The typical adjectives used to describe singer songwriters don’t really apply to Patrick Park. The contemplativeness and over analysis that are so often behind the heady brand of music Park proffers doesn’t appear in his creative process. Indeed, his decisiveness is rare, if not unprecedented, in so introspective an artist. He doesn’t agonize over his music; he just makes it. He doesn’t purr out the lyrics; he sings them in full voice, putting everything he’s got into every line. Park’s verbal precision recalls Leonard Cohen, his forcefulness rivals that of Neil Young and the Dylan of “Positively 4th Street.” His songs teem with dramatic tension, vivid character sketches and fitful visions of inner turmoil.
“Gorgeous country-tinged, Nick Drake-sparse folky songs about missed love & opportunities.” – LA New Times
