Paddy first took to the stage aged two with his father, well-known singer Pat O'Hare. He started off playing the cornet but eventually decided to trade that in for his first guitar (given to him by his Uncle Kevin Neill of 60s hit band The Karl Denver Trio).
He spent most of the noughties playing with both original and tribute bands at such venues as: The Cavern Club - Liverpool, and Manchester Academy & The Ritz earning rave reviews for his vocals and guitar work
Paddy has played the cabaret circuit as a solo guitar vocalist since 2001 all around the UK and also in Europe.
With a vast and varied repertoire from the Rock, Pop, Soul & Blues genres, his set includes classics from the 1950s through to the present day.
Whether playing a pub, Social Club or private party, Paddy will give a professional, quality performance and is regularly re-booked by venues.
"A piercing and perfectly pitched lead vocal turns some great songs into something special."
"Where trad-folk was absent, however, a traffic-stopping voice was not, and his had enough vocal horse-power to get Clarkson itching for a test-drive. 'Love Conquers All' was dedicated to the hungover amongst us (which included at least 97% of patrons), culminating in a vital blast of Nurofen in some heartening "aaah, ooh, aah oh oooh"s. "
"Particular note to Paddy there, the lead guitar was terrific!"
