Brenham and Austin, TX Shows! - March 12, 2019

Hey, Everybody!  It’s that time of year again, and I wanted to make sure and let you know that I will be doing some shows this week in Brenham and Austin with a talented accompanist I’ve known for quite some time.  Ironically, Gene Williams was playing in the first official showcase I ever saw at SXSW before I had even dreamed of appearing on the live stage.  Since then, Gene has continued to perform and tour in the States and Europe with a variety of acts, and we have remained good friends across the miles.  It will be a real treat to get to do some music with Gene again and I hope that you can come out if you are in the Brenham and/or Austin area.

Glenna's Music Featured on KPFT Talk Show - January 14, 2019

Hey, Everybody!

I was pleasantly surprised to find an email in my inbox this afternoon, letting me know that a song of mine will be featured this evening on KPFT FM 90.1 here in Houston.  If you are in the area, you can listen “on the dial,” and everyone else can tune in at

The show is called “Open Journal” and is hosted by KPFT’s former, long-time general manager, Duane Bradley.  It showcases “interviews, local music, a local calendar and conversation.”  I am really looking forward to it! 

Oh, and the song is called “La Casa Que Yo Amo” (“This House I Love”) from my album, The Road Less Traveled.  Don’t worry if you don’t know Spanish—most of the lyrics are in English—and the song is very special to me because it is about my beloved home here at the edge of downtown Houston and the situation that people like me find ourselves in as the land developers in league with “big business” and our civic leaders are literally changing the face of the nation’s inner city neighborhoods in the best interest of so-called “progress.”

I hope that you will listen this evening if you can.  The show will also be archived at the link, above, for a couple of months.

Also, I want to take a minute to let people in the Houston area know that the 3rd Tuesday La Carafe performances are on hold while we try to raise some money to help the venue pay for fees that are necessary in order to get square with the PRO’s.  If you feel like helping preserve authentic Texas music at the oldest bar in Houston with a historical marker on the brick wall out front to prove how bona fide it truly is, please send any ideas or suggestions that you may have.

In the meantime, I wish everyone everywhere a fabulous start to another New Year.  Just think of all the good times we’ll have in store, just around the bend.

Y’all come! 


Hear "Be My Valentine (On Spotify)" This Season! - December 17, 2018

Hear “Be My Valentine (On Christmas)” and “Christmas Is Coming” on Spotify this season . . .  Available on CD and Vinyl . . . Email at your convenience.  Happy Holidays! 
Hey, Everybody!
The tree is glowing, the old wood-frame house is warm and cozy, the kitchen is getting good exercise and the record player too, filling these familiar hardwood rooms with the scents and sounds of Christmas.  There is a peaceful, quiet feeling of a Happy Holiday ahead . . . songs to write, books to read, just getting a chance to rest, watch the blue jays and cardinals flitting through gnarled, leafless branches of the backyard fig whose Fall harvest still stocks the fridge as the playful squirrels scamper ‘round the trunk of the giant pecan watching over the metal roof that protects us.  Picking pecans and tangerines, shelling and juicing.  Laughter and love.  Memories in the making.  There is no place like home.
Wishing you and yours all the best of the season.  Hope to see you at La Carafe tomorrow evening if you’re in Houston . . .
Y’all come!

Houston: “3rd Tuesdays @ La Carafe” Reminder - July 17, 2018

Hey, Everybody!  I’m back in Houston for a few days and looking forward to another “Third Tuesday” of the month show at historic La Carafe in the downtown Market Square tonight from 9-11 o’clock.  I hope you will stop by if you’re in the area.  It would be great to get a chance to catch up!  In the meantime, I’m sending everyone everywhere my best wishes for a fun and productive summer and many good times ahead. 

Y’all come!

