Anglum Mock & Greene (aka AMG), the outstanding new Acoustic Americana trio out of Colorado Springs, CO, is made up of three music veterans who have experienced tour stages, song circles, cover bands, recording studios, publishing company deadlines, and innumerable house concerts. Early in 2018, songwriters Cindy Wheeler Greene and Lewis Mock came together for a co-writing experiment. The duo quickly invited Sean Anglum to join them, creating a strong songwriting triad…something the three “threatened” to do for many years. After a relentless summer writing regimen, AMG was suddenly looking at over a dozen solid songs in their portfolio. When asked to play their songs for concerts in Colorado Springs, the trio found an audience that responded to the AMG songs and sound of alternating lead vocals and rich three-part harmonies.
As 2019 dawned, plans were made to take their original song output to Nashville, TN to record what would be not only their first full-length album, but also a testament to their knack of the songwriting craft. The album, produced by the inimitable Doug Holmquist of Mastermind Mastering and Heavy Hitter Productions, features “first call” Nashville session players Mark Prentice (bass) and Matt Prentice (drums, percussion). The album was recorded in a mad six days of sessions at Mastermind Studio. Mixed, designed and packaged over the following months, the album titled One Day Closer was released in the CD and Digital formats in May 2019.
The CD, consisting of 12 strong and versatile songs written and performed by Anglum Mock & Greene, is destined to become an audience favorite. With an intoxicating Americana mix of country, folk, bluegrass and folk-rock, along with timeless ballads, this collection of AMG songs fully demonstrates the trio’s songwriting talents, while highlighting the vocal blend and the fine acoustic playing of the new trio. This debut album from Anglum Mock & Greene is now available at the finest recorded music and instrument shops and selected venues around the country. The CD will also be available online soon from Amazon and CD Baby purchase sites.
Sean Anglum has been a dedicated student of Pop Culture since his childhood. Nurtured by his classical pianist mother and inspired by the Three Bs (Beatles, Beach Boys and Byrds), he found that music came naturally, and he has followed that singer/songwriter calling, even as he carved out a successful career in Public Relations and Event Production. He has also lectured extensively on music and Pop Culture history.
As a singer/songwriter, he has had his songs performed and recorded by a variety of artists in genres from Country and Folk to Rock’n’Roll. Anglum nearly grabbed the hit song ‘golden ring’ when his song “Café Lights” was optioned for the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in the 1980’s. Though eventually left behind by the Dirt Band, “Café Lights” continues to be an audience favorite where ever it is performed. Along with his catalogue of songs, Anglum currently brings his talents of lyricism, harmony and arrangement to Anglum Mock & Greene (aka AMG), which brings together powerhouse songwriters and performers Cindy Wheeler Greene and Lewis Mock, along with Anglum. A natural front man, Sean lets his humor, insight and vast Pop Culture knowledge bring life to each AMG performance.
Lewis Mock began performing professionally at eight years of age. For 26 years he was the house guitarist at the Broadmoor International Hotel and Resort (the oldest 5-star Hotel in the U.S.A.). During his long professional musical career he has opened for numerous internationally known artists including the Temptations, Reba McEntire, The Kingston Trio, Barbara Mandrell, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Bernadette Peters. He has performed with award-winning artists: Melissa Manchester, Maureen McGovern, Debby Boone, Linda Purl, and Suzy Bogguss, as well as Jim Hall, Elvin Bishop, Jim Salestrom, Nelson Rangell, and John Denver's Band. He has performed more than 11,000 professional gigs, which have included all styles of music.
His list of awards and achievements is extensive and includes recognition in the American and Music City Song Festivals, performances with the Colorado Springs Symphony, at the Pikes Peak Jazz Festival, and the Newport of the Rockies Jazz Festival. In 2018 he was inducted into the Kansas Music Hall of Fame. He has performed on award-winning national television commercials, movie soundtracks, and recordings. His licks have been published in Guitar Player Magazine. For ten years he was a Professor at the Colorado Springs Conservatory teaching guitar and musicianship, and in the last few years has been an instructor at the Colorado Roots Music Camp. Lewis has been an artist endorsee for Ovation and Gibson guitars, Matchless amplifiers, and Fishman Electronics.
Cindy Wheeler Greene was a founding member of the iconic Colorado Springs band Fall River Road through the 1970s. In the early 80s she left her home in Colorado for Muscle Shoals AL, where she learned her way around a studio singing publishing demos and session background vocals, and learning the craft of songwriting from the great writers of that town. She spent time singing backup for country legend Tammy Wynette, zigzagging across the country on a tour bus. She ended up in Nashville, where she worked for a number of publishing companies and had songs recorded by a variety of artists, including a big hit for Lari White with her song “Now I Know,” which was a hit single and was played on the radio more than a million times. Cindy was a winner of the prestigious Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk songwriting competition in 1998. Cindy’s songs are a reflection of her life, her loves, and the lessons she’s learned along the way. This past year, Cindy moved back to Colorado Springs, the one place that has always felt like home, and is back working with the musicians who have remained her friends and collaborators since her first days in this business.
