Patrick is a multi-instrumental guitarist, singer-songwriter, producer - and currently a senior at Chadron State College in Western Nebraska. Born into a musical family, he was surrounded by music and musical instruments his whole life. At 13, he and his mother were living in Asheville North Carolina when he received his first guitar - a yellow Fender Stratocaster - as a gift. Seeing there was some talent there, he began taking lessons with noteworthy local guitarist Rick Praytor - and soon after began playing under Rick's direction with the teenage blues band that came to be known as Skinny Legs And All. Patrick honed his talent for live blues improvisation and love of the guitar over the next few years, playing at local Asheville venues and music festivals.
In 2014, he enrolled in the music program at Western Nebraska Community College, where he continued to pursue his love of music and participate in many performance opportunities, including 3 years with Theatre West Summer Reperatory Theatre. After graduating in 2017 with an Associate's Degree, he transferred to Chadron State College. He is currently seeking internship opportunities for the summer of 2019 and will graduate with BA in Music with a Business concentration in the Fall of 2019.
Patrick's first full length self-produced effort Oxygen, released in 2014 after his move to Western Nebraska - is an introspective collection of songs, written over the previous 2 years. The album draws from folk, rock and blues roots and is available on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.