An Update from Palm Springs, CA - June 19, 2018

Hey, Everybody!  I’m relaxing here in Palm Springs, gazing out at the most gorgeous poolside mountain view, enjoying breakfast in bed and writing to you to say that I am having an absolutely incredible time.  I’ve been recording my new album with the amazing Ronnie King on his ranch in Thermal—about a half hour from here.  We traveled to Newport Beach where we stayed on a yacht for a couple of days—a first for me—spent an evening at the most amazing restaurant in Laguna Beach where we dined on gourmet food with a chef and a magazine publisher to the tunes of a terrific live band, then back to Newport where we went back into the studio to record the backing guitar parts with Alex Vo, a most talented and pleasant young man who cut layers of exquisite acoustic guitar and steel guitar parts on seven songs and high energy rockin’ electric guitars on another—all in only four hours!  I couldn’t be happier.  I am thrilled with the entire experience and most of all with these new, original songs, which are my best.  Ronnie King is an extraordinary producer, and I feel sure that you will agree when you hear this music!

In the meantime, I received exciting news from Houston.  My “brother from another mother,” Jimmy Pizzitola, and dear friend, Greg Henkel on his incredible viofiddle, will be standing in for me tonight at 9 at La Carafe in the downtown Market Square, doing “an evening of Glenna Bell”—what a cool concept!  I only wish I could be there, but I hope that you will be if you are in the Houston area.  I believe that it will be a real treat, and I am flattered. 

There is so much more that I could say about my time here, but instead I will leave you with a couple of videos that I discovered after talking with Ronnie about his friends, The Offspring, my new favorite band that I wish I would have discovered sooner.  Their singer and primary songwriter, Dexter, has a Ph.D. and I am not surprised based on the level of creativity, wit, and versatility in his writing.  I literally laughed out loud all the way through “Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)”—especially the ending—and was shocked and awed by the videographer’s powerful take on “Hit That,” a grim statement on modern day society, featuring Ronnie’s signature performance on key’s, which, in my opinion, really makes the song:

“Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)”—The Offspring:

“Hit That” (featured artist, Ronnie King on keyboards)—The Offspring:

 Until next time . . .

Goin' to California: The New Album - June 11, 2018

Hey, Everybody!  I’m pleased to announce that I’m goin’ to California to record my new album with the amazing Ronnie King at his ranch near Palm Springs.  I leave tomorrow, so I won’t be doing the third Tuesdays show at La Carafe in Houston next week, which I will certainly miss as there truly is no place like home, but I’m really looking forward to this great adventure and making music with Ronnie again:

I will be keeping you posted on this exciting project and more.  In the meantime, I’ll leave you with an impressive article from the Coachella Valley newspaper that showcases Ronnie’s creative achievements and contributions to the community and also nicely captures the feel of where I’ll be:

And now, back to packing. 

Let the good times roll on . . .

Y’all come! 

Houston: La Carafe "Every 3rd Tuesday" Show - April 15, 2018

Hey, Everybody!  Happy “Top Ten Spring Day.”  It’s more beautiful weather and good times here in Houston, and once again I’m looking forward to getting back out to historic La Carafe on the downtown Market Square Tuesday night from 9-11.  I hope that you can stop by if you’re in the area.  In the afterglow of the now world-famous Art Car Parade, remember all the fun we’ve had here in our local, down-home scene?  Let the good times roll on . . . AND

Y’all come!

Austin: March 15 + Houston "Third Tuesday" Show - March 14, 2018

Hey, Everybody!  It’s a beautiful day here in Houston with unusually low humidity and temperatures in the cool sixties—perfect Springtime weather for the scenic drive through the sparkling, blue-bonneted hills to Austin. 

I’m really looking forward to getting back to Opa! on South Lamar tomorrow (Thursday, March 15) where I’ll be appearing with Greg Henkel on his incredible viofiddle at 3 p.m.  Big Kev’s annual Americana radio showcase at Opa! is such a welcomed reprieve from the hubbub of SXSW.  The café, with its cozy, coffee house atmosphere, magical outdoor patio, and dedicated parking lot, is the perfect setting for the diverse array of Texas and touring talent hand-picked for the occasion by Big Kev himself all the way from NYC.  This three-day event is in its ninth year now and still going strong, thanks to Kev.  Check out the lineup in the Austin Chronicle if you are in town for SXSW this week! 

