Born in London from a Celtic and Italian background, Patrick grew up surrounded by opera lovers, guitarists and Scottish bagpipe players, and has always enjoyed an eclectic range of music. While at school he was lead guitarist and songwriter for his band Strangers’ Gallery, while also studying classical piano, guitar and composition at the Royal College of Music. As a result of winning several prizes for piano he’s performed in many prestigious venues in London and Cambridge, where he now also conducts his newly founded “Alba Orchestra”.
At 14 he was lucky enough to perform a version of Duelling Banjos with celebrated violinist David Garrett on the Jools Holland show at the Royal Albert Hall and at Ronnie Scott’s. Two years later he was one of the winners in the first “Rhythm of London” Busking Competition with school friend and now fellow Cambridge undergraduate Kieran Brunt, and they played at the St George’s Day Celebrations in Trafalgar Square.
Right now there’s nothing he loves more than making music with The Coach House Company.
