Default New album!

Hey AGF, my name is Luke. I would love for you to check out my newest release.

Surely You Are There is a ten-track album of original arrangements that invite the listener to pause and reflect. Recorded at home in Nashville, TN, the result is an album that contains songs that create space for the listener to be still. I wouldn't call my playing prodigious or legendary; my goal is to let the melody speak for itself, even if I am not a flashy player.

Doug Young mixed and mastered the songs. I am very grateful for his contributions to this album!

I hope you'll check it out! Available on all music platforms.

Must feel great to have finished it and have it out in the world. Are any of the tracks available on youtube? Congratulations!

You might want to mention you recordings on the Show and Tell part of the forum.

A direct link to the tunes:

Congrats on that. I know how much work that requires. Smooth playing and consistently smooth and clean sound on all the tunes.

Sure can! I used one guitar on all the tracks.
It's a 2011 Carter-Maschal 000-37, Adi/Cocobolo. I got it used on Ebay and it's one of the best purchases I've made!
It has some bumps and bruises, but it still plays great and sounds oh so sweet in front of mics.
Ben Maschal is now with Pre*War guitars.
His old website is still up and has lots of fun guitar nerd stuff:

Your music is delightful. Kind of makes me think everything's going to be OK when everything's not OK.
