Patrick Stump (born Patrick Martin Stumph, April 27, 1984) and raised in Glenview, Illinois, is an Irish American singer-songwriter, composer, record producer, and music critic. Most notably, he is a composer, lead singer, rhythm guitarist, and occasional pianist of Fall Out Boy, an American band from Chicago, Illinois. He has also begun producing the works of other bands, such as Gym Class Heroes, Tyga, and Cobra Starship, among others.



Before Fall Out Boy, Patrick Stump was the drummer of a few suburban Chicago bands. Despite originally auditioning as the drummer for Fall Out Boy, and having no previous experience singing in a band, he became the somewhat reluctant lead singer after his vocal range was discovered. Several lineup changes were to follow, and he then began playing rhythm guitar for the band. At this point, current drummer Andrew Hurley was also brought in. Following a 2002 Split EP with Project Rocket, the band's first full-length album, Fall Out Boy's Evening Out with Your Girlfriend, was released in 2003 on Uprising Records, though they shortly left the label to sign to Fueled By Ramen. They released Take This To Your Grave in 2003, their second full-length album. It's been credited with earning the band's first significant fanbase, as well as some minor commercial success.
In 2003, Stump and his bandmates went on to sign with Island Records, and released the acoustic-based EP My Heart Will Always Be the B-Side to My Tongue CD and DVD in 2004. This was followed with their third studio album, From Under The Cork Tree, which went double-platinum in 2005. Their fourth studio album, Infinity On High, was released to generally positive reviews in 2007, and their most recent album, Folie à Deux, was released on December 15 and 16, 2008 in Europe, and United States/worldwide, respectively.
In a Rolling Stone interview with Patrick, Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds said of him, "Patrick is one of the baddest dudes I've seen in a long time... He has a great voice -- very soulful."
In Fall Out Boy, Stump writes the majority of the music for the band, while bassist Pete Wentz writes the majority of the lyrics. Guitarist Joe Trohman said of Patrick, "I guess Patrick is some kind of musical genius - he's a total mad scientist."


Music Projects

As a producer, along with a handful of Fall Out Boy tracks, Stump has worked with The Hush Sound on Like Vines, Gym Class Heroes on As Cruel As School Children, and Cobra Starship on ¡Viva La Cobra!. He also produced a track on Lupe Fiasco's The Cool. In 2008, he executive- and co-produced The Cab's Whisper War and Gym Class Heroes' The Quilt, as well as several tracks on Tyga's No Introduction. He is currently said to be working with Cobra Starship and The Cab again on their upcoming records.
In addition to producing albums, Stump has also remixed various tracks for soundtracks or special releases. Among various others, he's notably provided a "Queen Of Apology" remix for The Sounds on the Snakes on a Plane soundtrack, a remix of the Fall Out Boy single "Dance, Dance" available on the Sugar, We're Goin' Down EP, a "Sugar We're Goin Down" remix on Fall Out Boy's From Under the Cork Tree special edition release, and "Pace Yourself" for The Higher on their album, On Fire. He has also recently remixed Good Charlotte's "Little Things" for their remix compilation, Greatest Remixes.
