Cork, County Cork
A versatile singer song writer with a background in classical guitar, Colm Fitzpatrick is a two time prize winner at the esteemed Cork Folk Festival Song Contest. He has emerged as one of the most diverse musicians currently performing with songs ranging from dark folk, to lullabies on the ukulele.
2016 has proven to be an exciting year with a live album release and an immensely successful crowd funding campaign with local business, Crowdsound.co. His creative campaign offered fans the chance to get their selfie on the EP cover for just €1, as well as many other innovative rewards.
His bluesy baritone vocals compliment his expressive and tasty guitar/ukulele playing. His dynamic music incorporates a wide range of emotions and styles so audiences are as likely to laugh with him as to be held in attentive silence. His debut single Simple Loving was described as 'a beautifully crafted acoustic guitar-driven song' and was awarded 4.5 out of 5 by Pure M Magazine. His performances and engaging stage presence have won him praising reviews from John Spillane, Paul Linehan of The Frank and Walters, and Dick Dixon, director of The Warwickshire Folk Festival.
In the summer of 2015 he pioneered a 'write-a-song-a-week' challenge called The Dry Wall which involved weekly live streamed performances and ran for 12 weeks, reaching 10,000 people online by its completion. After four contrasting single releases and a live album in quick succession, his highly anticipated EP, 'If' will be released later this year.
