When you're Ed Sheeran's hero and one half of cult underground folk hip hop act Nizlopi with a #1 single, you've got a tale to tell. Yet hope and triumph often sit alongside loss, self-doubt, anxiety and anger. Luke Concannons story is a complex one.After experiencing the highs of fame and success as a songwriter in his 20s, the subsequent heartbreak of losing his band and community was tough. He hitchhiked to Palestine, volunteering as a peace worker in the West Bank. After meeting the American classical singer Stephanie Hollenberg on holiday, he followed her to the USA where they married in 2018. His struggle back to a place of belonging has resulted in a deep understanding that it is the interplay of light and dark that make us whole. His first new album in 8 years (and only his second solo album), 'Ecstatic Bird in the Burning' is a mesmerizingly honest collection of songs written whilst staying on Grammy and Tony award winning song writer Anais Mitchell's farm. In the best tradition of his Irish roots, storytelling runs through his bones. Part love letter, part poem, part call to action, the album alternates between grief and zest for life, despair and hope, anger and love, destruction and growth. It explores the ecstasy of being alive, even (perhaps especially now) in a burning world. Recorded in New England, USA with Nashville producer James Prendergast and a group of superb musicians, Luke's poetic lyrics are set against glorious arrangements. Guitar, double bass, tanbur, drums, horns and vocal harmonies create a world where the journey rather than the destination is the ultimate goal.
