Paddy Casey has just announced a show at The Garbo’s venue in Castlebar. Casey who just released his new single titled 'Everything Must Change' from his upcoming new album due to be released in 2017 will be performing at the Castlebar venue on January 14.
Paddy Casey is an Irish singer-songwriter from Dublin. He got his first guitar when he was 12 and left home soon after and began busking and gigging for about 12 years. At about the age of 24 he was approached by Sony A&R scout Hugh Murray at the International Bar in Dublin, while performing at the singer/songwriter night hosted by Dave Murphy. Sony gave Casey some studio time in Sun Studios, Dublin, where he recorded nine tracks in two days. Sony decided it liked the tracks so much that it wanted to release them as they were. It offered Paddy a recording contract. He was signed by Sony, and was eventually taken in by U2’s management company, Principle Management. Casey released his first album Amen (So Be It ) in 1999. This album was produced by Pat Donne and was certified triple platinum in Ireland and did fairly well worldwide.
Casey returned in 2003 with the multi-platinum album, Living. It spawned the Irish chart hits 'Saints and Sinners', 'The Lucky One', 'Bend Down Low', and 'Want It Can't Have It'. Living spent the majority of the year in the top 10, climbing to the top of the charts 21 weeks after its initial release. In 2004 he won his first of two consecutive Meteor Irish Music Awards for Best Irish Male. In 2005, Casey Toured the Living album extensively in Ireland and abroad, highlights including a headline concert at the Heineken Green Energy Festival, and also supported U2 on their Vertigo tour, performing in Ireland, Scotland, and Norway. Since then Paddy has played numerous venues across Ireland and Europe and this is a show not to be missed. Tickets are on sale now from Downtown Records, Hogs Heaven Bar, and www.tickets.ie
