With a single and an upcoming unplugged UK tour, 2016 is starting quickly for UK songwriter Patrick McCallion. Matching lyrical wit to indie-rock cred, 2015 proved to be a consistent year of progress for the young songwriter and now it looks likely that this year will continue that trend.
For hunters of new music, bookmark his website to keep up to date – there will be more singles and further releases to come this year, and you can catch him on the road soon too.
Halifax’s very own Patrick McCallion is celebrating the rebranding of his musical persona by releasing the track ‘Light Entertainment’ to his fans for free.
As the singer/songwriter in the band ‘Small Words’ Patrick has already caught the attention of some key players in the music business, while previous release ‘Murky Waters’ has been causing quite a stir. The rebrand to ‘Patrick McCallion’s Small Words’ has been prompted by opportunities presenting themselves to Patrick McCallion as a writer and singer. Patrick feels that he has gone through too much under the name ‘Small Words’ to just drop the moniker.
New track ‘Light Entertainment’ is a rip roaring energetic commentary on the banality of lives lived out on social media, but ultimately it’s positive message, that you can achieve your goals with a bit of courage, makes this an uplifting ‘message song!’
There is an intelligent message and social conscience running through Patrick’s music, although this shouldn’t put off music lovers who just want to hear catchy guitar infused pop.
With impressive live performances alongside the likes of Primal Scream, Razorlight, The Fratellis and James Morrison and acclaimed releases ‘Murky Waters’, ‘Neat Little Package’ and ‘Nice’ Patrick McCallion is the real deal.
Punchy intelligent lyrics combined with impressive musicianship will surely see Patrick McCallion achieve anything he puts his mind to.
