The son of a North Louisiana Hillbilly and a South Louisiana Cajun, Patrick has been playing the guitar and singing in public since age 12. Starting in his hometown of Shreveport, Louisiana (home of the Louisiana Hayride and Leadbelly) and then later in Baton Rouge (Blues and R & B), he has played music from the 60's rock explosion to Folk, Country, Blues and New Orleans style R & B. Patrick has written or co-written songs that are a blend of Blues, Rock, R&B, Folk and Country.

In 1988, Patrick moved from Baton Rouge to Santa Cruz, California (where Old Hippies go to die), and after recovering from the culture shock started performing on the West Coast. He has performed at the Opening Night for the 2005 and 2006 Santa Cruz Film Festival at the Del Mar Theatre. Out West Patrick could be found performing solo or onstage with a number of talented musicians including John Craigie (A Seasoned San Francisco based Touring Troubadour), Mark Gloster (in a duo known as Rubber Shark Gumbo), and Kevin Jenkins (Slide Guitarist Extraordinaire). Another sometime collaborator was the late Karen Stern (a talented satirical singer/songwriter). He has been on a number of tours of the Pacific Northwest, California, Texas and Louisiana.

After over 23 great years in California, Patrick found himself missing his home state and moved to New Orleans in 2011 and plays all around the South.

This album came about after Patrick and Percussionist Ron Thamert played a live show in Shreveport opening for Sugarcane Jane and the Bucket Fillers featuring Anthony Crawford and Savana Lee. The show was recorded and after listening to the songs Anthony contacted Patrick with a proposal that he add extra tracks to the live performances with him playing the additional instruments and producing. Anthony has toured with such luminaries as Neil Young and Steve Winwood.
Patrick was honored, happily agreed and the results are what you hear. There is one track (“I Don’t Think Much”) from a different live performance in Baton Rouge with Bob Worth playing some tasty acoustic slide guitar. The rest are from the Shreveport show. Savana Lee provides harmony vocals with Anthony on “Alone At Last”.

Hope you enjoy it!
