Patrick Molloy writes songs of hope over despair, backed by riff-driven melodies bursting with energy. With vocals ranging from gentleness to aggression, his is a voice that demands attention to unique lyrical themes. Molloy’s first album, “Choices Decide”, earned him a nomination for Alternative Recording of the Year at the 2007 MUSICNL Awards. Shortly thereafter, he was featured as a Producer's Pick on the Nationally Syndicated Radio Program, "The East Coast Countdown". Reviews of his debut EP boosted his tenacious spirit and his sound has evolved accordingly. The 26 year old art fiend is also a professional ace. Patrick has a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree from Memorial University of Newfoundland, which he constantly utilizes to make progressive strides in his music career. An example of the intersection between his keen business sense and love of the arts is his showcase series, “RAW REFRAINS” (www.myspace.com/rawrefrains). Founded in October of 2007, Raw Refrains is a revolutionary series that brings together songwriters, visual artists, dancers, illusionists and more in an intimate and attentive atmosphere. The show is a multi-faceted display of the St. John’s scene and has promising market potential. The event continues to grow in popularity and has attracted performances from such musicians as Sandy Morris, Chris Kirby, Ian Foster, Sean Panting and Liz Solo, to name a few. At the 2008 MUSICNL’s, Molloy showcased during an ECMA meet and greet. The industry professionals in attendance were highly impressed with Patrick’s hooky music, clever song writing and graceful vocals. Patrick’s new material consists of psychedelic refrains aimed at greedy leaders, anthems of karmic consequences and revolutionary ballads that desperately plea for PEACE, NOW, TODAY. Patrick has formed a band, “Patrick Molloy and the MANIFEST”, who have given his music a new energy and dynamic rock edge. With a full year of rehearsing and a couple of strategic gigs under their belt they are ready to take the next step in the evolution process to record a new album together. They will be heading into the studio on May 1st, 2009 with hopes of a packaged product in the Fall.
