Patty is winner of eleven WAMMIES including Album of the Year, Artist of the Year and Roots Rock Vocalist! With the voice and musicianship on Patty’s latest release Strong Medicine, it couldn’t be more clear that the medicine is working.
After a standing ovation following her performance at the packed Strathmore Music Center during the recent Woodstock tribute, Patty’s attitude with soulful expression and her powerhouse pipes proved a match for the likes of Janis Joplin and other prolific and important artists. Other comparisons have been made, that Patty claims as influences, including Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.
Patty performs more than 250 dates a year, released a WAMMIE award winning album “Here and Now” and has garnered multiple songwriting awards over the years. Her powerhouse vocals, strong work ethic and honed songwriting skills have led her to the release of her best work to date Strong Medicine where between acoustic guitar-accompanied story songs and powerful songs backed by a full band, Patty puts all of her crafts to work. This CD has garnered even more attention and awards (WAMMIES) including Roots Rock Album and Roots Rock Vocalist.
