I'm a singer/songwriter with a passion for performance. I love music because it lets me tell or hear a story that words can't do alone. Whether upbeat rock or moderate acoustic/piano ballads, I want my music to connect with people so that they can understand the way I see this world.

Biography

Born and raised in Toronto, my keen interest in music and lack of academic discipline lead me head first into many grade/high school rock bands where I cut my teeth on 12 bar blues progressions, U2, Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam, Radiohead and a host of other 90's cover tunes. Everything from Elton John and Supertramp to the Allman Brothers, Eagles, Stones and Zeppelin, I always had the same indescribable feeling when listening to my musical heros.

For me, music is about telling a story, in a way that is non-linear, passionate and meaningful. Whether it's heartbreak, teenage angst, longing for a place and time you haven't found, I want to capture those moments and express them in the hopes it resonates with people and they find a reason to believe in what I write.

Whether alone on a solo stage with an acoustic guitar or piano or in a three piece rock group I want to perform so people look at me and are convinced that I have something important and meaningful to say.

Lyrics

Montreal

Written By: Patrick Kelly

Want a place with you
Miles from the new unlike home
A mix of many worlds
In love with by the girls unlike home
No smoking see the No smoking sign This trains leaving we’ll be there on time Stand up sit down you won’t fall
We’ve the wherewithal
To Montreal
The high heat beats along the ice cold streets we’re by the hand I’ve opened to the thought of just me here without plans
No smoking see the No smoking sign
This trains leaving they’ll be plenty of time
Stand up sit down you won’t fall
We’ve the wherewithal
To Montreal
Oh I’ll never really feel lost with you
Oh I’ll never really feel lost with you

So Long Heart

Written By: Patrick Kelly

I left my reason cause I thought that I might be loosing it Trying to connect feel the intimate come in life
Days go by only feel better when I come to it
The useless moments that passion all left behind
Over my shoulder saw a world I never expected Fine for faith they run up the bill on me
I couldn’t escape couldn’t let it even blow over Blessing was curse but still I just want to believe
So Long Heart still love I never had you before
It’s hard to get love and push it all through door
Oh good heart with everything you only want more So long heart
Through my youth wasn’t ready for life’s cold pressure Watching time I want to be a millionaire
Lessons learned you fight to find you’re cleaver
The easy ‘s quick but the hard teaches better unfair
So Long Heart still love I never had you before
It’s hard to get love and push it all through door
Oh good heart with everything you only want more So long heart
