Padraig Jack Short Info

Despite growing up in a musical family, Padraig Jack was a late beginner when it came to playing music. Born and raised on the isolated Aran Islands off the west coast of Ireland, Padraig began writing songs in his early 20s and soon began to feel that singing and, in particular song writing was his most precious life endeavour. While continually second guessing himself, he spent some time studying and living life while focusing only some of his energy on his music. Rightly or wrongly, Padraig was not content with recording his music until he had spent a considerable time learning his craft and discovering his own voice.

Padraig Jack aims to write songs about his own experiences or his observations of the world around him and he aims to sing in such a way that the soul of a song evokes its intended or indeed, unintended feelings in the listener.

Learning his craft performing on the Aran Islands and Clifden as well as on the Galway singer-songwriter scene, Padraig has thus far opened for Donal Lunny and Triad, John Spillane, and The 4 of Us. Padraig’s music takes some inspiration from Celtic and Irish Folk music, which is understandable as he is from the Gaelic-speaking Aran Islands, however there are Soul and Country influences also which contribute to his unique, essentially contemporary, style. His music was once described after a gig in Galway as “West of Ireland, Celtic, Adult Contemporary” :)

Padraig is currently recording his debut release which is being produced by Vinnie Kilduff; who has been associated with The Waterboys, U2, Sinead O Connor, and should be ready for release in early 2016.