It is hard to believe that we’re already approaching another “third Tuesday of the month” show at historic La Carafe in downtown Houston on Market Square.  I am planning to get this one going a bit earlier than usual for a change, so we will start at 8 and play until 10 on Tuesday evening.  La Carafe is quite an intimate, low key spot with a moody, age-old feel, a real classic jukebox between sets, and a receptive audience of local insiders and the myriad world travelers who come and go to and from the nearby hotels that line the streets at the heart of the city.  I can’t imagine any place I’d rather play. 

I hope that you’re enjoying this day.  Hope to see you in Austin or Houston if you’re in the area.  Happy Trails . . .

Y’all come!

Houston Tomorrow and Austin in March - February 19, 2018

Hey, Everybody!  Happy Presidents’ Day!

I feel like celebrating, as I’m basking in the afterglow of a weekend spent finishing a new song that marks an exciting breakthrough in my songwriting and will complete the new album in progress that I’ll be telling you about more in the upcoming months.

In the meantime, I want to remind everyone in the Houston area that tomorrow (February 20) is the third Tuesday of the month, so I’ll be at historic La Carafe in Market Square from 9-11 p.m. with Greg Henkel on his incredible viofiddle.  To my surprise, last month’s show was snowed out (yes, in Houston!), so it will be especially good to be back at LC. 

And it’s that time of the year, so once again I’m getting ready to make the scenic Springtime drive to Austin for Big Kev’s annual Americana radio showcase at Opa! on South Lamar where I’ll be performing on the afternoon of March 15.  Opa! is such a welcomed reprieve from the hubbub of SXSW with its cozy, coffee house atmosphere, lovely outdoor patio, and dedicated parking lot, not to mention the diverse array of Texas and touring talent hand-picked for the occasion by Big Kev himself all the way from NYC. 

I am really looking forward to this day.

Y’all come!

3rd Tuesday at La Carafe + Liberace Too! - January 12, 2018

Hey, Everybody!

Just a quick note to remind everyone that I’m at La Carafe in Houston on Tuesday with Greg Henkel on his incredible viofiddle from 9-11 p.m.

And with that, I will leave you with this:

 AND here he is tap dancing with Sammy Davis, Jr.:

 I know that it is a cliché, but I wish that I could play like Liberace!

 He truly was and is an amazing, versatile talent.

 Happy New Year to everyone everywhere.

1,175,000 Spotify Streams + La Carafe Holiday Show! - December 18, 2017

8th Annual La Carafe “Third Tuesdays” Holiday Show

December 19 from 9-11:30 p.m.

with Greg Henkel on His Incredible Viofiddle – Y’all come!


Hey, Everybody!

This time of the year always brings out the dreamer in me, and a few years ago I found myself sitting up alone ‘til the early morning hours of a cold December night, penning a song that I loved at first sight.  Now, I am pleased to report that “Be My Valentine (On Christmas)” is has been placed on the Spotify curated playlist, Acoustic Christmas, again this year and is making headway fast at about 10,000 streams a day with those numbers rising as we approach Christmas. 

“Valentine” has topped a million Spotify streams—currently at 1,175,000—and was covered by a Seattle Indie band called Depressica, which I hope will be the beginning of a trend as I’d love to hear this special song rendered in unique ways by diverse artists.  I always believed this was “the little song that could,” and I’m so happy to hear that people everywhere from Mexico City to New York City, Seattle to Hamburg, Chicago and Minneapolis to Singapore and Taipei are listening.

If you are in Houston, I would love to see you and play “Valentine” live for you with Greg Henkel on his incredible viofiddle at La Carafe tomorrow night.  It is sure to be a festive evening with Market Square all dressed up for Christmas and friendly people coming and going as we celebrate the ending of another wonderful year of life despite the struggles that we’ve faced.

