ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Honesty.” That’s what indie artist Tim Glenn says he wants his music to be known for. “It’s a promise I made to God when I was only 16—that I would only do music for Him and that my songs would speak honestly about God, faith and my own spiritual journey.”

Tim’s latest single, My Last Glide, is an honest look at his wrestle with his greatest adversary: himself.

"My Last Glide references the Greek myth of Icarus," says Glenn, "whose own pride caused him to fly too close to the sun. In this song, I pray for salvation from the demon of pride that haunts me. Don't let this be my last glide. Save me from me."

Growing up in the tiny south Texas town of Three Rivers, Tim has seen his share of heartache and turmoil. His mother abandoned him and his four siblings when he was only five years old. Two years later, his father died at the young age of 30.

Tim spent most of his childhood bouncing between living with his grandmother and his aunt’s family before landing at the South Texas Children’s Home—a Baptist home for abused, neglected and orphaned children. “It was there that I came to know Christ,” Tim says, “through the loving care of committed Christian adults who saw potential in a misguided, angry young boy.”

That support helped Tim go to college and pursue a career in broadcasting, where he became an award-winning television news anchor in Colorado.

“In high school, I told my friends that I was going to be a newscaster during the week and a rock star on the weekends,” Tim jokes. “I quit television in 2004 but my passion for creating music has never changed.”

Tim's first full-time music experience came as the lead vocalist for the band, Main Street. The band recorded an album in 1989 but the record company went under before the album was ever released. It's still never been released to this day. After college, Tim served four years as the lead vocalist for XP, a progressive rock band based in Colorado Springs, before branching out as a solo indie artist. His first project, New Pair of Shoes, was praised by critics. Sales of the album allowed Tim to release a sophomore project, titled So Human...an edgier rock release than New Pair of Shoes. One of the tracks from that album, Forgive and Forget, can be heard in the feature film, For the Glory. Another track, Keep Me, has been sung as a worship song in churches throughout southern Colorado. Tim now works with Compassion International, a holistic child development ministry that serves over 1.4 million children in developing countries. His latest single, I'm No Superhero is slated for release in September 2013, with another single, My Last Glide, to follow in mid-October 2013.

“I’ve come full circle,” Tim says, “I went from being a child in need to helping children in need. I went from telling people all the terrible news that happens in the world to working with an organization that’s doing something about it. This is exactly where God wants me to be.”

Tim and his wife Jennifer have been married for 15 years. They have two sons, Morgan Douglas Glenn and Grayson Troy Glenn. They live in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
