Anglum Mock & Greene’s intoxicating Americana mix of country, folk, bluegrass, folk-rock, and timeless ballads sparkle with brilliant songwriting talent, a gorgeous vocal blend, and fine acoustic playing.
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.
As 2019 dawned, the trio headed to Nashville to record what would be not only their first full-length album, but also a testament to their songwriting craft. The album, One Day Closer, was recorded in a mad six days of sessions, and released in May.
Pop culture fiend Sean Anglum was nurtured by his classical-pianist mother and inspired by the Three B’s (Beatles, Beach Boys and Byrds). His original songs have been performed and recorded by a variety of country, folk, and rock artists. Anglum nearly grabbed the hit-song “golden ring” when his song “Café Light” was optioned for the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band in the 1980s. “Café Light” continues to be an audience favorite where ever it is performed.
Lewis Mock began performing professionally at eight years of age. For 26 years he was the house guitarist at The Broadmoor. He has opened for the Temptations, Reba McEntire, The Kingston Trio, Barbara Mandrell, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Bernadette Peters, and has performed with 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.
Mock’s legacy includes recognition from the American and Music City Song Festivals, and 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. He taught for 10 years 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.
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 for Muscle Shoals, Alabama, where she sang publishing demos and session background vocals, and learned songwriting from the greats. She sang backup for Tammy Wynette, zigzagging across the country on a tour bus. She ended up in Nashville, where she worked for publishing companies and had songs recorded by many artists, including a big hit for Lari White with her song, “Now I Know,” which 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. Now she has moved back to Colorado Springs, the one place that has always felt like home, and is working with musicians who have remained her longtime friends and collaborators.
