Padraig Jack was born into a musical family from the Aran islands. His dad is the songwriter Barry Ronan and he is the nephew of the Irish poet and Aosdána member Mary O’Malley. A native of Aran which has produced writers Liam O Flaithearta, Máirtín Ó Direáin and Breandán Ó hEithir, Padraig is proudly bilingual both as a conversationalist and a songwriter.

A songwriter and composer who writes and sings meaningful songs on guitar and piano in Gaelic and English, his debut album ‘Making Sand’ was named the RTE Radio Album of the Week garnering critical acclaim from Hot Press, Rock’n’Reel magazine (UK) and The Alternate Root (US) and the title track was nominated for ‘Best Original Track’ at the RTE Folk Awards. Padraig is currently recording his second album with renowned producer John Reynolds (Sinead O Connor, Damien Dempsey) and will release the first single of his upcoming second album in Spring 2023.

Padraig tours regularly in Ireland and the UK and is currently on a perpetual tour in the UK with Miles Hunt of The Wonder Stuff and will tour Wales and the Basque country in early 2023. After a successful run of a weekly residency at Joe Wattys in the Aran islands in summer 2022 Padraig will be returning again as well as playing shows all around Ireland in summer 2023.
