Patty Larkin is a true phenomenon among singer/songwriters in the American folk music scene today. She redefines the boundaries of folk-urban pop music with her inventive guitar wizardry and uncompromising vocals and lyrics. The New York Times describes her as “A virtuoso guitar player and mood-shaper…She is also a superb slide guitarist whose mature work is comparable to the best of Bonnie Rait and Lucinda Williams.” “Riveting” says the 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.
