Crazy Dreams by Paul Brady


Crazy Dreams is the compelling and highly anticipated autobiography from Paul Brady, a musician whose remarkable career has spanned six decades and who is indisputably one of Ireland’s greatest living songwriters.

This evocative memoir chronicles Paul’s many years at the forefront of the Irish folk scene, from The Johnstons and Planxty through to his seminal work with Andy Irvine and onwards to his own vaunted solo career. Along the way are the many encounters and collaborations with such musical luminaries as Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Carole King, Tina Turner, Mark Knopfler and Bonnie Raitt to name but a glittering few.

From such celebrated tracks as ‘The Island’, ‘Nobody Knows’ and ‘The World is What You Make It’ to his interpretations of traditional folk songs like ‘Arthur McBride’ and ‘The Lakes of Pontchartrain’, Paul has carved out his own unique place in Irish musical history. In Crazy Dreams he tells how it was done and regales the reader with remarkable stories of life on the road and the journey from small-town Tyrone to the world’s stage.


‘A troubadour, an honest man, fearless and true, an inspiration to anyone who would like to be a storyteller… And all that’s without trying to describe the way he sings and plays, that’s beyond me…’ Eric Clapton

‘Paul Brady is strong stuff ….more real and more honest than most people would even try for ….a genuine voice speaking from the heart but with a brain still attached …I love his work and always have.’ David Crosby

‘Few can write, sing and play with more gorgeous melody, virtuosity and soulful lyrics than Paul Brady. He’s written some of the most powerful and beloved songs I sing and will always be one of my favorite artists.’ Bonnie Raitt


Paul Brady, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist is one of Ireland’s most enduringly popular artists. Born in Belfast and raised in Strabane, close to the border with the Irish Republic, he was interested in a wide variety of music from an early age. Brady joined the Irish ballad group, The Johnstons, with whom he recorded seven albums. He is renowned as one of Ireland’s best interpreters of traditional songs. Paul Brady continues to push out the boundaries not only of his own talent but of Irish contemporary music in the new millennium.
