Influences & Inspiration
Patrick didn't begin to appreciate Sinatra's interpretations and performances until he was 28. Growing up, he credits Elvis Presley, Neil Diamond, and Billy Joel as influences who pushed him towards singing. As an adult, his influences have been most of the 50's and 60's greats including Ella Fitzgerald, Bobby Darin, Sammy Davis Jr., Tony Bennett, Keely Smith, Count Basie, Quincy Jones and Frank Sinatra. For fun Patrick enjoys listening to 80's rock/pop and classic rock.
