After dropping out of school and living as a street busker, Patrick Duff became lead singer of the alternative rock band Strangelove, who were signed to Food Parlophone/EMI.
The band released three albums,
a string of E.Ps and a series of top forty hit singles between 1991-1998 and performed widely throughout Europe playing the main stage at Glastonbury and Reading Festivals.
Radiohead’s guitarist Ed O’Brien said of the band, ‘we toured with Strangelove and changed quite a bit after that. They were inspirational.’
After the break-up of Strangelove, Patrick began his career as a solo artist. As a result of his work with WOMAD Festival he began a collaboration with 81-year-old African master musician Madosini; living and working with her in the black township of Langa, Cape Town. Patrick and Madosini toured across Europe, Africa, The Far East, Australia and New Zealand.
Patrick has released four solo albums, the first of which was ‘Luxury Problems’ on EMI’s Harvest label, produced by Adrian Utley of Portishead and Alex Lee of Goldfrapp in 2005.
‘The Mad Straight Road’ followed in 2010 produced by Massive Attack collaborator Stew Jackson, with two releases in 2013; ‘Visions Of The Underworld’ described by Rough Trade as ‘a heart-breaking folk record that highlights Patrick’s direct song-writing prowess’ and ‘Seven Sermons To The Dead’ commissioned by Bristol City Council and performed in Bristol Cathedral.
Patrick has recently completed his fifth solo album entitled ‘Leaving My Father’s House’.
Patrick continues to tour the world with a one-man show of songs and storytelling
and is writing his autobiography.
