    Singer/songwriter Cooper Kenward brings the intimacy of country ballads into a folk rock setting on Glass Mountain Rodeo’s eponymous debut. In his stories about middle-class heroes, love, loss and nostalgia persist, but from the perspective of a guitarist with an ear for edgy harmonies and subtle production. Each of the ten tracks have a solid foundation of honest telecaster riffs that alternate with tremulous vocals. And the soulful drumming of Jason Slota and modern production stylings of Robert Shelton give the album a wide range of feeling and a live-sounding glow.

    At times, the orchestration behind the country soul foundation comes into the foreground. You’ll hear trombone, pedal steel, organ, bass clarinet and the occasional synth. Most tunes are made for dancing, others are poignant and misty. But through Kenward’s guitar playing (like a young Neil Young's) and his vocal fill-ins (like an old Bob Dylan's) the vision of Glass Mountain Rodeo is clear — bring together a diverse group of music appreciators and give them music to drink to.

lyrics

you look just like a swinging manzanita
and i feel like a tired old oak
you move through a room
like a pickup truck with two of it’s wheels broke
I can hear you sining from down the street
with no rhyme, rhythm or beat
and with that sweet song I’ll still come running
through glass with no shoes on my feet

because someone like you is hard to hold on to
if you come my way I don’t know what to do
I don’t know what to do

You’ll wake up at 4am just to bake a pie
mess it up and top it with cream
if you are a hurricane then i’m the sky
and whatever the hell that means
the only way to hold you still
is to put you into a photograph
if my life is a joke and it probably is
you’re gonna have the last laugh

because someone like you is hard to hold on to
if you come why I don’t know what to do
I don’t know what to do

If we don’t kill each other
I don’t know what will
were more dangerous
than tigers, laser beams,
atom bombs and oil spills.
quaaludes, jujubes
and freewill.

because someone like you is hard to hold on to
if you come why I don’t know what to do
I don’t know what to do
