Pat Kane has been singing, recording and performing for over 30 years.
He works overwhelmingly with his brother Gregory Kane, his partner in Hue And Cry since they were founded in the mid-1980s.
They have recorded 18 original studio albums, and written over 200 songs. Hue And Cry reached the heights of the British pop charts between 1987 and 1992, scoring top ten and top twenty hits with the singles "Labour of Love", "Looking for Linda" and "Violently".
Their albums Seduced and Abandoned, Remote and Stars Crash Down sold over 2 million copies in this period. They were recorded in New York and France, using some of the era's greatest session musicians (Dennis Chambers, The Brecker Brothers, Tito Puente, Andy Newmark, Ron Carter), and are regarded as contemporary classics of the era.
Since the 1990s, Hue And Cry have explored many routes in contemporary music - moving into hard jazz with Linn Records (JazzNotJazz and Next Move), returning to the soul-pop fray in 2008 with Open Soul.
After that, while running their own label Blairhill Media (with partner Dougie Souness), Hue And Cry have released new material and toured steadily. Their latest original album, the ballads-and-anthems collection Pocketful of Stones, was released in September 2017.
Pat has also occasionally performed in other musical contexts. He was a vocal lead in the Celtic opera When They Lay Bare in 2003. He also opened for Ray Charles, singing with Richard Niles' Bandzilla orchestra, in 2005, at the Louvre and the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall.
