Pa Curran is a singer-songwriter from Bantry, West-Cork, Ireland. He was awarded the "Acoustic Yard Irish Singer-Songwriter of the Year" 2016.
His debut album, “Poor Man’s Clothes” was written and recorded at Ocean Studios in West Cork with producer, Wayne Sheehy.
Pa has just completed a successful Fund-It campaign to contribute to putting the finishing touches on the album. The lead single, “Poor Man’s Clothes”, tells the story of valuing people over possessions, a theme that resonates throughout the album. Pa’s first single, “Unintentional Hero”, was a bittersweet success for him last year when it went straight to Number 1 in the iTunes chart, putting Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” at Number 2. The single was a dedication to Pa’s close friend and fellow musician, Taidhg Burke Neff, who died tragically in 2013 and donated his organs to save the lives of seven people.
Having supported Declan O’Rourke, Ian O’Doherty, The Original Rudeboys, Niall Connolly and The Calvinists, Pa has toured the US on various occasions; one of the highlights being a gig at Rockwood Music Hall and the iconic “Scratcher Sessions”.
