ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Garrison's impressive career in the music industry includes 10-years with London Records, Inc. as a producer, engineer and A&R Director. He handled production for such artists as the renowned Texas band, Greezy Wheels, legendary jazz pianist, Erroll Garner and prolific singer/songwriter, Leslie Pearl. While with London Records, Inc., he worked in various roles with The Moody Blues, The Rolling Stones, Al Green, Dave Edmunds, John Mayall, and others. Garrison was profiled in SongLink International, the premier music industry resource for publishers and songwriters.

In addition to heating up some of New York City's hottest showcase venues (CBGB's, The C-Note, DownTime, Acme Underground), The Garrison Project headlined at Toads Place, one of the premier music halls in the country. Fox-TV/Channel 61 aired a special news report on the band and TGP rocked a Guitars For Life benefit concert filmed by The Learning Channel. Always close to his singer/songwriter roots, Garrison performed several of his original songs at Nashville's legendary Bluebird Cafe.

Garrison's songwriting partner, Betty-Lynn White, is an insightful and imaginative poet and lyricist. Her poems and prose have inspired most of the original songs performed and recorded by The Garrison Project. Betty-Lynn's musical influences are diverse and she has a unique ability to give any music the perfect words and story.

MuzikReviewz.com and SouthBoundBeat.com): "Garrison Leykam and Betty-Lynn White (are) both exceptional songwriters/song lyricist. Together these two are unbeatable...the 'dynamic duo' of the music industry." Here are some early reviews telling why:

Distant Eyes (Sailing Away)
Rock Zone.com: "A tranquil, melodic piece exploring the progression of time...It's as if a thunderstorm has just ended, and as the dark clouds move on, a slight sprinkle has erupted. Standing in the sprinkle we forget about the storm for the time being, 'Sailing Away in the surreal ambience of it all."
Great American Songwriting Contest: "Strong imagery in this lyric and I like (Garrison's and Betty-Lynn's) music a lot...good talent!"
MuzikReviewz.com: "one of those tunes that catches your heart and holds onto it...a beautiful song."

For You
The Hour: "a (Garrison) original composition, won an international songwriting award.Brian Adams would be proud when he heard (Garrison) profess to his true love what he'd do for her."
PerformerMag.Com: "will have you reminiscing of junior high dances."
SouthBoundBeat.com: "absolutely a grammy winner...out of this world."

Questions In The Night
PerformerMag.Com: (Lyricist and poet Betty-Lynn White) "adds a tremendous amount of imagery to every song...'It's three o'clock in the morning and I'm watching you sleep / Asking myself the questions about the secrets you keep.'

Can You Hear Me Calling
The Hour: "a catchy tune...(Garrison's) lyrics speak like a bugle call for lost love blending with a commandeering melody."
Loggins Promotions radio test: 4 stars****...
PerformerMag.Com: "perfectly crafted jam-pop."

I Can't Take That
The Hour: "the bluesy answer to Jennifer Lopez's 'Love Don't Cost A Thing,' crying: 'Baby, I don't care about materialism, just be you.'

This album is really hot - simply buy it
This CD from The Garrison Project has something for everyone, the songs are all well crafted and diverse in musical style so it reaches out to a wide audience and truly showcases the wonderfully talented partnership of Garrison and Betty-Lynn as songwriters. My personal favourite is Sailing Away which is an inspiring song. But take a listen to this album and I am sure you will find something to excite you. Its been in my car for months and always gets played!!!
