“With each successive album, Luka Bloom digs deeper and gazes wider… he is on top form.” – The Irish Times
Luka’s reputation as one of Irelands leading performing and recording artists is not hindered by his stunning new release. His first release of new material since ‘Eleven Songs’ (2009) carries on the high standard to which Bloom fans worldwide are accustomed. Bloom is at the top of his game with ‘THIS NEW MORNING’.
He has a catalog of quality recordings that would make any budding songwriter aspire to. The combination of his melodic thought provoking material, along with his incredible skill in reading and connecting with his audience on classics such as ‘The City of Chicago’ and ‘You couldn’t have come a better time…’ makes this praise worthy. His ability as a performer has received phenomenal praise, which has resulted in sell-out shows worldwide. This is a testament to a real troubadour who has worked and developed over many years into a true master of live performance.
Gifted Ennis born singer-songwriter Sabrina Dinan has toured with Luka Bloom in Australia, Europe and the US, which she cites as the most amazing experience she could have received as an aspiring full-time musician. Sabrina recently appeared on a tribute album to the late John Martyn alongside artists such as David Gray, Beck and Paulo Nutini. On this album she covers his song “Certain Surprise”.
