Pat has been a pro musician most of his life, played in various bands, and as a solo artist, has opened for major acts, but is now concentrating on writing. Pat has written over 400 songs in different genres, including country, pop, rock, blues, children's, & holiday music. He writes, sings, produces, and plays all the instruments on 99% of all his recordings. He plays guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, drums, and a little piano and fiddle. One of his songs was slated for a CD by a new artist, but it has yet to be released. Another song is featured in the film "Van Vorst Park" starring Frank Vincent. His children's CD "In The Land Of Make Believe" is a CD Baby favorite & they have offered a money-back guarantee on it! Pat has placed in both the 2010 and 2011 Song Of The Year contests. He was a semi-finalist in the 2011 Acoustic Roundtable contest and made the Top 10 in the 2012 Broadjam 6-Pack contest. A number of Pat's songs have been accepted into numerous licensing houses & several online radio stations. Often compared to James Taylor, Pat is a consummate singer songwriter in his own right.
