Hello There! Looking to enjoy folky indie blues with a splash of sultry jazz? I am affordably at your service! An average set consists of mostly cover tunes from Ray Lamontagne to tried and true Jazz Standards ( I try to always add my own touch of personal flare) and I throw in some originals as well..some banjo here and there. I am also happy to include any specific songs you might request!
I didn’t get to personally hear her sing during my cocktail hour but friends and family said she was great and brought the vibe I was looking for. I did however hear her play at a restaurant a few months back and loved it.
We asked Patty to perform for a small group of friends at our pre-wedding campfire. Patty was so accommodating and such a professional! As the host, I wasn't quite sure what to expect as I've never hired a singer for a "campfire," but Patty got to work as soon as she arrived and just went with the flow. Patty has a beautiful singing voice, and my guests commented on how lovely she sang. She really made our get together special.
Patty was fantastic for our event this past week. She absolutely set the tone we needed to compliment the evening. She was kind and professional. Our guests raved about her and we cant wait to have her at another event. Thank you Patty!
Patty was an outstanding choice for our party--she has a tremendous range of songs. Our guests thoroughly enjoyed her music. She was prompt and professional and easy to work with. Highly recommend her!!
Patty was extremely talented and everyone enjoyed her music! We highly recommend her and would love to have her again!
Patty was wonderful. Very entertaining and enjoyable. It was easy to book her with great communication up through the party. Will definitely use her again.
Patty was perfect for our event! She is an amazing entertainer, her voice and her guitar skills were mesmerizing. She showed up early to set up and was very professional and sweet. Everyone enjoyed her music and I received numerous compliments about our musical guest. I am trying to plan another event just so I can hire her again. Thank you again Patty!
Patty was amazing!!!!! My husband and I have an annual chili cook-off every year, and this year we decided that live music would add to the fun. Patty sounds just like Nora Jones! We had about 50 friends, family & and neighbors attend our event and everyone commented how much they enjoyed the music! I have already booked her for next years event! She is wonderful!!!
Price Range: $75-$300
Gig Length: 30 - 180 minutes
What to Expect
One thing my jazz instructor from university taught me was to always read the room.
I am comfortable sailing along the back drop of the event, maintaining an intimate and personal mood or I can be more interactive and keep the atmosphere lively and enjoyable or I can straight-up flaunt what I've got and give the audience a show!

Influences & Inspiration
Some modern artists I really admire include:
Andrew Bird: Multi-instrumentalist,primarily violin. With hints of swing, folk, New Orleans jazz and indie rock his style is distinct: always surprising, always heart wrenching.
Melody Gardot: jazz/blues artist with timeless vibrato and exquisite control. Her music is therapeutic.
Fleet Foxes: intensely genuine indie folk with a touch of psychedelia. (reassuring harmonies) My favorite music in an intimidating nature setting.
Ani Difranco- singer songwriter/ poet. So very inspiring and groovy. Something of a feminist icon.
The Civil Wars: Male and female Americana duo. Their harmonies are the cleanest, sharpest and sexiest I've ever heard! They have an ability to express that I aspire to greatly.
Ray Lamontagne: blues and folk singer songwriter. A big gravelly voice he knows just what to do with! His music is warm, soulful and sensitive
Artists from before my time:
Bireli Lagrene- Child prodigy in the 80's, he has a guitar picking style all his own and still holds true to the familiar and entrancing qualities of Gypsy Jazz.
Sergio Mendez: has an incredible ability to demonstrate the essence of traditional music from sooo many world cultures. Practically a musicologist.
Led Zepplin: I didn't know what rock and roll was before this band. Very raw and very honest and each member possesses some very impressive skill!
Bob Dylan: not everyone is a fan, which I can understand about the slouchy voice and not the most dexterous guitar style, but he is an impeccable story teller and a lyrical virtuoso.
The list could go on...
All I ever need is a mic, a mic cable and an amp. I can usually provide them myself.
Recent review: Angel did such a great job that even her impromptu song selection was spot on!! Highly recommend…
Recent review: Eric Ray performed for my husband's 60th Birthday Party which was wonderful. His list of songs…
Recent review: popped into Tijuana Flats to have lunch last Saturday and they were playing for the cico de mayo…
