Happy New Year!

Dear Friends, Fans & Family...
First of all, a huge THANK YOU to everyone who bought our new Holiday album, “All These Gifts.”  It was a beautiful, arduous, and ultimately very fulfilling project for us. We hope the music enhanced and illuminated your Christmas as much as it did ours.
The Big Re-Do.
Maybe all artists are a little crazy….but we spent so much time, energy, and money creating this collection of songs that we wanted it to be as perfect as possible. After we got our first shipment of CDs back from the manufacturers in early November, we listened again carefully, and realized we needed to make improvements to the over-all sound. This was slightly horrifying for about 15 minutes. Then we decided it was worth it to go back into the studio to re-mix and re-master the recording. We love the way it ended up.
So now we want to make sure you get the new improved version. The packaging with the silver discs is the new improved version, but if the disc itself has the evergreen pattern we want to offer you the upgraded version for free.  We can send you a download link for the digital version or a physical CD.  Please send us an email with your request:  info@garrett-martin.com.
And now, at last, with all the glitter and dazzle of Christmas and New Years behind us, it is a relief to bundle up and walk into the mid-winter quiet of January, relishing the possibilities that might arise out of the silence. 
A couple of years ago we wrote a song with Lisa Aschmann called “The Spaces In Between Us.”  It won a Positive Music Award in 2013, and shortly after that, Cypress Choral Publishing distributed an arrangement for choirs. 

First you are welcome to listen to our version of the song.  And here’s a recent video of a Canadian high school choir.

The lyrics will serve as our New Years wish for all of you:
If I could give one gift to you
As solid as the morning dew
A windowpane the light shines through
The spaces in between us
A gift for you my heart would bring
The sweet release of every thing
The breath I take before I sing
The spaces in between us
Trusting in what might arise
Without a thought preceding
As simple as a baby’s sighs
Resting and receiving
It’s not what keeps our souls apart
But what connects and dreams us
The vast potential of the heart
The spaces in between us
So I offer what my heart has found
The silent love that’s all around
A symphony without a sound
The spaces in between us
If I could give you more than this
Let it be Forever’s kiss
Mindful of my mindlessness
The spaces in between us

Love from Jan & JD
