Born in Jackson, Mississippi, Patrick was exposed to the southern roots soul, jazz, and funk music. This was a heavy influence into his development as a musician, songwriter and performer. He combines the influences of Funk, Soul, R&B, and a flavor of Jazz to create his own unique sound as a performer and a songwriter. He can hear these influences on the songs It’s All Right Now and Sweet Tea.

This is musicianship at its best. The raw sound of funk, soul, jazz, and blues makes you want to dance and enjoy music again. He has that 70’s soul sound when artist actually played instruments. Check out the tracks from his latest solo project, ‘It’s All Right Now’ which was released, in July 2011.
