O'Shea Wins His 7th Golden Guitar at the 2017 CMAA Awards

2017 Heritage Song of the Year

THE OLD MAN’S SHED – THE 2017 CMAA HERITAGE SONG OF THE YEAR

By | News | No Comments

Luke O’Shea along with his long time friend John Krsulja were named Golden Guitar winners for the 2017 CMAA Heritage Song of the Year.
This takes Lukes tally to seven Golden Guitars – four for the coveted Heritage Song of the Year.
The Old Man’s Shed is the fourth single off Luke O’Shea’s acclaimed album Caught Up In The Dreaming – which was also a 2017 Finalist for ‘Album of the Year’.
Luke said of the win – “It was such a magical moment for John and I – and for what is a very special song for the both of us. We wrote the Old Man’s Shed to celebrate our fathers and to sing up the generations of pre-Bunnings Australian gentlemen, who had that Shed / Shrine somewhere in the backyard, where they would work, fix and make things with precious tools that were slowly accrued, collected and rarely shared!” Luke continues, “We knew this song was very special due to it’s abiltiy to connect deeply with audiences of all ages, sex, colour, cult, creed, and it’s quite magical to see the tears and laughter flow – somehow all within a three and a half minute song.”

Very happy to share the news that my latest CD – Caught Up In The Dreaming – has been announced a three time finalist in the upcoming 2017 CMAA Golden Guitar Awards, for Album of the Year, Male Artist of the Year & Heritage Song of the Year – for the song ‘The Old Man’s Shed’ written with long time friend Johnny K.

The fact people and my peers have stolen time from their busy lives to listen and connect with the stories and songs on this album – that myself and co-producer Benjy Pocock – invested so much of our lives (& maximum joy) into – is supremely satisfying and humbling!

Sincere thanks goes out to all who listened, connected and voted! Your faith in me truly encourages me to keep on keeping on and singing up this remarkable land & the amazing people who live upon it!!

And if I don’t get the chance to say it in person – Merry Christmas & a Happy & Safe New Year!!

Cheers,

Luke 🙂
