Album Tracks – Listen to Samples
“My new album Off the Carousel was released on September 17, 2021. More than any other album I have ever done, this one encapsulates a mood, a whole experience. I wanted the album to reflect my life’s journey, on roads both rough and smooth.
The title Off the Carousel reflects these experiences and a myriad of related thoughts –
Is it a feeling of dizziness and weak-leggedness to finally stand on terra firma?
Is it leaving something behind?
Is it finally a realization of what is real?
Is life’s ride slowing down, with gratitude for the exhilaration and with so much hope for those whose journey is beginning?
I don’t know really. Maybe it’s all of these emotions that enrich and add texture to our lives.
Please listen to the samples on this page. I will let you know when the full album is available to download or stream, or to purchase a physical copy.
I would love to hear what you think of it.” June Garber
