Biography

Pat Powell chose to make Sydney his home in 1981 where he is well known as a jazz, funk and reggae singer, he has worked and recorded internationally with some of the biggest names in show business Al Green, Michael Hutchence and Kylie to name a few.
In 2004 he teamed up with Paul Finnerty and they recorded a CD in the mainstream jazz style. They were quick to realize that the best way to promote their music was to write original tunes and in 2006 they brought out a CD which was done in the adult
contemporary style.
This year they have produced a CD which so far has been described as being in the 60s pop style, although to either it is just good music. They incorporate a few tunes that have social conscience as they think its their duty to make people more aware of the circumstances in the world today.

Lyrics

How Can I Begin

Written By: Finnerty/Powell

HOW CAN I BEGIN Paul Finnerty/ Pat Powell
How can I begin
To tell you
What you mean to me
You mean so much
So much to me
Oh, how I love you so, my dear my dear
From now on my darling
I will never let, never let you go, let you go
I promise that I will never stray
Because I know that you’ll always be near
How can I begin
To tell you
What you mean to me
You mean so much to me, so much to me
Oh how I love you so my dear my dear
Some how dear I know that
You, have to love me too
So we can
Just be two
As if just as one

Hear Me Lord

Written By: Finnerty

HEAR ME LORD Paul Finnerty

Known as god, Jehovah & Allah
Since time has begun
You have been watching
Over us for years
Though we have our doubts
Of what it’s all about
You have guided us in so many ways
Dear lord please don’t let me down
Keep me safe and sound
Show me the right pathway to follow
Worldly they do pray
In their own kind of way
But it is you their really praying for
Even though wars they do fight
Thinking they are right
I know you would want to disagree
Cause by end of war
They’ll learn that you are right
And see the light becoming so free

Everybody Knows

Written By: Finnerty/Powell

Everybody Knows

Everybody knows that I talk to myself
They say I’m insane little do they know
My little friend Joe, who resides in my brain
Doesn’t cause any pain little do they know
He came to me, from out of the TV
It happened to be on the late night show
My little friend Joe have a lot to recall
We talk each day little do they know

By Myself

Written By: Finnerty/Powell

By Myself

Because you treated me badly
That’s why I have to be free
I just have to be happy on my own
Now that I’ve gotten over
All that you have put me through
I will make a new start all by myself

When you went I thought I would be lonely
Now I have a chance to make a new start by myself
Now that I know that it’s over
Find someone new and move on
I just have to be happy for myself
