An Afternoon Salon featuring Jan Garrett and JD Martin as they present their “Heart of Harmony” concert. The duo is multi-award-winning singer songwriters who live and create their music in the mountains of Colorado near Aspen. Both are seasoned performers, wise teachers and compassionate creative guides who teach with a twinkle, and inspire by example. Harmony is an on-going practice for this married couple who are also artistic collaborators and business partners. Their music is rich and intelligent, a velvet-hammer wake-up call as satisfying to the soul as it is to the ear….songs to open the heart and refresh the spirit.
JD Martin has written five Number One, and 10 Top Ten, country and pop hit singles, and his songs have been recorded by such luminaries as Reba McEntire, Terri Clark, B.J. Thomas, Peter Cetera and Kathy Mattea. JD’s velvet voice and signature piano style are the embodiment of heart & soul.
Jan Garrett is a jazz singer with a poet’s soul, a masterful teacher, performance coach, wilderness vision quester and (yes) Certified laughing Instructor who has toured with Steve Martin and John Denver, and has appeared on the Tonight Show and in Rolling Stone.
Stylistically their primarily piano-based music winds through pop and gospel, jazz, folk, soul and country…..but it’s the rich vocal harmonies, lyrical depth, and their comfortably compelling stage presence that define their magnetic appeal. Jan and JD are all about generosity of heart and soul, artfully wrapped up in musical excellence.
Together Garrett and Martin have written and recorded nine albums of original music and have won multiple awards at the Positive Music Awards for many years running. Their album, “Already Home,” was awarded the “Seal of Excellence” by the Positive Music Association. They are releasing their newest album, “Better Angels” in early February, and the title for this album is from Abraham Lincoln’s first inaugural address in 1861. The February 10 concert will feature strong and inspiring songs from this new album, along with other previous album favorites focusing on different aspects of love. www.Garrett-Martin.com
