Paddy Clegg is ready for the crowds and lights where he will be singing his own tracks to everyone! Be sure to be following this up and coming musician!

How old are you? 

If you add 5 and 12 together that will amount to my age!

What is your genre of music?

In my opinion I think my musical genre is a mixture of things. However, if I had to name them, I’d probably say Acoustic/Pop/Skiffle/Alternative all mixed into one!

How long have you been doing music? 

I picked up my first guitar at around about the age of 8 learning my basic chords up until about the age of 12. I then parted with my guitar for a couple of years and started to play drums, jamming with friends and forming a band. Due to school work and other commitments, the band I played drums for fizzled out and parted. Once I turned 16, I finally picked up the courage to sing in front of people and I began to record multiple covers of some of my favourite songs and uploaded them on to Soundcloud. This went on to having a great response from people and I was receiving feedback I’d never imagine I’d ever get as I wasn’t the most confident person with my voice. So, with people liking the covers, I began to write/compose my own songs and went on to releasing my first ever single “Back to the Start”.

What made you go in to music?

From a young age I’ve always been highly interested in playing and listening to music. My dad always had guitars knocking about in the house when I was younger as he used to play himself, so I felt like I needed to have a go myself.

Are you a Signed Artist?

Yes, I am currently under Twin City Records / Fly on the Wall Records.

Who are your influences?

– I have a numerous amount of influences and I’d probably be here all day naming them! However, some of my top influences are:

The La’s, Hudson Taylor, Newton Faulkner, Jake Bugg and Mumford & Sons.

When will you be releasing new music?

I will be releasing my new single “Let’s Get By” early December 2014.

How do you get inspiration to write songs?

With me, I tend to concentrate on the musical aspects of things before I pick a subject to base lyrics on. However, I like to write things about every day life that others can relate to and feel a connection.

Where is your dream place to perform (Country)?

I’d absolutely love to play Glastonbury Festival (England). However, going over to the states (USA) would be a dream come true for me! My goal is to play as many places/countries as possible and show my music to the world!

Who would you like to perform with, if you got the chance?

I’d love to perform with Newton Faulkner that would be unbelievable! Dave Grohl is another musician I’d love to jam with!

Where do you see yourself in 2-5 years?

Hopefully, doing what I’m doing now! Making music, having a laugh and gigging in front of fans, as that’s what I love to do!

If you weren’t doing music what would you be doing? 

Probably listening to music and wondering why I wasn’t making/producing music!

Who is your favourite Artist or Band at The Moment?

I have many favourite artists/bands I really love at the moment! Here is a short list:

The 1975, John Newman, Jake Bugg, Hudson Taylor, Catfish & The Bottlemen & many many many more!!!
