Proven a great match up with national Blues and Roots luminaries, Patty has supported many including Beth Hart, Delbert McClinton, Tab Benoit, Jimmie Vaughan and Dr John.
“Music has always been my inspiration, my challenge, and a respite and safe harbor to express my sorrow, pain, anger, love, humor, and everything that makes us human. I’ve always had a strong desire to explore, grow and improve. I love the work of being a musician — meeting new friends and fellow music lovers, a life surrounded by musicians and fellow creatives, being in a new place every night — it’s always new, always fresh.
“This collection of songs is an honest representation of who I am, where I come from, and where my heart is. The Blues remains the rock on which I have built every song I’ve ever written. I also love to incorporate songs by artists that inspire me and this time it was Steve Earle and Bob Dylan.”
Her powerhouse vocals, strong work ethic and sharply honed songwriting skills have led her to the release of Let In The Sun, her most captivating work to date. Be assured, the future in store for Patty with this release is already bright.
