The best kept secret in music

"A Master Pop Craftsmen"

[a] master pop craftsmen . . . patrick's guitar playing is stunningly liquid; sounds blend and roll out of his fingers as if he's playing what's always been there. he sings with feeling and range with a voice that's clear and emotionally raw. - The Corvallis Gazette Times

Feeling a bit camera shy


“I want to make albums that people listen to late at night, really loud, when they’re feeling low. I want to make records that mean to someone, what the records that got me through my hardest years, meant to me.” Earl Patrick is stretched out on his couch as he says this. His hands are behind his head and he looks tired but happy. “I didn’t sleep much last night,” he explains with a smile, “I was out in the village listening to some friends play until way too late.”

Living in New York, with nearly a decade of performing as a singer/songwriter behind him, Earl Patrick is truly coming into his own. He is returning to the studio in early 2004 to record his second album, and first true solo record, tentatively titled “Stupid or Narcissistic”, and his live performances have become, much like his songwriting, emotionally honest, intimate, full of dark self-deprecating humour, and most of all – compelling.

Patrick released his debut album “To Fall Again” in March, 2003 with his backing band, Dear Francis. The album has been called “an original statement in today’s assault of violent noise” (CDBaby) and Patrick has been described as a “master pop craftsmen” (the corvallis gazette times), as “finding a place for his finely crafted songs . . . your ears and heart.” (the oregonian)

Earl Patrick spent the three years before the release of that record living in Portland, Oregon and honing his writing and performing skills in clubs, touring regionally as a solo act and also with Dear Francis. During that time, he also had a trio with a violinist and a cellist from the Oregon Symphony. One of their recordings was the soundtrack for the short film "Chronology of Water", which debuted at the Northwest Festival of Film and Video (2002).
