Hello and welcome to the Baha’i Blogcast with me your host, Rainn Wilson.
In this series of podcasts I interview members of the Baha’i Faith and friends from all over the world about their hearts, and minds, and souls, their spiritual journeys, what they’re interested in, and what makes them tick.
In this episode I interview the wonderful Luke Slott, a Baha'i singer and songwriter from Dublin, Ireland who has an equally wonderful head of hair. We talk about his musical background and how he became a Baha'i; how he first started composing music based on the Baha'i Writings and the new album he's just released during the month of the Baha'i Fast called 'Year of the Nightingale', which is dedicated to the bicentenary of the Birth of Baha’u’llah taking place this year. He tells us all about the fascinating book he's currently reading; what personal struggle he's currently trying to overcome, and what advice he would give to other artists and musicians. He also sings one of the songs from his new album live for us, and shares another one of them at the end of our beautiful conversation.
You can listen to songs from 'Year of the Nightingale' as they are released on Luke Slott's YouTube channel, and find out more about Luke Slott and his work on his website (lukeslott.wordpress.com) and on his Facebook page.
Also the book Luke mentions he's reading is called 'With Thine Own Eyes' and it can purchased here: http://amzn.to/2nkxolW
