Chapel Hill’s Glenn Jones is a well-traveled songwriter/performer/multi-instrumentalist, known both for his engaging solo shows, as well as bassist for acts like The Peter Holsapple Combo, The Goodloves, and many others.
Join us for the official release for his third full-length album, “Ready for the Good Times”, 12 songs of love, life, laughs, and hope, continuing his musical path from longtime barroom rocking belter to rootsy soulful balladeer/storyteller. Recorded at The Rubber Room with acclaimed producer Jerry Brown, “Ready for the Good Times” utilized a who’s who of area pros, including Robbie Link (upright bass), Joe McPhail (keys and drums), John Boulding (dobro), Rebecca Newton, and Goodloves Nancy Middleton and Emma Davis, along with performances by Joseph Terrell and Libby Rodenbough on acoustic and fiddle (Mipso) and Andrew Marlin (Mandolin Orange).
These 12 songs mark the maturing of Jones from life time bar rocker/belter to a more expressive, soulful storytelling troubadour. Many of the talents on the CD reprise their performances live – Robbie Link (bass), Joe McPhail (keys), John Boulding (dobro), and Rebecca Newton and The Goodloves Emma and Nancy bringing gorgeous harmonies. Plus a plethora of guests such as John Saylor, Barry Gray and Durham acapella group, Stella. Do not miss the magic!