There is a speaking part in “Valentine” that comes to mind here at close:

Merry Christmas, Darlin’

We’ve made it a year now

And I’ know that it’s been hard

But I know that we’re gonna last a lifetime  

I am wishing everyone everywhere all the best of this holiday season and precious moments that will become cherished memories through the years.

Y’all come!

Houston: Third Tuesdays at La Carafe - November 20, 2017

Hey, Everybody! There is so much going on—I know you are very busy and so am I but the holiday spirit is in the air and the temperature here in Houston is just so perfect—low humidity, sunshine and the cool Gulf Coast breeze drifting through my porch into my old house with the doors wide open and shorts and tee-shirt days.

So I hope that you will come out to La Carafe tomorrow evening if you can. It is going to be great with not only me and Greg but also special guests Erin Rodgers and Tyler McConnell.

In the meantime, I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. And with that in mind, I will leave you with this incredible artist who is a continual inspiration to me, having discovered him a couple of years ago via ASCAP:
Y’all come!

Houston: "Third Tuesdays" Show at La Carafe - September 17, 2017

Hey, Everybody!  Many thanks to all those who called, emailed, and sent text messages to show concern during Hurricane Harvey.  It was quite an experience to say the least. Now, we’re heading toward Fall and I’m looking forward to welcoming in another new season with the “third Tuesdays” show at La Carafe in downtown Houston on Market Square this Tuesday evening, September 19 from 9-11 p.m. with Greg Henkel on his incredible viofiddle.  Like my hundred-year-old wood frame “company house” near downtown, historic La Carafe—the oldest commercial building in Houston, formerly Kennedy Bakery—weathered the storm like a veteran.  I hope you can make it out if you’re in the area.  And I’ll send an update on the new album when I know more.  We are working on a Plan B since Harvey decided to throw us a curve ball and delay production, which was scheduled to begin in Houston on August 28!  New music, fun times, and exciting news on the horizon . . . Y’all come!

La Carafe Third Tuesdays Show and Glen Campbell - August 14, 2017

Hey, Everybody!

I am really looking forward to the next phase of my music.  I have very exciting news on the horizon.

I will be at La Carafe here in Houston this Tuesday night and I hope that you will come out if you can.

In the meantime, I want to pass along this pleasantly surprising video by Alice Cooper:

I actually don’t think that people should talk openly about someone’s medical condition, but Glen Campbell made his situation clear publicly with his “farewell album” and I would like to leave you today with his cover of “These Days” by Jackson Browne:

He is even more than I thought before and I hope that you will take a minute to listen.

Y’all come!

Houston: La Carafe Tonight, Dean's Downtown Sunday - July 18, 2017

Hey, Everybody!

I hope that everyone everywhere is having a fun and productive summer.  I’ve been enjoying spending time at the turn-of-the-century one-room “Lone Star” schoolhouse my grandmother attended that we are renovating deep in the magical woods of East Texas across the road from my parents’ lovely home where I spent so much of my youth.  I am working on songs for an exciting new album that I will write about more in the near future!

But in the meantime, it is that time again—time for my “third Tuesday” show at historic La Carafe on Congress Avenue in downtown Houston tonight (July 18) from 9-11 p.m. with Billy Sanders on electric guitar and Greg Henkel on his incredible viofiddle.  Lots of fun guaranteed, you never know who you might see . . . at La Carafe!

And on Sunday (July 23) from 8-10 p.m., I’ll be at another historic Houston venue, Dean’s Downtown, on Main Street with Texas singer-songwriter, Matt Harlan.  Matt is the “real deal” and it will be a pleasure to share the stage with him in a casual but serious songwriter showcase that attracts a regular crowd of people who come out to socialize and listen.

Parking is free and easy in downtown Houston on Tuesday and Sunday evenings, and La Carafe and Dean’s are air-conditioned—a welcomed reprieve from this Houston Heat. 

Y’all come!  

