He'll be bringing the Dublin Gospel Choir along with him...
The Hot Press Newsdesk, 21 Jun 2012
A returning Paddy Casey has just announced his plans for a special one-off show in The Olympia Theatre, Dublin. The troubadour will be joined in his hometown by the Dublin Gospel Choir on November 15, where they'll lend extra voice to all the hits and fan favourites over the course of the evening. Casey, who has kept fairly quiet for some five years, will also introduce the audience to the new material he has been working on.
Tickets for the November 15 performance are priced at €23 and go on sale tomorrow, Friday June 21, at 9am from Ticketmaster outlets and www.ticketmaster.ie.

Paddy Casey’s music has improved dramatically since he first emerged, the David Gray-isms of yore being replaced with something far more ambitious and colourful. ‘Addicted To Company’ incorporates swooping strings, the odd splash of brass, and even some gospel-flavoured backing vocals. This has an ambitious feel to it and could be huge.

Sometimes it feels as though Ireland is suffering an overdose of bed-sit earnestness. For a generation of songwriters, elegant mooching has acquired the character of a national pastime. Amidst the apparently bottomless onslaught of weepy self-consciousness, Paddy Casey cuts a solitary figure. Although no less gushing than his peers, the Dublin singer boasts songwriting chops to match.

Released in 1999 Paddy Casey’s debut album went double-platinum, establishing him as one of Ireland’s brightest prospects. but the intervening four years have seen that crown slip, as a succession of homegrown singer songwriters battled their way into contention, outstripping him in terms of record sales – and hard graft. now casey is back in the frame, with his long-waited follow-up, the cheekily titled Living – an album that sees him gloriously back on top of his game. why did it take four years to make? the answer to that burning question may go back even further. because Paddy Casey’s life story is truly a remarkable one.
