Biography

I've been making music for 25 years just for the love of music. Always a guitarist, but recently added vocals out of necessity of not having a band at this point. It's hard to get your songs out to folks without words!

Looking back my whole life has been about music. I started playing guitar at 15 years old and never looked back. In the last four years I've become much more serious about my music and have been basically living in a studio since. It's amazing to start with a blank slate, struggle through the ditch digging and then sitting back to listen to you what you have created... the anticipation of sharing it with others... there's nothing better.

I'm influenced by all music but being a guitarist it's all about Stevie Ray and of course his idol Jimmy Hendrix. The guitar for them was not an instrument but part of their body that was attached to the soul... an awesome thing to see and hear!

Thanks for stopping by...

Lyrics

The Poet

Written By: Pat Fleming

A fractured soul
In a drunken hole
Sang the blues

A brilliant man
with a dark command
sang the blues

He sang of a life
Riddled with strife
In the darkest light of the blues
In the darkest light of the blues

Men would sigh
With a tear in their eyes
When the poet sang his blues

With words too strong
He strummed his song
Of the blues

He sang of a life
Riddled with strife
In the darkest light of the blues
In the darkest light of the blues

The pain in his heart
Exploded apart
and bled out his song

A tortured man
with a dark command
of the darkest of the blues

He sang of a life
Riddled with strife
In the darkest light of the blues
In the darkest light of the blues

We drank his song
as he spoke of wrong
that festered out his blues

Though his life was brief
His songs, his grief
Trevor still sings his song

He sang of a life
Riddled with strife
In the darkest light of the blues
In the darkest light of the blues

Drifting

Written By: Pat Fleming

Walking down the road... mist is in the air
Flashes in the distance... electric in the air

Drifting in and out of reality
Searching for myself... can barely see you girl

Moving on ahead in the shadows of the night
Somethings got to give girl this just aint right

Drifting in and out of reality
Searching for myself... can barely see you girl

Strumming out some chords in the middle of the night
Prying out the words just to make it right

Drifting in and out of reality
Searching for myself... can barely see you girl

Maybe someday I will understand
The flashes in the night... they are part of the plan

Drifting in and out of reality
Searching for myself... can barely see you girl

Walking down the road... mist is in the air
Flashes in the distance... electric in the air

Drifting in and out of reality
Searching for myself... can barely see you girl
