A singer/songwriter from Gresham, Oregon, Patrick's folk/country music is a combination of stories from life experiences, observations, and dreams. Rekindling his passion after 35 years, Patrick enjoys the creative process of making music and performing in a variety of venues.
Following music icons such as Jerry Jeff Walker, John Prine, Guy Clark, and many others has allowed Patrick to carve out his own similar niche in the music crowd. It was through a network of like-minded musicians on YouTube that formed the foundation for an exciting outlet to his lifetime passion. Through the encouragement of the YouTube network, friends and family, Patrick began playing live for the first time at local open mic venues and coffee shops in 2012. A year of many firsts was concluded with a live concert in December 2012 at the historic Alberta Rose Theater in Portland, Oregon.
Patrick's first release is an EP collection of experiences and stories written and performed directly from the heart. This EP album reflects life's journey through the eyes of a songwriter. Appropriately title, Starting Over, this is in fact Patrick's breakout to professional music and following one's dream.
