Frances Keenan, "Living has a fine mixture of emotions running through it. It can cheer you up, and then make you feel like the loneliest person in the world in just two or three songs. Not many albums have the power to move us so completely."

"Whatever Gets You True," the first single from Amen (So Be It), is currently receiving strong airplay internationally and is now available for free download, in its entirety, on Casey's website.

24-year-old Paddy Casey has been playing gigs on the streets of his hometown Dublin since he picked up the guitar at 12. Casey's widely acclaimed debut album, recorded in just eight days and co-produced by Paddy, reached the Top 20 and achieved platinum sales in Ireland. Amen (So Be It) earned Paddy a Best Album award at the Irish World Awards and nominations for Best Irish Songwriter and Best Male Singer at the prestigious Hot Press Awards. Paddy was voted Most Promising Act while Amen (So Be It) was voted Best Debut Album in the Hot Press year-end reader's poll; he was also nominated in seven other categories. Amen (So Be It) combines elements of not only folk, rhythm & blues, rock, jazz and gospel, but funk, electronics and even hip-hop (one of his goals is to open for Public Enemy).

Following the release of Amen (So Be It) in Europe last year, Paddy toured extensively, supporting REM, Ani DiFranco, Ian Brown, Tracy Chapman and The Pretenders, in addition to his own headline gigs and a performance at Glastonbury. Casey has toured the U.S. twice this year, once supporting The Pretenders and once with labelmate Chantal Kreviazuk."
