‘Everything Changes With You (Version 2)’ is a standalone single from singer-songwriter Patrick Mc Eleney, hot on the heels of recent singles ‘Memory’ and ‘She’s Gone’. The song featured in E4 television show Made in Chelsea Monday 19th October and has had an incredible reaction online so far. The song draws on influences from Ben Howard and Damien Rice, while also going deeper into atmospheric and cinematic landscapes with string arrangements and soaring guitars.
Patrick Mc Eleney grew up in Donegal watching the Atlantic tides come and go. The passing of time, much like song writing, has forever been on his mind. Over the years, he has travelled, collecting words, sketching melodies and experiencing life. Growing, learning, hurting and healing.
You can hear it in his voice. The introverted honesty he quietly asserts feels colossal in its weight while impossibly intimate in his delivery. He uses piano, guitar, strings, cuatro and other instruments he’s acquired along the way. For the last few years he has pushed himself to arrange and record them while forcing himself to rise above the deafening self-doubt.
