“A great voice, a true talent, and a righteous guy, Pat is one of the very best I’ve worked with in a long time.” — Rich Brotherton - guitarist and producer, Ace Recording & Robert Earl Keen
An Irish singer and songwriter, Pat Byrne’s voice strikes an emotional chord; ranging from seductive whisper one moment, to full-bodied rock 'n' roll growl the next. Byrne has come a long way since his first deal with Universal Ireland. Now a seasoned performer, Pat’s dexterous songwriting prowess has emerged. Quietly, he’s taking on America, on his own terms.
Moving to Austin, Texas, opened a whole new world for Pat. “It’s terrifying, but I’ve never felt so alive musically. Every night I go see a new gig; and I’m blown away. And I get chances to play with those people and it’s inspiring.”
Pat is currently releasing his new material, starting with the single “Rituals”, and the LP by the same name coming out November 2nd. The artistic growth is clear, and the authenticity is palpable. No one genre dictates the mix, a broad range of Irish Americana—and the tracks get better with each listening. [Organizer's description]
