My name is Glen Rhodes, and I've been a musician and composer all my life. At the age of 4, I began exploring the piano, and learning what I could make it do. I had a really old, retro synthesizer that I used to make really simple melodies and put them to beats and bass lines. This was my first experience with "multitrack composing".
I, like most people, have always searched for a way to express my soul. The means by which you work through the crazy things in life. For me, that means has always been music. At the end of a tough day, just sitting down at the piano can make the stress melt away.
I play piano by ear and love to play crazy improv jazz and rock.
I used to program computer games for the first generation PlayStation.
Along with a friend, I co-wrote a musical in 1999 called "Chrystanthia".
In 2005 I was hired and contracted to write music for the Oprah Winfrey show. My music is now heard by millions of people around the world.
I'm a lifelong musical theater fan, with Les Mis being my favorite musical.
Why support my efforts?
So, I know it seems that these kinds of tracks magically "happen". That maybe some divine force puts them together and some orchestra records them and they pop into existence. The reality, however, is this: I'm just a guy. A normal person like you. I sit in my studio for HOURS on end, and I lovingly create these tracks. I'm not some millionaire, nor do these just make themselves. I'm a person, who makes these. Period. So, your support is deeply appreciated, because this actually costs me money, and more importantly, time. Life is short, so time is the commodity that we all have a limited amount of. I'm trading my time to make these tracks. Purchasing these tracks is a recognition of that basic fact.
