Having been born half a century too late in 1990, Cado is a modern rock and roll artist with an obsession for music of the past! After stealing a Beatles’ album from a record shop aged 10, he was inspired to make music for people to dance to.
Cado, who grew up in County Kildare, Ireland, was mesmerised at an early age by the sound of The Beatles and Chuck Berry and from then commenced a lifelong obsession with music! His father would perform Johnny B. Goode to him, and when he heard the hard hitting opening riff featured in ‘Back to the Future’ at age 11, he did not hesitate to pick up a guitar and has rarely put it down since!
The multi instrumentalist has toured the UK and Ireland with The Shades and in early 2016 he began recording a collection of songs inspired by the music he adores. In August 2016 he released the “Take Me Back” EP. The singer-songwriter takes a completely DIY approach, self recording and mixing everything in his personal studio. Every instrument is performed by Cado
allowing him make music that he truly loves. Cado spent late 2016 and early 2017 recording his latest EP in a DIY studio in his hometown of Naas. The first single and title track “Satisfy My Soul” was released on Friday August 18 2017. Mixed by Martin Quinn (The Strypes, Heroes In Hiding) and mastered by Pete Maher, (U2, Jack White) “Satisfy My Soul” is available to stream and buy from all online music stores and streaming services. The accompanying music video, produced by Second Frame and starring actor Shane Casey, has just been released.
