ESPN features Patrick Dwyer's "Plastic Stars" for the World of X Mini-Series "Big Wave Hellmen" - ESPN


Frolicking, rollicking “(See You) In My Memory” from indie singer/songwriter Patrick Dwyer conjures the Old West with a driving force field of acoustic instrumentation, rapid-fire guitars, insistent percussion, rubbery bass, and the inspired, commandeering vocals of the rural Montana-based troubadour (think John Denver meets U2). With flourishes of tambourine, a whistle here and there and crafty harmonies from Dwyer, he offers a universal theme about the one that got away: 'What are we now? What were we then?/Such good strangers, such good friends…Thought you should know I still see your smile from time to time/So I'll see you in my memory.' As catchy as Gorilla Glue, this giddy-up anthem is truly a sing-along triumph. - Chuck Taylor (Billboard Magazine)


Patrick Dwyer has that rare kind of talent that puts him in the category of legendary musicians, those musicians with such blazing, inherent talent that it simply cannot be learned or created. A dynamic musician that was born with astounding innate abilities. Patrick most definitely has what it takes to move up the musical ranks to bluer and sweeter horizons, if only more listeners would wise up, listen and find out more about him.

“Scarecrow”, Patrick Dwyer’s single, where he plays and sings every note to sweet perfection. This young talent is one of the very best and refreshing artists I have heard in the past few years. His singing style is unique and his song writing is well thought out, while his music genre cannot be defined by one single category. I would loosely categorize it into, perfect driving in the car heading some place fun music, but that would be just the tip of the iceberg. If you mixed and mashed some Coldplay with Jason Mraz and a dash of Jackson Browne, you’d begin to get a delicious taste of Patrick Dwyer’s craft.

The songs “Plastic Stars” and “No Hiding Places,” only serve to further confirm Patrick’s singing and songwriting talents. His tunes are never edgy or overwhelming. They’re an unpretentious set of simply crafted, feel good, grown up pop songs that you find yourself singing or humming long after they’ve have stopped spinning.

It is clear from the tracks that I’ve heard so far, that Patrick treads his own distinctive artistic path, melding a variegated musical tapestry with passionate, personal lyricism. However, the magic magnetism of Patrick’s music, is that his songs are totally “in” sounding with the modern crowd. Yet it can be heard and appreciated in whatever generation you are in. His acoustic-guitar dominated songs, shatter all barriers and are simply uplifting.

I highly recommend buying his music and listening to the songs more than once before making judgements. Let them play all the way through. The hidden nuances you find each time you listen to Patrick’s singing or playing, are quite remarkable!

A star in the making… - Jamsphere

Bio

Patrick has a 21st century edge, with 1950's charm.

Hailing from a rural Montana town and being from different cultural backgrounds, Patrick embodies both sides of the proverbial coin.  He is equal parts Montana and Los Angeles, city and country, old fashioned and new, and that all reflects in his music.

Honey-like vocals with an occasional bee-stinger, his music has a dirt road sound with hints of paved highway, all while maintaining a pop sensibility. His music invites happy souls and broken hearts alike, where one can easily get lost in not only the catchy melodies, but also the heartfelt lyrics.
