To support this project visit KICKSTARTER LUKE SLOTT
Super encouraging my blog followers to support this wonderful album project of Luke Slott.
There are some beautiful rewards for your support such as having Luke visit your community, or a skype hangout – but most of all a copy of the album.
Luke has been humbled and thrilled by the support, but many of us are not surprised because his musical talent and dedication to spiritual things, just speaks for itself.
The album is already definitely happening, but now the goal is to produce music videos for the songs.
“Growing up in Ireland, music was in the air. My childhood was a medley of my father playing in jazz clubs, my uncle playing in traditional Irish music sessions and my brother’s homemade hip-hop beats. I began writing songs in my teens and spent most of my youth playing in bands around Ireland.
In my early 20s, I discovered the teachings of the Bahá’í Faith and began writing music to go with the Bahá’í Writings – writings about the unity of mankind and the need for universal peace.
Singing the Bahá’í Writings has made me think about music in new ways – it’s made me realise that music can be used as a force for good in the world – a tool for bringing people together and helping people to understand themselves and each other. For me, making music has become a way of offering a positive message to society through art.
Over the last several years, I’ve had the immense privilege of traveling to over 20 countries to sing and play in an amazing variety of places – from Westminster Parliament in London to the hottest corners of the Arabian Peninsula. The love and support I have received on my travels has been truly life-changing, and my one dream is simple: to make music that brings people together.”
