"Studio Cafe Orlando, FL"

The cozy ambiance of the Studio Café is the perfect setting for an acoustic showcase, with big comfy chairs to curl up in while listening to the music and hearing some of the stories behind the songs.

Patrick Burke started off the evening with “Wanna Be,” a catchy, melodic song from his solo debut CD Lettuce Pray Project. His powerful, passionate voice was full of warmth as he played through several more songs from the record, including “Feel Me Crumble,” “Secondary Ordinary” and “Everything.” He sang the as yet unrecorded “Wonderful,” a song about a card he got from someone saying how wonderful he was, and then how the next week he wasn’t so wonderful anymore.

The central Florida-based singer/songwriter also included “Dysfunctional Country,” a song from his previous band, Searching For Gladys, as well as covers of Matchbox Twenty’s “Hang” and Asia’s “Heat Of The Moment.”

"Patrick Burke "The Lettuce Pray Project" (427 Records)"

Patrick Burke "The Lettuce Pray Project" (427 Records)
By: Paul Autry

"The Lettuce Pray Project" is the debut solo release from former Searching For Gladys vocalist Patrick Burke. It's a twelve song release that's a must have for those of you who are into melodic, radio friendly rock 'n' roll. Right off the bat, there's five songs on here that have the potential to be a hit single. Those tracks would be "Wanna Be," "And Finally," "Everything," "Stand, Shine & Sing" and "I'll Fly Away," all of which are catchy and they stick with you the first time you hear them. "Secondary Ordinary" is a little laid back and the way the song flows, you almost expect it to kick into high gear, which it doesn't do. Skip down to "Feel Me Crumble" to hear a more rockin' tune. The disc ends with two versions of a song called "The Captain." The first version is a ballad and it's a great song. The second version, which has a full band behind it, has more of a kick. When you listen to the album as a whole, it's a very solid, well balanced release...a collection of good songs and not a weak one in the bunch. "The Lettuce Pray Project" will give you hours upon hours of listening pleasure. I've had this one in my CD player so often, it's almost like it became one with my stereo. Seriously, it's that good. I don't think you'll be disappointed with this one.
