up in a musical family in Marion N.C., Mitch Glenn learned and appreciated music from a very early age. Mitch's dad was a
drummer in a high school Rock-n-Roll band and taught him how to play the drums when he was just four years old. Mitch acquired
his singing skills from his mother, who sang in church all her life.
Through elementary school and up until high school,
Mitch played in garage bands as both a drummer and vocalist. When he started high school, he stopped playing and concentrated
on athletics so that he might further his higher education through athletic scholarships.
"Family and Friends have been my backbone
and support to chasing my dream." - Mitch Glenn
|Concentrating on athletics paid off-Mitch was offered a baseball scholarship in 1993 to Montreat (NC)
College, where he graduated in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business and a concentration in Marketing. He was
part of the first conference championship in Montreat history.|
While he was in college, Mitch's friends would hear
him sing in the car or around campus and began urging him to go onstage in Karaoke bars. Singing up there-that first time,
in front of all those people-rekindled Mitch's love for music.
After college, Mitch bought his first guitar, taught
himself to play and hasn't looked back since. He cut his first "demo" album of three songs in 2003 and all three were played
on 120 radio stations from coast to coast through the John Boy and Billy show and other stations. The single "I Salute You"
was dedicated to America's service men and women, winning wide acclaim.
Since signing with the Mooresville (NC)-based
Race City Artist Management, Mitch's singing career has begun to soar. He has represented UniLever Foods at numerous NASCAR
race events, played for beauty pageants and in 2004, he opened for Grammy award winner Tim McGraw at the Verizon Amphitheater
in Concord, N.C. Mitch has also shared the stage with Trick Pony at Fan Fare in Nashville and with Mark Wills at a NASCAR
race festival in Martinsville, VA. A clip of one of his shows has been aired on Country Music Television as part of the Country
Mitch has just recorded his first album, "Love Easy," with producer Kimo Forrest, who is also the renowned
lead guitarist for John Michael Montgomery. The "Love Easy" album, which is soon to be released, also shows the influence
of the famed Alabama band's Jeff Cook, who has been serving as Mitch's mentor in the music business. Jeff was instrumental
to the album's first remake single, "Shining Star," adding a vocal dimension with unprecedented harmonies along with that
definable guitar sound that we've all become familiar with over the years.
With his immeasurable talent and a wagon load of friends in the business, Mitch Glenn is clearly on the fast road
to the top of the music world!
