Tommy Black and the Twelve Days of Lucy (album)


Feeling a bit camera shy


ackling any project by yourself can be a lonely process but that is how it all began for Wexford's Paul Creane when he embarked on recording his debut album, Tommy Black And The Twelve Days Of Lucy. Help soon appeared in the guise of a (bearded) angel, Donal "Dodo" Byrne. Fortunately, this angel was a multi-instrumentalist with a recording studio who was looking to embark on a musical project to further his own recording experience. The snowball was on its way down the mountain.

As with most independently-funded albums the road to completion was long but, like a story-arc straight out of a fantasy novel, the duo would make many talented friends along the way. Regular open sessions in local haunt The Sky & The Ground resulted in the addition of fellow songwriters Seamus Turner and Eugene Campbell to a blossoming live band that now included Dodo's three brothers (Footzy, Cillian and Lorcan).What began as a solo project had now become quite a family and it is this ethos that saw the culmination of what we now all know today as The Changing Band.

The Changing Band no longer simply play Paul Creane songs but also original numbers penned by each of its members (with both Turner and Campbell currently in the process of recording their own "solo" albums) under the moniker Sons Of The Sky. Honorary inductees of this ever-changing group include Ian Doyle, Mick Flannery and many more. Expect to hear the phrase "And this is x by X & The Changing Band" quite alot over the years to come.

The release of Tommy Black And The Twelve Days Of Lucy in April 2011 marks the beginning of a new chapter in the book of The Changing Band, a book that, once you begin, is just so damn difficult to put down.
