Patrick Sweany


"A Sweany set can veer from soulful, slow burn, John Lee Hooker-style blues to swampy, delta-country pickin' to white-hot rockabilly." - Cleveland Music Awards (winner best songwriter 2 years in a row)

Patrick Sweany's first breakthrough came at the ripe age of 21. A finger-picking guitar prodigy, and voracious student of early blues and soul records, he was on the forefront of the Deep Blues renaissance in the U.S., gigging around NE Ohio with his buddy Dan Auerbach and opening for near every Blues legend that passed through town.

In 2007, Patrick looked up Auerbach (who had just built a custom analog studio at his Akron home from the spoils of the Black Keys' success) to engineer and produce his record "Every Hour Is A Dollar Gone."

He spent 2008 and 2009 on the road, fine-tuning his original sound while supporting The Black Keys, Sonny Landreth, The Gourds, Paul Thorn, The Wood Brothers, and Leon Russell (among others).

Finally, after hundreds of club dates and festivals in the U.S. and England, plus a move to Nashville, Patrick released his new full-length record, "That Old Southern Drag" in early 2011.

This time Patrick wanted to capture a wider range of roots influences and styles. He enlisted Joe MacMahan (Will Kimbrough, Webb Wilder, Allison Moorer) to engineer and co-produce, and recorded, mixed and mastered in analog to give "That Old Southern Drag" a timeless feel.

Look for Patrick Sweany to be on the road again extensively in 2011 & 2012 in support of a deluxe 180-gram vinyl reissue of his Dan Auerbach produced record
"Every Hour Is A Dollar Gone."
