The Curious Case Of Paddy Milner

I’m pleased to announce that my new album, ‘THE CURIOUS CASE OF PADDY MILNER’ is released today and is available in all good UK stores, Amazon, iTunes & other download stores. The response has been amazing and here are just a few quotes about it so far:

“Dazzling” THE INDEPENDENT
“Sheer brilliance” PROPERGANDA
“10/10…Something out of the ordinary to celebrate…every song is a standout track. I seldom give full marks for an album…but it would be very hard to better it” BLUES IN BRITAIN
“I highly recommend it…somehow things start to feel much better!” JACK BRUCE

You can hear samples from the album on this site or on SoundCloud, iTunes, Amazon etc. I hope you enjoy as much as we enjoyed making it! Let me know what you think of it and please spread the word via Facebook, Twitter etc. or good old fashioned word of mouth…there are some exciting things coming up, with some good things happening in the press and radio so keep a look out!

It was an absolute pleasure to create this album and I have been blessed to have worked with all the amazing people involved. Special thanks to Alex Reeves who worked hard with me to develop the piano/percussion basis for the record and for his time, dedication and passion put into the music.  Massive thanks to Kimiko & Jean Michel Bernard for the use of the wonderful Popion Studios in Paris, and for welcoming us into their home and family. Remi Barbot did a fantastic job of the mixing. Thanks to Ruthie Phoenix for some inspired artwork and to everyone else for their brilliant individual contributions.
