lullabies for all ages ... sweet sublime sounds to lull babies and beyond ...
"I've been playing Glenn's lullaby cd for my son who's now almost 4 since he was a baby. It's our nightly ritual delight to many times both of us falling to sleep to a lulling multilayered kaleidoscope of looped and mixed vocals and a myriad of other blended sounds. We love this cd and can't imagine a night without it!" – Adora LaRoche, Williamsburg, MA
recorded Dec. 2011 in San Luis Obispo, CA
Songs and sounds in a new land - live and live-looped instant creations which speak to moving into a bigger self and burning off the old.
recorded 2012-2014 in Northampton, MA and Plainfield, MA. Glenn on guitar (fretless and bowed), vocals, piano, flute.
A sublime journey into the depths of sound, using only voice. The human voice is the only instrument that is inside of us. Making this all-vocal CD has re-inspired me to reach within for healing, using voice to make the inner audible. May we all sing our way to a more reverent world.
recorded July 2005 in Arcata, CA
Recorded in the depths of a rainy winter, these songs venture into the quiet, misty fog. Guitar and vocals. My first CD using looping, all recorded in real time.
"I play your recording in my home. It´s in tune with the wind and the birds and all the quitness around here. The space become bigger and bigger. The dance can find place in your sound." – Gisela N., Barcelona, Spain
"What most people won't dare on a six string guitar Glenn pulls off on four strings, accompanied by subtle, picture-painting lyricism." – Lila Nelson
Recorded 2003 in Arcata, CA
"This instrumental piano disc swept me up from the first listen with pretty melodies that made me want to close my eyes and let myself be transported by the music.. . Smith's Piano isn't exactly light, but none of the 16 tracks weigh heavy on a listener either, or fade into the background, or dull the senses with repetition - as instrumental tracks sometimes can. . . Lots of talent, there, both in his fingers and, I suspect, in his mind and heart as well." - Jennifer Savage, Arcata Eye
"Luscious! Textures and Landscapes to dance to and live to! Especially useful in movement improvisation classes,guided relaxation, and movement therapy work. There's a real range of feelings in Glenn Smith's music. The tracks on these CDs help my students discover more expressive range in their
movements and their lives." – Jandy Bergman
Glenn Smith's piano is imbued with the playfulness of a child, the wisdom of a sage and the sensitivity of someone whose ears & heart are as open as his fingers are alive." - Lila Nelson
After years of wanting to do a piano album, I poured out these improvisational pieces over a 5-day period in March 2002, reflecting just about everything that had been building over my 16 years of playing.
