His most recent album Refuge is a statement showing the painful truth of our world. He doesn’t shy away from themes like homelessness and climate change. His voice and lyrics are as sharp as they were 30 years ago, although times have changed.
For his album Refuge, Luka Bloom recorded quite a few songs. Bloom considered the year preceding his writing the album a tough year for the world. According to Bloom, the planet has been an angry place since 2016, which has people responding to it in different ways. This motivated him to back away and find peace and quiet. The songs resulting from this sabbatical have become a safe haven for Bloom. Hence the title Refuge, an apt description for this raw but beautiful album.
