Triple CD containing 50 tracks from across
WAVE UP TO THE SHORE
the past 50 years of songs either written
or learned by Luka Bloom
NEW RECORD RELEASE ON DECEMBER 8TH.
Back in May, I was singing at home. As I sang my song 'Wave up to the Shore',
I suddenly realised that it was 50 years old; written in 1972.
Then I began to think of other songs like 'Jenny of the Sun', or 'Bury my heart at Wounded Knee'
from the same period.
So, there and then I decided to record 50 songs from 1972 to 2022. 'Wave up to the Shore' is the first song.
The last song is 'Bea and Chayenne go walking'; an instrumental I wrote in Switzerland in August 2022.
And in between are a selection of songs and tunes from those 50 years..
Most are my own. A few are not. Some are songs I never sing live.
Some are songs I always sing live.
I love them all.
I remember writing or learning them all.
My friend Jon O'Connell came to the house in County Clare; and over a few days he recorded these solo
acoustic versions of almost all these songs.
Then I went to Brian Masterson in Dublin. We recorded a few more.
Then Brian mixed and mastered the songs, and here it is.
Myriam Riand and I agreed that the artwork and design for this record would be to simply name the songs.
And so it is.
17 songs and tunes on each cd.
I will tell stories of songs in the coming weeks, and it is great to simply announce the record's completion.
WAVE UP TO THE SHORE is available NOW to pre-order from www.lukabloom.com
Digital download also available to pre-order now.
Shipping begins on December 8th.
Because it would involve at least 6 records, there will be no vinyl version of this record.
Welcome to the world, Wave up to the Shore!
