Bio

For decades, the men and women of Canada’s country music industry have mirrored the history and culture of this great nation. From artists like Hank Snow in the 1950’s through to George Canyon in the 2000s, each have had a profound effect with live performances, radio play and television appearances building scores of fans one at a time. Although the Canadian country music industry has changed and will continue to do so, one constant that remains is the welcoming of new artists and their storytelling songwriting skills. Enter Patrick Masse – with a twinkle in his eye, country boy charm and the soulful voice of a crooner, Patrick is “A Traditional Yet Refreshing Brand of Country.”

“After playing for years with artists such as Tracy Lawrence, Dierks Bentley and Aaron Tippin, I can say without a doubt that Patrick Masse is the real deal..... his voice is what true country is about, with emotion, conviction and unique style. His writing is that of a truly great songwriter; Patrick is the kind of star that country music needs more of.”

Nashville

Growing up in Vancouver, surrounded by six siblings, Patrick’s parents recognized and nourished the spirit that music inspired in him. His exposure to old country with the likes of Merle Haggard, Don Williams and The Oakridge Boys occurred early. The Everly Brothers PBS Special was a family favourite as was dancing on Friday and Saturday nights while the record player was on. Although Anne Murray, and Wynonna Judd entered the mix, dad often snuck in tunes from the Mamas and Papas as well as The Eagles, “Peaceful, Easy Feeling”.

From grade school through to high school Patrick’s music immersion contributed enormously to his confidence. Knowing that his dyslexia set him separate and apart from those around him, Patrick remained unshakeable in the fact that he loved to entertain and would be doing so in the years ahead. Appearing around Vancouver at different songwriter's gatherings and live music venues in the mid 90’s, Patrick, through an association with songwriter Sandy Dunkley, was introduced to the Nashville Songwriters Association, where he began playing showcases at The BC Songwriters Showcases. His association with Dunkley also introduced Patrick to Mel Shaw, the Founding President of CARAS (Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences) who later went on to co-produce Patrick’s first CD.

As time marched on, Patrick’s talent continued to unfold, aligning him with some of the best in the music business. Friendships emerged and remain with multi award winner, Carolyn Dawn Johnson and Beverly Delich (Michael Buble), and Sandy Dunkley to name but a few. The support of each contributed to Patrick’s current and new CD, MEND THE MAN – a collection of smooth ballads and inspirational tracks all woven together with an underlying theme, that “nothing worth having comes easy.”

While Patrick’s memory bank contains a nomination for the Ray McAuley Memorial "Horizon" Award at the BCCMA Awards and radio airplay north and south of the border, his present continues to garner significant media coverage surrounding the Calgary Stampede and feature performances at The Big Rock Outdoor Festival. At ease in songwriting, performing or raising awareness for dyslexia, Patrick’s future is filled with a bevy of his own personal philosophies, “Happiness is measured by one’s self. Don’t hurry, but don’t wait.”

If MEND THE MAN is any indication as to the future of Patrick Masse, Nashville and beyond are in for a huge treat.
