Paddy Casey releases his third album, Addicted to Company (Part One), on September 7th. It’s the singer-songwriter’s follow-up to his blockbuster Living, which has sold a colossal 175,000 copies in Ireland alone.

However, after two albums, Casey has yet to make any sizable commercial impact beyond his homeland.

The inability to replicate Irish success in other territories is something which has stymied many major label-signed local acts and had led to the termination of the relationship with their paymasters.

Earlier this year, for instance Bell X1 and Universal/Island went their separate ways, despite amassing a very healthy Irish sales tally for their last album Flock.

Casey will commence the Addicted to Company campaign here with a series of low-key dates in the comng weeks. However, it will be interesting to note how his game-plan unfolds in foreign parts.
