"CD Review"

"One of those heavy cats you never heard of because he chose to hang around Austin and raise his kids rather than hit the road finally takes his turn to step out. After years of working with Jerry Jeff Walker, Nanci Griffith, Gurf Morlix, Buddy & Julie Miller, Lou Ann Barton and lots of others you like from the Americana realm, this is a tasty work out... a must for Americana fans, who are certain to flip out at discovering an important missing link." - Midwest Record

Bio

Patterson Barrett moved to Austin shortly after appearing on Jerry Jeff Walkers first release on MCA records, playing pedal steel, dobro, and guitar (including the song L.A. Freeway).

Not long after arriving in Austin, he formed the band Partners In Crime, which included Buddy and Julie Miller, releasing one album on their own label, Criminal Records.

In the years since, Patterson produced some of Hal Ketchums earliest demos, served in Al Koopers back-up band, and performed before 10,000 festival-goers as Chuck Berrys pianist. He accompanied Nancy Griffith on Austin City Limits, legendary Austin singer Lou Ann Barton in music clubs around the country, and Buddy Miller on several records including his recent collaboration with Jim Lauderdale, "Buddy & Jim."

Patterson's discography includes two solo endeavorsI Must Be Dreaming in 2007 and the 2012 release, "When I Was Your Age..." He cites Neil Young and country-rock pioneers Poco and the Flying Burrito Brothers as his early influences, as well as soul stalwarts such as Sam and Dave, The Temptations, and Marvin Gaye. His music has been compared to John Hiatt, The Band (whose song Sleeping he lovingly covers), and Ryan Adams.
