NEW STUDIO RELEASE COMING 2013 FROM PATTY LARKIN!
Acoustic Guitar hails her "soundscape experiments." Rolling Stone praises her "evocative sonic shading." She has been described as "riveting" (Chicago Tribune), "hypnotic" (Entertainment Weekly) and a "drop-dead brilliant" performer (Performing Songwriter).
Patty Larkin is part of the urban-folk/pop music phenomenon that spun off of the singer/songwriter explosion of the seventies, reinterpreting traditional folk melodies, rock, pop, bossa nova, drawing on anything from Dylan (Bob) to Dylan (Thomas). A self described "guitar driven songwriter," Larkin has wound her way through soundscapes of evocative vocals, inventive guitar wizardry and imaginative lyrics. Her songs run from impressionistic poetry to witty wordplay.
In 2010 Patty Larkin released 25, a collection of 25 love songs in celebration of 25 years in the recording industry. Here Patty has reworked 25 of her favorite songs, each "unplugged" and each joined by a friend along the way. 25 is the collectible series of classic Patty Larkin love songs, created with dream team of some of acoustic music’s heroes including Shawn Colvin, Suzanne Vega, Bruce Cockburn, Mary Chapin Carpenter and others. In the spirit of camaraderie and musical adventure since 25's release, Patty has been joined on stage by many of the artists who appear on the album.
25 is her first project since Watch The Sky (Critics Choice-NY Times, Brilliant-Billboard) and the ground-breaking La Guitara, a compilation of international women guitarists. Patty is currently writing for her next project.
INTUITIVE SONGCRAFT - "Larkin’s shows are celebrations of song, guitar and voice coming together in perfect unison with a perfect blend of skill and humility. Patty Larkin would never tell you that she’s a great guitarist, but she’ll show you all night long."_CityBeat
