Good News! Patrick and the band are back in the studio recording another full-length record for release in 2017.
Even better news! They've chosen to do this one in the legendary Sam Phillips Recording studios in Memphis.
Engineer/producer Matt Ross-Spang is at the helm (fresh off of producing Margo Price's latest Midwest Farmer's Daughter and engineering Jason Isbell's Grammy-winning Something More Than Free).
Expect another platter of funky rock and roll and blues to hit the streets next Spring.
In the meantime, Patrick will be continuing his voracious tour schedule, hitting the South and East Coast through the end of the year (including some more dates with The Wood Brothers) and looking to the Mountain States and West Coast in early 2017.
Patrick stopped by the OurVinyl Studios in Nashville recently to record an intimate solo performance of two classics ("Hotel Women" and "Them Shoes") and one new tune ("Tiger Pride"). Check them out here:
Spring is here and that means change is at hand: please give a big hand for Zach Ryan who has joined the band on guitar and backing vocals. Zach comes to us by way of Oregon and Nevada, and plays around Nashville on his own. You can check out his Facebook music page here.

Paste Magazine premiered "First Of The Week," the first song on Patrick's new record Daytime Turned To Nighttime, calling it, "...a warm acoustic jam about forging your own path on the road and living with those consequences" that has "...a soulful vibe evocative of early-’70s Southern rock." - CHECK IT OUT HERE -
Few would argue that Summer is the best time to go see/hear live music. Patrick and the band are headed out for a lot of shows between now and September. We'd appreciate it if you caught a show and told your friends! Ticket links to most of them are to the right here. More dates for the Fall coming soon!
Patrick has just finished work on his next full-length release - Daytime Turned To Nighttime - due out this Fall. He'll be touring the entire country between now and the end of the year to introduce fans to some of the new songs.
We've been lucky enough to add a bunch of cities that Patrick has either never been to, or has never headlined, including Macon, GA, where he'll join Futurebirds, The Apache Relay, T. Hardy Morris, Lera Lynn, Turbo Fruits, and many others for this year's Bragg Jam Festival. Keep any eye on Patrick's schedule for an appearance near you!
Patrick is featured in the May/June issue of American Songwriter Magazine (The Blues Issue, naturally), where interviewer Andrew Leahey gives a thoughtful retrospective of Patrick's career, his current life in Nashville, and some info on his forthcoming record due out later this year.

This past summer, Patrick and the band hit 23 states and provinces. They returned to many familiar clubs and festivals, and played many new ones. A huge thank you to everyone who came out to hear the band, help spread the word and bought some music to take home.
We've got just a handful of shows to round out the year in PA, NJ, AR, TX, GA and OH. Stay tuned for details. Lots of news coming your way soon.
Europe was amazing! A big thank you to all of the clubs and fans, and especially Rootsy and LDM Bookings for putting together this massive tour.
The U.S. tour schedule has filled up nicely for the summer, including some GREAT festivals (Montreal Jazz Fest, Mile of Music in Wisconsin, Telluride Blues & Brews and, of course, Kent Fest). We also have club shows in PA, DE, NY, MA, CT, VT, OH, KY, NC, GA, MI, MO, NE, IL, CO and our first ever in Canada! Stay tuned for the West Coast in September...
