Patched Apart (self-titled)-- release date - 5/4/07



Patched-up heart. This homophone for the band's name is the meaning behind and the reason for their music. The band realizes that the world consists of those who are broken and beaten, and they strive to use music as a way of reaching out a hand of comfort and hope.

Inspired by artists such as Relient K and Weezer, lead singer/guitarist Peter Heyn brings a whole new taste of alternative/pop punk melodies with faith-based lyrics. Having written his songs for years now, Peter masterfully mixes the haunted with the beautiful. The track “Down With Masochism” is a perfect example. Introducing itself with a haunted piano-line, the song drives into a huge wall of sound, filled out with guitars and drums. Even as the verse acts out the pain left by haunted memories, the listener is ultimately grabbed by the chorus, “It's getting hard for me to sleep/So why do I still sleep with these pictures of you by my bed?” sung with the most haunted, yet catchiest of vocal melodies.

With bass player Aaron Schmidt, drummer Greg Dietsche, and pianist Amy Boerneke, they’ve teamed up to form the tight group known as Patched Apart. The comradery between Aaron and Greg is quickly apparent as they provide the powerful rhythm that drives Peter's infectious melodies. The topping of Amy's strong female vocals and piano arrangements gives the listener a unique experience, full of haunted dreams, but also smiles of reconciliation and hope. In addition to their musicianship, it is this positive message that makes Patched Apart a driving force.

Having recorded their self-titled debut album at DNA Studios with sound engineer/producer Brian Lanier, Patched Apart is ready to take the Wisconsin music scene by storm.
