About this Event

PADDY CASEY

Paddy Casey received 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 9 tracks in 2 days. Sony decided that they liked the tracks so much that they wanted to release them as they were. They 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 played a range of different instruments in the short 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. Living was produced by Fred De Faye, Paddy Casey and Pat Donne. It spawned the Irish chart hits Saints and Sinners, The Lucky One (in 2003) 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, 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.

He returned to Ireland to finish the album in his kitchen. He worked on the rest of the album with the producer from "AMEN" Pat Donne. Titled Addicted To Company (Part One), it was released in Ireland on 7 September 2007, and in the US on 1 April 2008. In March 2008, MTV US promoted him as MTV Buzzworthy Artist on their TV channel and website and on its student-led brand, MTVU. He toured the album extensively and also toured with KT Tunstall and Augustana amongst others.

After returning from the US Paddy chose to part ways with Sony and Paul McGuinness and for the next few years he began writing and recording at home.

MUNDY

In 1993 aged 18, Mundy moved to Dublin from his home town Birr, Co.Offaly. He began busking and frequenting Dublin’s open mike circuit. After a break up with a girlfriend he penned some of him most loved songs like ‘Gin and Tonic Sky’ and ‘To you i Bestow’ (which later featured on Baz Luhrmans ‘Romeo and Juliet’ movie soundtrack).

It was these first songs that drummed up massive interest from a lot of major Record Labels in the U.K and that’s how Mundy ended up getting signed to Sony Epic Records. Jelly Legs was released in October 1996. He also signed a publishing deal with Warner Chappell Music.

Since 1996 Mundy has released 8 Albums showcasing his eclectic styles in music from Rock,Americana,Folk and Indie. Six of these albums have been in the Top Ten in Ireland including ‘Raining Down Arrows’ which went straight in at number 1!

Mundy has enjoyed gold and multi platinum record sales in Ireland and also picked up Meteor awards for ‘Best Male’ and ‘Most Downloaded Song’ for 2 years running with Steve Earle’s ‘Galway Girl’ which he covered live with Sharon Shannon with no plan or agenda…and the rest-as the say in History!

Mundy has being touring ever since 1996 both Solo and with his Band and has played all over Europe, U.K, USA, Australia, Asia and earlier this year he toured in Canada for the first time.

He has played support to many of his influences like Bob Dylan,Neil Young, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris,R.E.M,White Stripes,The Waterboys and the Pogues to name a few heavy weights.

After a last minute promotion to Headline Act at Webster Hall in New York at a fundraiser he was invited to perform for Barrack Obama at the White House as part of their St.Patricks Day celebrations and even got his pic with Barrack and his Wife for the second time! The first time was in Dublin off their first visit.

What does 2019 hold for the Singer Songwriter?

“Well, there are a lot of new songs written that are going down great live and i have more than enough for an album, but i am waiting to meet the right Doctor to do the operation with. I am in the process of making an E.P with Producer and old friend -Karl Odlum (Mic Christopher, Gemma Hayes, The Frames, Interference) for a winter release He says confidently.”
