rock and roller keeps struggling to get out, and often succeeds. Songs about love gained, drinking, love lost, and some more drinking. He’s fun, and encourages audience sing-along.
