Biography

Singer/songwriter Paddy Milner has recently emerged as one of the most distinctive new talents in the UK, which explains why Gerry Bron - legendary rock manager, producer and record label boss – has come out of retirement after fifty years in the music business to sign him to the iconic Bronze Records.

Milner’s original vocal sound, influenced by distinct genres including ska and Britpop, is underpinned by his virtuosic jazz piano playing and intricate arrangements. This innovative style and remarkable technical talent separates him from other jazz and soul contemporaries and has drawn favourable comment from many corners, not least Dave Brubeck, who commented “There’s someone who can really play the piano”. Milner is also highly regarded by some of the biggest names in Blues and recently supported both BB King and Joe Cocker.

His debut album, Walking on Eggshells, released in early 2006, received widespread critical acclaim which was matched with commercial success internationally, topping the FNAC Jazz & Blues chart and crossing over into the mainstream French charts. His new album – Based On A True Story– will be released in April 2007 and will be supported by a full UK tour.

Paddy Milner’s music defies straightforward definition. Citing influences as wide ranging as Madness, Rufus Wainwright, Stevie Wonder and Nick Drake, Milner successfully manages to straddle genres – and eras – whilst retaining his own unique voice and style.
