With a career spanning five decades, Paul Brady, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist is one of contemporary music's most enduringly popular artists.

Brady first came to attention as a teenager at college in the mid 60s, in a series of classic Dublin rock/soul bands. The world-wide folk boom of the time produced seminal groups like The Clancy Brothers, The Dubliners, Clannad and The Johnstons, with Paul soon joining the latter. He recorded seven albums with the Johnstons and moved to London then the USA, returning to Dublin in 1974 to join premier Irish folk band Planxty.

Throughout the 80s and 90s Paul toured widely with his band in USA, UK, Ireland and continental Europe. Many highlights included European tours with Eric Clapton and Dire Straits. The albums 'True For You' (1983), 'Back To The Centre' (1985), 'Primitive Dance' (1987), 'Trick Or Treat' (1990) and 'Spirits Colliding' (1995) further cemented his reputation as a songwriter and dynamic performer.

Paul Brady releases his first new studio album in seven years, 'Unfinished Business' on 8 September via Proper Records. Brady's 15th solo album and follow-up to 2010's acclaimed 'Hooba Dooba', Unfinished Business features nine new compositions and two traditional folk songs and mirrors the eclecticism of Paul's long and varied musical journey.

Unfinished Business was recorded at Paul's studio in Dublin, with Paul engineering the record and playing most of the instruments himself. Of the nine new songs, Paul wrote three with Paul Muldoon, five with Sharon Vaughn and one with Ralph Murphy. The two traditional songs are: 'Lord Thomas And Fair Ellender', which Paul has sung ever since he heard Mike Seeger's version back in the 60s, and 'The Cocks Are Crowing', which he learned from the singing of the late Eddie Butcher from Magilligan in County Derry.
