Having been at the forefront of the Irish music scene since his multi platinum selling debut album Amen (So Be It), Paddy Casey has just released a brand new single Won’t Take Much, alongside announcing the release of his fifth album Turn This Ship Around, a double album due to be released this summer.
Paddy Casey’s career has taken him all over the globe, touring with acts such as The Pretenders, R.E.M, Ian Brown, Blondie and Tracy Chapman.
Closer to home he has played all over Ireland, including sold-out Dublin Castle and RDS shows and a record-breaking week -ong run in The Olympia Theatre, alongside special guest spots with U2, Pearl Jam, Bob Dylan and more.
His latest song Won’t Take Much is a bouncy, uplifting, guitar-driven track bursting with brass and strings. Featuring on the first part of the forthcoming double album Turn This Ship Around, this single reflects the upbeat, electric, synth and guitar driven side to the album, while the second part embodies a more laid-back, acoustic vibe.
“Won’t Take Much is an independent production, recorded and produced in my own home studio,” said Paddy.
“To capture the energy of a new song ‘coming to life’ the single was written and recorded in the same day with friends and bandmates being called on later to add strings and horns.”
Paddy Casey’s hugely successful 1998 debut album Amen (So Be It) achieved many international highlights including some tracks being featured in American television shows such as Dawson’s Creek and Roswell.
Further establishing himself as one of the country’s most successful artists, his second album Living’went on to become one of the biggest ever selling albums in Ireland (approximately 15 times platinum).
This was followed by the release of Addicted To Company, Part 1, with this album seeing Paddy Casey continue to tour across America, performing on The Late Show with David Letterman and securing a week-long slot on MTV. After the release of this album Paddy Casey decided that it was time to part ways with his record label and go independent in order to let himself and his music veer off in any direction the wind carried them, resulting in his first release in 2012, The Secret Life Of, achieving platinum status.
Won’t Take Much is out now across all digital platforms.
