Margaret Glaspy's New Record "Took 26 Years To Make" & Here's Why You Should Hear It This Friday (10/20)

By: Sierra Voss

This is your last chance to RSVP for Red Bull Sound Select’s show this Friday at Denver's Bluebird Theater, featuring headlining artist, Margaret Glaspy. Tickets are $5 if you hop on the RSVP list or $15 at the door (if the show doesn’t sell out). Glasby will be joined by openers Pearl Charles and The Still Tide. Show starts at 9:00pm! Will we see you there?


Glaspy, age 27, recently released her debut album, Emotions and Math in 2016. Glaspy stated she felt like it, “took 26 years to make this album”. We feel it was certainly worth the wait. Emotions and Math is on point, a tightly packaged album full of amazing songwriting and bright, energetic instrumentation. The album has a breezy grunge-rock vibe matched with Glaspy’s honest and raw representation of her life and the world that surrounds her:

“Looks like I near forgot who I was. To be who you want. Yes, I've been sitting silent. Because I thought you liked me quiet. But I don't wanna watch my mouth. No, I don't wanna act like that. Can't figure it out. I don't wanna hold you 'til I'm good and ready to. Oh I don't wanna be on pins and needles around you.”

Glaspy certainly sticks out from the bunch with her storytelling talents, album production quality and unique rock grunge vocals and instrumentation. Our advice: Get yourself to this show. If you need more convincing check out the song “You and I” from her album, Emotions and Math.
