Since the release of his new album ‘This New Morning’, Luka Bloom has captured the hearts of many with his extraordinary singing and writing skills. His song ‘A Seed Was Sown’, which articulates with wondrous lyrics, the impact of the Queen’s visit to him and to Ireland last year. The lasting impression on the song was made apparent following endless radio requests:
“ It’s rarely that I play the same song two days in a row. But, the demand for this (A Seed Was Sown) have been absolutely overwhelming” – Rónan Collin, RTE Radio One
