An intricate blend of intelligence, irony, and wicked self awareness brings this singer/songwriter to once again reveal herself most eloquently in her latest full length CD, "what would you believe?".
The songs range from introspective looks at relationships and self-forgiveness to obsession and finally to humorous commentary on female competitiveness. Patricia consistently offers an unflinching, steady stream of word play and composition that will capture your ear and your mind.
Patricia spent her childhood on an Alaskan island. Learning what she could from limited resources, she soon outgrew her hometown and set her sights on New York City. Several years of the Big Apple allowed her to grow as a musician and performer and to glean insights as a songwriter that one can only get by "being there". She lived and performed in the ever-vital downtown New York scene. Tasting and touching, living and growing.
With the knowledge and experience accumulated from that eclectic life, Patricia returned to Alaska. She has a studio surrounded by majestic mountains and pristine seas. Here she works on her music so she can share with you her innermost sensual an d thought-provoking self.
This highly anticipated new CD, "what would you believe?", is the second release by this award winning singer/songwriter. Her first release, "My Best Mask On", received rave reviews from national publications such as Performing Songwriter, and won two awards for two different songs.
The advance reviews on "what would you believe?" are glowing.
Listen for yourself.
