In Life - Debriefed

This is a bittersweet post.luke garrett

I am glad to announce that Luke Garrett’s final four completed recordings are now available  – exclusively here at this website. These songs capture Luke at his expressive best, and I am certain every one of his fans will be moved by his masterful performances.

At the same time I am sad beyond words that these will be the last new recordings we ever will hear from one of the most marvelous singers ever. Every time I listen to them, Luke’s voice washes over me, and it is as if he is with us still. But he isn’t – and that makes saddens me all over again.

You can go to the webpage and read about the collection of songs.  There you can also listen to a short “sampler” demo.  Along with the four new recordings from Luke, we included a fifth song, which I wrote as a memorial to my friend. The EP download also comes with liner notes and some photos from the recording sessions.

Because Luke influenced a lot of church musicians, we are also making the sheet music and his Artist Performance Trax available. The Trax, the sheet music folio, and the five-song EP are all individual download products. They will come to your computer from a 3rd party company (Gumroad), insuring your purchases are secure and your downloads are hassle-free.

So it’s with genuinely mixed emotions that I offer to you Leaving Us to Say Goodbye – The Final Sessions.

    “Every time I listen to them, Luke’s voice washes over me, and it is as if he is with us still. But he isn’t – and that makes saddens me all over again.” Amen. Thank you for preserving and preparing these four. Impeccable musician. Humble servant

    I’ve been anticipating this recording. Already purchased, downloaded and listened. It’s a wonderful blessing to have these songs to remember Luke by.
    Thanks, Robert

      You’re welcome, David. I am the fortunate one – having the chance to work with Luke on these recordings. Please tell your like-minded music friends about them. I want as many people as possible to hear what Luke had to offer in the end.

    I had the great fortune to work with Luke in 1986. I was live sound engineer at FBC Belle Chasse, LA. He had just recorded the album “Luke Garrett”. I fell in love with his voice and with his music. I own a large number of his trax and sing them as often as i can. His life was too short, but the message will live forever.
