LUKE MAYNARD ● DESOLATION SOUND

Luke's ambitious début CD, DESOLATION SOUND, is a double-length folk/roots album with a concept. Tying the public & private struggles of small-town Canadians to the traditions of the folk festival scene that fed his wide-ranging musical education, Desolation Sound chronicles the rise and fall of two important chapters of Canada's history & heritage.

Written, performed, recorded, engineered, and produced alone, Luke's first commercial release is a milestone years in the making. Stepping out of his role as a sideman, Luke lets his heartbreaking lyrics and emotive acoustic guitar do the heavy lifting on this prodigious, precocious album of vintage-style folk music brought forward for a new generation.

For those who love the feel of a CD in their hands, the slick retro look of a vinyl-themed spinny disc, or the pleasure of holding the liner notes in your hands, I still have a limited run of compact discs available. Barring unprecedented demand, this is the first and last time Desolation Sound will exist on physical media. Get it while you can!
