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.
3 cds.
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!
