Paddy Clegg is a 17 year old singer songwriter from Huyton, Liverpool.
From a very young age the teenager has had a passion for music. He was a drummer in several bands before picking up a guitar in 2013 and beginning to write his own material, recording in his bedroom and later gigging in and around the Liverpool area. Paddy quickly earned praise from the city’s music journalists and bloggers, which led to him signing with SWC Artist Management.
At the beginning of 2014, Paddy released his infectiously catchy debut single ‘Back to the Start’. The track was received very positively, receiving regular airplay on radio stations across the north west of England.
Paddy's sound has drawn comparisons to The La's, and Jake Bugg, yet he retains his own musical identity and is making a name for himself through his hugely accomplished musical compositions which belie his youth.
"The boy can sing, his melodies hit you where it hurts and his urgent sense of rhythm suggests lyrics and chords are written between tweets and snap chats. In other words, hes the sound of right now." - Alan O'hare (Liverpool Echo Mersey Blogs)
"His songs are fresh and honest. They grab the attention of the listener and in one of his songs 'Have You Ever Wondered?', you have a song that screams out, take me home and play me till the neighbours politely suggest that you might have an addiction problem." - Ian D Hall (Sound & Vision)
‘Let's Get By’ is available on iTunes and all other major digital online outlets. Released 30th January 2015, ‘Fly On The Wall Records’.
