Crazy Dreams, in hard copy and signed by the author, is the compelling and highly anticipated autobiography from Paul Brady, a musician whose remarkable career has spanned six decades and who is indisputably one of Ireland’s greatest living songwriters.
‘I would read/listen to anything that Paul Brady has to say. A voice of our times.’
‘A troubadour, an honest man, fearless and true, an inspiration to any- one who would like to be a storyteller … And all that’s without trying to describe the way he sings and plays, that’s beyond me …’
‘Paul Brady is strong stuff … more real and more honest than most people would even try for … a genuine voice speaking from the heart but with a brain still attached … I love his work and always have.’
‘People get too famous too fast these days and it destroys them. Some guys got it down – Leonard Cohen, Paul Brady, Lou Reed – secret heroes.’
‘This is the story of a youngster in love with the music he heard on the radio in Ireland, teaching himself piano and guitar before finding his own voice and becoming a leading international singer-songwriter.’
‘Like so many of his songs and his presentation of them, Crazy Dreams is a work of art at once driving and delicate, gritty and graceful.’
‘Few can write, sing and play with more gorgeous melody, virtuosity and soulful lyrics than Paul Brady. He’s written some of the most powerful and beloved songs I sing and will always be one of my favorite artists.’
‘There is no limit to Paul’s scope in music, going from the re-statement of Paddy Tunney’s great songs (and other traditional music) to his thoughtful compositions about the darkness and joy of living in the modern world.’
Paul’s book can be purchased in the PeeBee Store.
