Who is Paddyman

Paddyman is a full time entertainer (from Ireland) based in Dubai. He performs a mix of high energy music (vocals, guitar,trumpet & harmonica) and comedy (jokes, stories and funny songs).Paddyman performs for festivals, events, weddings and in pubs and bars. He has performed alongside other well known Irish and international acts such as The Wolfe Tones, The Committments, Sharon Shanon, Damien Dempsey, Aslan, Sharon Corr & Stereophonics.In August 2018 Paddyman co-headlined an Irish Festival in Italy (EireLaFesta) with Beoga and Altan.

Besides Irish music, Paddyman also performs international music (anything from Country roads / Volare / Fly me to the moon or Ed Sheeran’s hits)As regards musical comedy, Paddyman has been described as “Tommy Tiernan with a guitar!”

His hilarious original songs like Paddy Style and Hotel Burj Khalifa are crowd favourites.But he also finds other funny songs around the world and makes them his own by adding verses, such as the Wife Song, My Little Honda 50, the Viagara Song & Did you ever get a ride on a tractor!

Paddyman, real name Declan O'Sullivan, was born and raised in Co Kildare, Ireland.

I started playing music in the pubs with my father aged 15. It was there I learned the importance of building a repertoire of songs.

“For me it's all about connecting with the audience, I play songs people want to hear. And then surprise them with a few unique stories and songs that make them go WOW!”

For more than 25 years I have worked at building that repertoire. "I'm constantly writing and collecting songs that connect with audiences.” Some are serious, such as putting music to Luke Kelly's poem, For What Died the Sons of Roisin. And others are just for the laugh, such as my version of Gangnam Style (Irish Paddy Style).

In 2011, I decided to dedicate all my time to my musical passion. This resulted in new recordings, and hundreds of live gigs in pubs and festivals across the Middle East, Europe, North America & Asia. 

2019 will see the release of two new albums:

Paddyman: Live in Dubai

One for the Road.

Both albums are a mix of original songs and his favourite covers.
