Wayne Garfield

Writer/Producer

A prolific songwriter/producer for three decades, Wayne Garfield etched a permanent place for himself in musical pop culture as a key contributor to the sound of the vaunted collective known as Change, a group which spawned a series of dance crossover hits and launched the career of Luther Vandross.

Garfield’s best known track for Change, “The Glow Of Love,” was omnipresent on the club scene in 1980 and refused to go away, enjoying another cover several years later by jazz/R&B chanteuse, Randy Crawford, and samples by several prominent hip-hoppers.

Several years ago, “The Glow Of Love” was given new life by superstar Janet Jackson, who remade it into her global smash, “All For You,” the title track from her album and tour which became a multi-platinum seller and one of the top radio songs of the year.

Garfield’s substantial catalog contains numerous R&B covers, including Aretha Franklin’s “Here We Go Again,” dance diva Candi Staton’s “When You Wake Up Tomorrow” and “Chance,” and Roy Ayers’s provocative “2000 Black.”
