Biography

Patrick Rock is a talented singer/songwriter hailing from Greensboro, NC. He released his solo record debut, When All Else Fails… through Nascent Republic Records on March 17, 2009. This is an album two years in the making, and boasts tracks such as “Save Me” and “California” that are both musically engaging and lyrically solid. The album will be available in digital and CD format.

“The past is all behind me, I need the future now…” sings Patrick in his song, “Muse.” Nothing could be closer to the truth at the moment. Already having a reputation as a great live performer, he is planning on sticking to his formula of high energy live shows and plans to introduce an intimate acoustic portion as well. It quickly becomes apparent to members of any audience how well-suited and relaxed Patrick is onstage. “The last couple of albums I put out really struck home with my audience and I’m hoping this one will be just as relatable.” During performances, each lyric is delivered with the same intensity as the moment it was written, and it’s easy to get lost in the expressiveness of the songs.

The title When All Else Fails… started out as a motivational saying, but took on new meaning in the studio where Patrick would exhaust every instrument, tempo, and idea for the songs he was recording. He created beautifully layered music that took shape into the album he‘d been envisioning. “This album for me has tons of colors and textures,” explains Patrick. “I’ve never been the guy that writes 12 songs that sound identical. I look at each of my songs in a totally different light. I think it’s the same way if I hear Tom Petty or U2 on the radio… there is lot of variety within these artists, but you always know who you’re listening to.” He goes on to describe, “Whether it’s ‘Muse,’ ‘World of Fools’ or ’Reason for Everything,’ I feel like it‘s unmistakably me. These are stories of life and love in different shells.”

Lyrics

Save Me

Written By: Patrick Rock

I can hardly remember the day that we met, but don't get upset at least not yet
you've been running circles in my mind
and I'll always remember that day back in may, with your white dress on you promised you'd stay
two feet closer than any girl in the room

I'm gonna hold you, I'm gonna hold you to that, I'm gonna hold you

Save Me, Save Me, Save Me for a raining day
Save Me, I just want you to Save Me, you always can Save Me for a rainy day

Well you taught me to love like you learned how to swim, you held your breath and you jumped right in
and I know you're not another girl
well it's sugar and coffee with her cream and she rocks her feet to fall asleep
singing all these songs I wrote right back to me

I'm gonna hold you, I'm gonna hold you to that, I'm gonna hold you

Save Me, Save Me, Save Me for a raining day
Save Me, I just want you to Save Me, you always can Save Me for a rainy day

You're leaving me at sunrise, I'm waking up at noon
you're the sun all day I imagine, I'm the fullest midnight moon
we're skin to skin and we're heart to heart
two worlds collide, we’re miles apart
it's a love few of us will be

Save Me, Save Me, Save Me for a raining day
Save Me, I just want you to Save Me, you always can Save Me for a rainy day