Houston: “3rd Tuesdays @ La Carafe” Reminder - June 19, 2017

Hey, Everybody!

In the meantime, I wish everyone everywhere a HAPPY JUNETEENTH!

I’m also pleased to report that next weekend I’ll be shooting a brand new music video with French-Canadian artist, Natali Leduc, as we continue our ongoing series of video releases, which we launched in 2014 with the dark and moody “Southern Gothic Wedding Waltz” and followed up last year with the light and airy “Tonight’s the Night (We Graduate)”:

On Sunday evening, I’ll be back at Dean’s Downtown in Houston with Greg Henkel on his incredible viofiddle and I’m really looking forward to that, too!

Lone Star: Critics' Choice 2016 + More! - February 4, 2017

Grackle & Grackle Songwriting Workshop w/ Glenna Bell Sign Up Now!  (Feb 9-March 9)


Hey, Everybody!


Good news! On my way to Beaumont, Texas to perform at the historic Jefferson Theatre on Janis Joplin’s birthday, I was quite pleasantly surprised to get an email from my publicist, Mark Pucci in Atlanta, letting me know that Lone Star: Songs and Stories Straight from the Heart of Texas is a top album pick for 2016 in Deep Roots, an extraordinarily comprehensive and highly credible Manhattan-based music magazine that I have admired for quite some time, the brainchild of veteran Rolling Stone music writer, David McGee:


Then, out of the blue I received an email from a talented friend in Nashville letting me know that Lone Star was also a critics’ choice on TWO “top ten” lists for 2016 in the top-tier, subscription-only UK magazine, Country Music People:  


In the January issue, each of their CD reviewers has a page showing their Top 10 of 2016.  Reviewer Kelly Gregory placed Lone Star: Songs and Stories Straight from The Heart of Texas at Number 8 of her 10, with the comment: "An utterly brilliant and unique album from one of Texas' finest and underrated singer-songwriters."


And reviewer Paul Riley also has the album at Number 8, with the comment: "Underrated Texas singer-songwriter, Glenna Bell, charms us with more tales from the Lone Star State."


And THEN someone sent me this great pic from my hometown newspaper, the Beaumont Enterprise, commemorating my appearance at the Jefferson Theatre:


And THEN, like magic, I sat down and wrote a brand new song that I love!


What a wonderful year this is turning out to be.  I’m really looking forward to seeing it all unfold as I enjoy Super Bowl LI from a close distance here in my hundred year old woodframe house at the shadowy-sunshiny edge of the city, reading Patti Smith’s M Train—a gift from Big Kev—in my cozy old bed as a blimp floats by my upstairs window against the sparkling backdrop of the downtown skyline.  How surreal.  And the fireworks have been spectacular!


The next shows are here in Super Bowl City with Greg Henkel on his incredible viofiddle. I’ll be doing some material from my recent “Janis Joplin experience” and of course the originals, too:


Dean’s Downtown:  February 12 from 8-10 p.m.


La Carafe:  February 21 from 9-11 p.m.


Looking forward . . .


Y’all come!

Houston—La Carafe; Beaumont—The Jefferson Theatre; Grackle & Grackle Songwriting Workshop! - January 16, 2017

Hey, Everybody!  Happy MLK Day!

And Happy New Year!

2017 is off to an exciting start.  I am enjoying the process of preparing to conduct a five-week songwriting workshop for Grackle & Grackle in the Houston Heights, beginning on February 2.  They have posted a description of this unique experience and they’re taking sign up’s now:

Please email me if you have questions and please help us spread the word:

I am also happy to announce a special “third Tuesday” show at La Carafe tomorrow—January 17 from 9:30-11 p.m.—in Downtown Houston with Greg Henkel on his incredible viofiddle: 

La Carafe is a “candlelit place for sipping wine & ghost hunting inside the oldest commercial building in Houston,” located at 813 Congress Ave, Houston, TX 77002: 


As always, we will be doing an original set, and I will be previewing some of my favorite Janis Joplin songs to be featured in my solo appearance at another historic venue—the Jefferson Theatre in Beaumont, Texas—on JJ’s birthday this Thursday, January 19 from 6-7:20 p.m.

