Catholic Music Spotlight: Luke Spehar Solace Interview
Luke Spehar’s Background
Luke Spehar grew up in a small, rural community north of St. Paul, Minnesota, and found himself inspired by the simple, natural beauty of the outdoors. Drawing from these and other common human experiences like love, suffering, failures, and triumphs, Luke began writing songs at the age of 16 and composed all of the music on his debut album, Be still, before he graduated high school. He continued to write music throughout his college years, a time he devoted to discerning a potential call to the Catholic priesthood. However, in January 2015, Luke was called to the vocation of marriage. He and his wife, Elizabeth Yetzer, are currently expecting their second baby, but that hasn’t slowed Luke’s music career down. In fact, he has exciting news to share with his fans.
