PAT DAM SMYTH

"PAT DAM SMYTH'S debut album 'The Great Divide' has been hailed as a "modern masterpiece" and has received glowing reviews from The Independent, Q magazine, Irish Times , BBC Radio 2 and 6 music..and many more.

Born in N.IRELAND he moved to London, via Dublin, Liverpool, Athens and Los Angeles. He was lead singer of the legendary cult band SMOKEY ANGLE SHADES. After going solo in 2010 his music is a collection of thoughts on his travels , loves and losses, falling somewhere between Beck , Bowie and Lou Reed . People are beginning to take notice of his eclectic style and talent.

The Great Divide is an album that will stand the test of time, a snapshot of that roller coaster chapter in is career. Made in Belfast, produced by Portland's BARRETT LAHEY , featuring friends, a bulgarian busker, a choir and speaking part from TERRI HOOLEY of Good Vibrations legacy. Its just the beginning of the story.

The song "SET IN STONE" was handpicked by award winning French Director DAVID MOREAU for the soundtrack of his 2013 film '20 ans d'├ęcart' .

A majority of the songs from The Great Divide form the soundtrack of a new film written and starring a Hollywood A-lister due for release in Spring 2015

Pat has recently teamed up with Drummer/Producer Chris McComish to put together an unforgettable live show featuring a complete string section and keys.
