Spotlight on Patchy

Paul Wright was born in Kingston and raised in that area as well as St Ann. Paul and other children used to sit on the ground and take it in turns to pull each other along by holding the foot of their trousers, which lead to the seat of their trousers getting worn. While Paul's friends would get new trousers Paul would patch his up and this is why he was given the name Patchy Patchy. Somewhere later down the line this was shortened to Patchy.

At the age of 15 and seeing the name King Jammys on a record label while at an Inner City dance Patchy found himself at the studio the next morning. He eventually became complacent and it was Devonte that motivated him to go back into the music. The result was him becoming one of the newest recruits of the Shocking Vibes camp.

Patchy used to enjoy listening to Charlie Chaplin. Charlie Chaplin used to be the leading DJ and his music used to get plenty of airplay on buses. Patchy used to try to DJ until the singer, Colin Roach advised him to try out his singing ability. He took this advice and got some voice training.

Many people wondered who the singer was featured on the hit tune 'The Business' alongside General B on Shocking Vibes' Joker riddim. Yeah you guessed, it was Patchy and to date this has been his most successful single released.

Patchy writes all his own lyrics and he has written for the artists both within and outside of the Shocking Vibes camp. He said that his writing ability is just, "an inborn thing that's my oldest profession". He wrote his first song at the tender age of 5. He joked about it and said, "that time me couldn't spell and I was like spell a word for me, spell a word for me until them get fed up".

Many young producers have dealt with Patchy's music and he has had work produced by established producers including King Jammys and more recently Shocking Vibes. He is concentrating on perfecting his art by continuing his voice training and although he mainly sings he sometimes singjays too.

When asking Patchy what he thinks of the current state of Reggae music his reply was, "some people just need to be more unified and try motivate a man when them see him a go instead a try pull him down".

When Patchy hears good music he listens to it whether it is Gospel, Classic, Instrumental, Reggae, Hip Hop or Rock & Roll. You name it if he thinks it sounds good he will listen to it.

Patchy's most recent public appearances at major shows include performances at Teen Splash 2000 and Champions in Action 2000. His ambition is to be the biggest and best Reggae act ever and as long as his talent matches his ambition there will be no stopping him from heading in that general direction. As he put it, "I want to go as far as possible I don't put no limits on my destination. I just want reach as far as it can go".
