"Review of Irish Murphys gig May 2009"

“…on next were Darlington, I had not heard them before and was unsure what to expect but I will certainly be hearing them again. Their set started quietly but roared into life with ‘The Vow’, this song was delivered with such power and energy that it transformed the atmosphere in the room, all heads were turned to the stage as the song finished…. Lead singer Patrick Berechree’s soaring vocals delivered great intensity and bass player Jason Bezzant shared in the on stage energy. Pabs Walker, sensitive but at the same time solid, on the drums, rounds out a great trio…..” - off the street


"Review of Festivale"

“Patrick Berechree opened the gig and delivered beautiful melodies and well crafted songs..... Patrick had the ability to draw audience members into thinking each song was especially for them….” - attitude


"Testimonial from organiser of National English Teachers Conference August 2009"

“My fellow organiser and I were both flooded with comments and compliments about you from fellow committee members, national and international guests and delegates alike.

The solo acoustic music during the pre-dinner drinks set the tone perfectly for the rest of the evening……… The fact that at the end of the night, as you played your final song, there was a dance floor full of smiling faces belonging to people aged from 25 to 65 is proof positive that you achieved what I had thought was almost impossible.”

Bio

Patrick Berechree has been performing live for nearly two decades. An evergreen of the live music scene of Tasmania, Patrick has performed over 1500 shows, appearing in almost every live music venue and event Tasmania has to offer. As a solo performer Patrick has opened for international artists including Suzanne Vega, Loudon Wainwright and Richard Thompson. Patrick has also opened for Australian performers including Paul Kelly, Hunters and Collectors, Hoodoo Gurus, The Sharp, Augie March and The Beautiful Girls. Festival experience includes: Taste of Tasmania (6 times), cygnet folk festival (twice) and Launceston’s Festivale.
A regular at Tasmania’s leading live music venues The Republic Bar and Irish Murphys, Patrick focuses on producing an intense and warming performance which translates well from either large or small stage.
Inspired by artists such as Bruce Springsteen and PJ Harvey, Patrick’s songs are raw and vital and are best listened to in the live setting, with song forms often changing in the moment, to better capture a mood or deliver an emotion.
With 3 independently recorded studio albums to his credit, Patrick toured for the first time in 2010, playing gigs in Slovenia, Germany and the UK.

A winner of several Tasmanian awards and songwriting competitions, Patrick is most proud of his victory (as a solo performer) in the University of Tasmania band comp and was a proud recipient of an Arts Tasmania grant, which he used to record his debut album.
