ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mark Wayne Glasmire
Singer/Songwriter

Raised in Bethlehem, PA, Mark learned the acoustic guitar at an early age. Influenced by James Taylor, Harry Chapin, Jimmy Buffet and the Beatles, he started writing and performing his own music while in college. While in school, Mark played many local venues in the Eastern Pennsylvania area, including many music festivals and clubs. He recorded his first album, “Sad Songs” in the late 70’s, an effort that highlighted his fresh and original material.

With the first album under his belt, Mark moved on to Greenwich Village in New York City in the 80’s and spent many years performing at top name venues such as Folk City, The Speakeasy, The Bottom Line and other well-known Village stages. During his time in New York, Mark was fortunate to share the stage with many well-known acts such as Tom Paxton, Arlo Guthrie, Tracy Chapman, Suzan Vega, John Gorka and Gordon Lightfoot. One review in the New York Times during this era remarked that “there aren’t many artists who get as good as Mark.”

Over the next few years, Mark went on to record an EP entitled “The Sun, The Moon and The Seasons” a local favorite and bestseller in New York City. Later as an artist with Comstock Records, he released two singles, “Hey Girl” and “Can You Feel It,” into the European market, both of which received extensive airplay and reached the top 5 on the European charts. In 1995, Mark moved from Pennsylvania to Nashville to become more involved in the creative community that flourishes in the nation’s songwriting capital. He immediately began writing and performing in the “Music City” at writer’s nights, as well as other local venues, including the famous Blue Bird Cafe, the Exit Inn, the Wildhorse Saloon and 3rd and Lindsley. As a consequence of those gigs, Mark began receiving local airplay on Nashville stations which led to the recording and release of the “All of My Heart” CD through his own label, Traceway Music. Mark co-wrote ten of the eleven songs on that album. He has also received extensive airplay for the past three years throughout parts of North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.

Marks most recent release, a compilation of self penned songs called “Scrapbook”, was released in November of 06’. This collection of songs was written over a period of almost 20 years, but until now was never recorded. The richness of his lead vocals and his multiple harmony parts, coupled with his outstanding acoustic guitar playing, showcase a truly talented artist who has depth, experience and a true love of his craft. “Scrapbook” is currently being promoted to radio in both the Folk and Americana formats throughout the US.

Mark will be releasing yet another CD, “Life Goes On” in early 2009. Again, Mark wrote or co-wrote all of the songs on the disc. In May of 2005, Mark had the pleasure of performing songs from this CD for 8,000 U.S Marines and their families at the Marine base at Twentynine Palms, CA, while opening for Dierks Bentley.

Mark is always a favorite with crowds because of his good humor, honest rapport with the audience, but most importantly, his outstanding talent as a performing artist and original songwriter.

Outstanding Contemporary Country CD
Mark Wayne Glasmire has such a smooth, polished, natural, and completely engaging, country tenor voice (not unlike James Taylor’s), it’s a wonder he’s not a staple of Country or Adult Contemporary radio. A singer/songwriter who flashes a scalpel-like precision in his song craft (which also reflects his grounding in contemporary folk), his new CD, “Life Goes On,” only furthers the storied – if largely unheralded, talents of this veteran performer. Utilizing a top-notch Nashville supporting ensemble, “Life Goes On” is filled with moving vignettes rich with utterly flawless flourishes of mandolin, fiddle, dobro-slide guitar, and Glasmire’s own signature and virtuoso guitar playing. Songs like “Everything Is Gonna Be Alright,” or “You Opened My Eyes,” and lead track, “True Love Knows,” resonate with heartfelt narratives and melodies that are both immediate and timeless. In fact, the 12-song CD is filled with songs that stand out as singular and noteworthy. And as he sings on the CD’s title track “Life Goes On,” “we should’ve seen it coming…” so too should music fans see the day when Mark Wayne Glasmire’s name ranks with contemporaries like James Taylor, Vince Gill, and Rodney Crowell as substantive American artists.
