James Cummins' album 'Bloom' is the first he has recorded under his own name. This debut album is made up solely of original instrumental pieces and the genres vary from bluegrass to celtic with a little newgrass and old-time flavour. Recorded live in James' living room the album gives a tip of the hat to the totally live and acoustic based recordings of Bill Monroe, the album's sound was also inspired by Bela Fleck's seminal album 'Drive' and by Chris Thile's most recent release "How to Grow a Woman from the Ground". 'Bloom' was recorded in two sessions and features James Cummins on mandolin, Shane Cook and Darrin Schott on fiddle, Graham Gould on guitar, Larry Johnston on Banjo and Donovan Bullen on upright Bass.
