Internationally renowned artists from abroad also feature alongside talented and exciting newcomers. Canadian Ron Sexsmith contributes a fine moment, as does Lloyd Cole who does a remarkable reworking of “Brand New Friend”. There are also remarkable performances from guitarist Pierre Bensusan and Idaho born Josh Ritter. Up and coming stars like powerful blues artist Chaz De Paulo, the hypnotic, compelling voice of Charis’ John Connolly and the vastly underrated Brando fly the flag for new artists.

All of the featured tracks were recorded by Richards and are just a snapshot of the treasure trove of original music that Galway Bay FM has had the pleasure of broadcasting over the past year. Of the recording Richards says, “I believe the sessions have only scratched the surface and judging by the outstanding performances from Glen Hansard on “Revelate”, Damien Rice’s “Woman like a man”, Mundy’s “Mayday” and The Saw Doctors “Clare Island” to name but a few, the journey continues...”

InunDations is released on Friday May 31st and contains 37 stunning tracks for the special price of just €20, with all proceeds going to The Samaritans. It is also being released in DVD style casing and is sure to rapidly become a collector’s item.

"Tom Dunne Selection"

Artist: Various Artists
Released: 2004
Format: CD
Copyright: The Sunday Times

Tracks:
01. Thin Lizzy - Whiskey In The Jar
02. Horslips - Dearg Doom
03. The 4 Of Us - Sunlight
04. Light A Big Fire - You Can Love A Woman
05. The Frames - Star Star (Live)

07. Rory Gallagher - Tatoo'd Lady (Live)
08. Mic Christopher - Looking For Jude
09. Sinead O'Connor - My Lagan Love
10. Snow Patrol - Batten Down The Hatch

"(Mic's) early band, the Mary Janes, had good moments but rather tedious half hours. When they dissolved, Christopher took to busking, often with Glen Hansard, the singer with The Frames. The result was a shift in how he wrote. Faced with the fickleness of a street audience, Christopher worked harder at writing songs that would keep them listening. This lead to his 2002 album Skylarkin', which included both Looking for Jude and the recent (sadly posthumous) Heyday."
