"Recording One"


Thuener’s first album grieves a psychic junkyard of “plastic and metal” houses, TVs and cell phones. From Duluth to Nairobi, she searches for inner sanctum through the messianic technology that can, ironically, disconnect us from who we are. At Duluth harbor, “covered with grain storage bins,” she approaches calm in the mandolin-filled “Cry the Moon”: “Her soul gently digging / forgiving / parting pains of dishonor / slowly healing the wounds of a broken / sacrament like a lover.”

Likewise, “Song for Ana” illuminates pain parting us from memories and homescapes. The birdlike piano accents the lyrics, “your mother still loves you / wherever you are,” leaving the listener breathless.

Thuener’s message strikes at the core of hardened hearts, untainted by cliché. She commemorates the modern self, time and place through sea sounds of glockenspiel, piano, cello and guitar. If seeking poetic honesty, look no further than Recording One, a captivating anti-folk album complimented by Thuener’s sharp lyrics and skillfully unrefined vocals.

Bio

Glenda Luck is currently in the studio recording her 2nd full length album, entitled One Hundred Million Albums, co-produced with Robert Stern. She has been playing and writing music as long as she can remember. She has shared the stage with an eclectic assortment of talented musicians and poets; Charlie Parr, Eric Berry of Trampled by Turtles, Lisa Star (Rhode Island Poet Laureate) and award winning poet Geoff Bouvier. She grew up playing the piano, flute and singing. She is always singing. In her head, there is always a song playing. Glenda grew up in rural New York State climbing trees and throwing stones at railroad tracks when not immersed in the woods behind her childhood home. Glenda has been writing poetry and songs since her childhood, -an "avid reflector". After graduating from high school she spent several months in Kenya before beginning classes at the Rhode Island School of Design. Her passion for music and travel have taken her around the world, from Kenya to Minnesota, from Senegal to New York City. She currently lives out on Block Island, a small island 7 miles off the coast of Rhode Island. It is here that she feels she has the time and space to seriously develop her song writing and performing. Her songs reflect her experiences, traveling and living life. There is not one particular incident in Glenda's life that has caused her to embrace music, it has been a matter of keeping an ear on the inner voice throughout her life, whispering, "just make music and the hell with the rest of it." Glenda says; "Music is like air to me, it's what I breathe to be normal. - It keeps me alive." Glenda Luck is currently in the process of expanding her touring schedule.
