Patrick Plunkett is a soulful folk/rock/alt country singer/songwriter producing music steeped in influences from his home country.
Not long after his birth in Paris, Patrick's family moved to Ireland where he grew up in a rich tradition of songwriters that began to mould his view on music. Patrick learned his craft listening to influences from home like Glen Hansard and Josh Ritter as well as sounds from overseas like David Bowie and The Band.
Unable to resist the allure of a culture rich city and travel Patrick relocated to London in 2006. Since then he has gigged extensively around London, released his debut EP "New Beginnings" in 2007, and won accolades like reaching the regional semi finals of the Surface Unsigned Competition 2009. January 2011 saw the release of Patrick's second EP 'Attracting Attention' with help of his amazing band: Ronan McCullough on guitar (also hailing from the emerald isle) Danny Seddon on bass and Philippe Castermanne on drums. For the rest of 2011 Patrick can be found gigging tirelessly up and down the UK and Ireland.
