In pursuit of a music career, Patrick Dwyer made the move to Los Angeles and instantly found supporters of his work. Howie Klein, music mogul and former president of Warner Bros./Reprise Records, quickly took notice of Patrick’s talent and avidly encouraged others to do so. Patrick’s unique vocal quality has acquired him special opportunities in the music industry, including being called in for an exclusive audition by casting directors of NBC’s “The Voice.” He has taken stage in venues such as Johnny Depp’s Viper Room, and most recently, Sunset Strip’s legendary House of Blues. Patrick is also showing up on the radar of major label, Interscope Records. He played an intimate performance at their private Thom Thom Club, on a stage shared by artists such as Lana Del Rey, Lady Gaga, and Dr. Dre.
Patrick Dwyer has that rare kind of talent that puts him in the category of legendary musicians, those musicians with such blazing, inherent talent that it simply cannot be learned or created. A dynamic musician that was born with astounding innate abilities. Patrick most definitely has what it takes to move up the musical ranks to bluer and sweeter horizons, if only more listeners would wise up, listen and find out more about him.
“Scarecrow” is Patrick Dwyer’s latest single, where he plays and sings every note to sweet perfection. This young talent is one of the very best and refreshing artists I have heard in the past few years. His singing style is unique and his song writing is well thought out, while his music genre cannot be defined by one single category. I would loosely categorize it into, perfect driving in the car heading some place fun music, but that would be just the tip of the iceberg. If you mixed and mashed some Coldplay with Jason Mraz and a dash of Jackson Browne, you’d begin to get a delicious taste of Patrick Dwyer’s craft.
The songs “Plastic Stars” and “No Hiding Places,” only serve to further confirm Patrick’s singing and songwriting talents. His tunes are never edgy or overwhelming. They’re an unpretentious set of simply crafted, feel good, grown up pop songs that you find yourself singing or humming long after they’ve have stopped spinning.
It is clear from the tracks that I’ve heard so far, that Patrick treads his own distinctive artistic path, melding a variegated musical tapestry with passionate, personal lyricism. However, the magic magnetism of Patrick’s music, is that his songs are totally “in” sounding with the modern crowd. Yet it can be heard and appreciated in whatever generation you are in. His acoustic-guitar dominated songs, shatter all barriers and are simply uplifting.
I highly recommend buying his music and listening to the songs more than once before making judgements. Let them play all the way through. The hidden nuances you find each time you listen to Patrick’s singing or playing, are quite remarkable!
A star in the making…
