Catherine McGrath is the biggest name coming out of Northern Ireland right now when it comes to country music. It poses the question: are there more talented young musicians like her that are yet to be discovered? One of those who may begin to build up a following is a singer-songwriter hailing from Belfast. Pádraig is about to release his debut single Memories, a beautifully haunting ballad about loss and grief. It is a captivating track that begins with just him and his acoustic guitar before slowly building into a gently rousing chorus, complete with drums and female backing vocals, which resonates deeply with his emotional lyrics. His voice is very reminiscent of Luke Bryan, but with a softer edge that adds poignancy to this particular track. It is a very well-produced and affecting first single that sets him up nicely for further releases.