"The Jefferson Theatre is a historic performing arts theatre located on Fannin Street in downtown Beaumont, Texas . . . The theatre is featured on the National Register of Historic Places and recognized as a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark. The theatre recently underwent a comprehensive multimillion-dollar renovation."

After my performance, there will be a showing of the movie, Little Girl Blue, a new documentary on Janis Joplin’s life and music.  Needless to say, I am flattered to have been contacted by the City of Beaumont Event Facilities Office to entertain in my hometown, situated in the Golden Triangle not far from where Janis grew up in Port Arthur, Texas near the Louisiana border.  I am really looking forward to this memorable evening and I hope that you will join us if you can:

Hear the New Indie Version of "Valentine!" - December 31, 2016

Hey, Everybody!  

"Be My Valentine (On Christmas)" reached a million streams on Spotify and was covered this season by an indie band based in Seattle, Washington:

Featuring Jessica Mayuga and Lucas Cathey, with tags “alternative bedroom recordings christmas diy emo holiday lo-fi sad girl seattle,” it appears that they are making headway on the West Coast music scene and beyond.

I’ve always heard there is nothing like the feeling of having your song covered by a talented up and coming act, and now I know.  I love their minimalist take on “Valentine,” and I hope that you enjoy this little playlist from these young people in Seattle:

Wherever you are and whatever you do – Have a Happy New Year!

Hey, Everybody!  I hope that you’re having a smooth transition into the holidays.  Last night the local news announced that only four states in the USA are not having snow, and we are hoping for some this year here in Houston—wouldn’t it be extraordinary to enjoy snow in Houston on Christmas?  In the meantime, it is scheduled to be eighty degrees here tomorrow and then the temperatures will begin to drop quickly, making it a perfect “feel” for the shows at Dean’s Downtown on Main Street this Sunday, December 18 from 8-10 p.m. and historic La Carafe on Market Square Tuesday, December 20 from 9-11 p.m. with Greg Henkel on his incredible viofiddle and Nathan Mays on double bass.  If you are in town, it would be so nice to ring in the holidays with you, so I hope that you will stop by.  Street parking downtown is free and easy on weeknights and there is nothing like being together with friends in the heart of a big city all decked out for the season and ready to ring in another beautiful new year of life. 

I am wishing everyone everywhere all the best of the holidays and many memories in the making as we approach 2017 . . .

Houston Shows + Spotify Permanent Holiday Playlist - November 11, 2016

Hey, Everybody!  It is hard to believe how fast another month has slipped by and that it is already time again for the shows at Dean’s Downtown (Sunday, November 13 from 8-10 p.m.) and La Carafe (Tuesday, November 15 from 9-11 p.m.) in Houston

I’m really looking forward to performing with Nathan Mays on bass and Greg Henkel on his incredible viofiddle AND to soaking in the downtown atmosphere amidst this crisp, cool weather that we are enjoying here in Houston at this time of the year.  It is so nice to actually feel the changing seasons and to begin to sense the excitement of the forthcoming holidays in the air. 

And speaking of the holidays, I am pleased to announce that I recently received word from my distributor that “Be My Valentine (On Christmas),” which has being doing so well on Spotify over the last two consecutive seasons, has been placed on a permanent Spotify playlist, “Acoustic Christmas,” so will be available to Spotify streamers again this year and for years to come on that list and others

Finally, I would like to say thank you to all those who have recently signed up for this newsletter—it is great to have you on board—and to those who have been writing in requests for signed vinyl and CD’s for stocking stuffers.  It has actually been quite a lot of fun to package those up in creative ways that I hope you will like.

I wish everyone everywhere all the best as we approach the end of another beautiful year of life and the beginning of yet another.

Y’all come!
