A Picture of Luke Goddard

In the Summer of 2009 after having earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature, Luke had the idea of starting a music blog that would promote Georgia, independent talent especially, but maintaining a broad focus on artists and bands across the globe. The idea soon became a reality and as they say, the rest is his in the books. Luke currently resides in Macon, GA and is fortunate to be married to a beautiful woman named Drew. She said yes to him for the world to see and the two a few years later became the proud parents of Lennox and Hines. You can follow Luke on Twitter and soon realize that he's an avid fan of the Atlanta Braves, Georgia Bulldogs, Atlanta Falcons, and the Atlanta Hawks.
