Irish Music Sensation Paddy Casey to perform at McGettigan’s
See Irish music sensation, Paddy Casey in Dubai for one night only on Friday 4th March 2011.
Patrick Casey is an Irish singer-songwriter from Dublin. He was discovered by Sony Music’s head scout Hugh Murray at the International Bar in Dublin, while performing at the singer/songwriter night. Paddy was signed by Sony and eventually taken in by U2's management company, Principle Management.
He released his first album Amen (So Be It) in 1999. This album was produced by Pat Donne and was certified double platinum. Casey played a range of different instruments in the time spent recording it, and the track Winter's Fire featured Mundy as a guest guitarist. Sweet Suburban Sky surfaced the following year on the soundtrack to the award winning US TV teen drama Dawson's Creek. Paddy received nominations for Best Irish Songwriter and Best Male Singer at the Hot Press Awards. Hot Press readers themselves voted the album Best Debut Album, as well as voting Paddy the year’s Most Promising Act and nominating him in seven other end of the year categories. Touring saw Casey providing support to artists like R.E.M., Ian Brown, Ani DiFranco and The Pretenders.
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 (in 2004). Living spent the majority of the year in the top ten, 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. He also garnered good reviews for a performance at that year's Oxegen Festival. 2004 saw Living confirmed as the highest selling Irish album of the year. He had a week long residency at the Olympia Theatre. The year ended with a sold out performance at Dublin's RDS.
In 2005 Paddy supported U2 on their Vertigo tour, performing in Ireland, Scotland, and Norway.
