"Paddy Reagan, Hey! Hi! Hello!"

"As the booking dude for Winooski’s ever up-and-coming hipster haunt The Monkey House, Paddy Reagan spends a lot of time trying to satisfy the fickle ears of local music fans with other people’s music. But with his debut solo EP, Hey! Hi! Hello! Reagan proves an intriguing musical talent in his own right.

"The CD begins with the lilting “Fortunate to Sing.” Reagan’s pleasantly plain vocals bob breezily over nimble acoustic finger picking as the songwriter evokes down-home, backroads imagery set to the universal themes of livin’ and dyin’. To his credit — particularly as a young songwriter — Reagan’s stylistic influences are often difficult to directly identify....

"The disc closes with “To Know You,” a heartsick lament that resolves into tender balladry. Delicately understated, Reagan’s guitar work is nothing short of beautiful. Imperfections in his vocal delivery only serve to tug the heartstrings and lend the tune a peculiar earnestness. It’s a near-perfect love song.

"That Hey! Hi! Hello! is Paddy Reagan’s debut is impressive. That the EP is composed of the first songs he’s ever written is remarkable. Though not without its flaws, the disc is a tantalizing appetizer from an unquestionably unique local talent."

I once read that John Coltrane's love of folk traditions stemmed from the desire to connect more deeply with the purpose of why it is essential for us as human beings to make music. While Coltrane's studies led him to eastern folk traditions, mine have grown from the folk traditions that have surrounded me from an early age.

John Prine and Jesse Winchester were played so often during my formative years that I feel as though some of their recordings have become a part of my subconscious. Though Bob Dylan is a recent discovery of mine, his life and work have been a great inspiration to me.

I have only been writing songs since March of 2007, but have released one EP this year and am planning a recording session with my band, Cannon Fodder, as well as planning a second solo recording for the summer, hopefully due out this fall.
