Album Notes
Bethlehem and Sad Patrick combine smart lyrics dealing with universal themes, soaring vocals, sparse guitar and driving percussion to deliver powerful songs that dig deep into being in and out of love, keeping your head up in the city, struggling in all sorts of ways, and searching for happiness and peace on the margins. Sad Patrick’s hybrid of folk, blues and jazz guitar provides a subtle, well-blended counterpoint to Bethlehem’s “vocussion” – her term for her powerful, immersive singing, remarkable improvisations and nuanced melodies riding atop tarima and body percussion. Their second studio album, “Love and Other Struggles”, sonically and thematically extends the ground they broke on 2016’s “Did You Ever Do?”, which garnered significant airplay on WXPN, and WSTW, and landed them on XPN’s Folk Show with Ian Zolitor. But they are best experienced live, where you can see their interplay with each other and witness how fully Bethlehem inhabits their songs and captivates a crowd. Since forming in 2012, the duo have gone from playing street corners and backyards all around Philadelphia to spotlights at Club Passim in Cambridge, MA, Ladybug Music Festival in Wilmington, DE, the State Street Blues Stroll in Media, PA and the Philadelphia Folk Festival.
