Luke O’Shea feels a strong connection to the land. As a teenager and throughout his early twenties, he escaped Sydney’s sheltered Sutherland Shire to join the throng of back packers bumming around Australia, New Zealand, North America, Asia and Europe. During what Luke describes as ‘his glorious wasted years’, he developed a fascination and respect for these varied lands and their unique people, absorbing their many stories and universal truths.
In subsequent years as a touring musician his passion deepened.
In 2012, Luke stole his wife and three children away in a beat up old caravan to explore inland Australia and the awe-inspiring ‘Top End’, proudly passing on the gypsy gene. Three years later with the eldest approaching her mid-teens, he and his wife seized a rapidly closing window of opportunity to spend another four months together traveling through the ancient Kimberly breathing in the spacious and powerful beauty of North Western Australia.
It was an adventure that would inspire the compelling sixth studio album ‘Caught Up In The Dreaming’ from the much awarded and respected singer-songwriter.
Caught Up In The Dreaming was mostly recorded in South Eastern Queensland at the studio of Luke’s co-producer Benjy Pocock. Two songs – ‘Stronger Than Nicotine’ and ‘Catch You’ were co-produced with Matt Fell in Sydney.
Six time Golden Guitar winning singer-songwriter Luke O’Shea – ‘Caught Up In The Dreaming’ out now on Compass Bros Records through Universal Music Australia.
