Album Notes
In the intimate surroundings of the Britons” Protection, enthralled punters could have been forgiven for thinking they had been invited into Patrick’s living room. That’s not to say this is a warm and cosy way to spend the evening. There is more than a hint of black humour in Briscoe’s songs, and, if tonight’s repartee is anything to go by, it’s also in the man himself.

Early on, it seemed it would be easy to pick out songs that stand out in the set. As the evening went, however, it became obvious that Briscoe has more than an album’s worth of great material. The EP, released later this month,was a taster that left the listener champing at the bit. Until such a time as an album is released, we can thank a live performance for showcasing future material and Briscoe’s gigs are worth an evening of anybody’s time.

I only hope that Patrick Briscoe is going to be a household name sooner rather than later. In an overcrowded market, where singer-songwriters have a hard time standig out from the crowd, Briscoe has no trouble at all. After the much requested encore the queue to buy the 4 track EP “Give” made it difficult to get out of the Britons Protection. I also hope that it won’t be long before Patrick Briscoe is making the short trip over the road to the Bridgewater Hall.

"THE times they are a-changin'......certainly as far as Peterborough's live music scene is concerned. And the welcome musical revolution for the city is being helped along with the efforts of singer-songwriter James Chadwick...and James secured the impressive talents of Patrick Briscoe, who has supported the likes of Jose Gonzalez, as the headline act for theacoustic session launch night on Wednesday.

And boy can Briscoe play. His delicately crafted guitar lines are matched by provoking lyrics filled with emotive imagery. His passionate performance, while perched on his guitar case, brought a hushed silence to the the venue as the full house stood by and admired the skill of this seasoned performer.

Rachel Devlin -The Evening Telegraph

Patrick Briscoe is a man of intriguing contradiction. When in full flow heʼs subtle and intricate, yet between songs the Manc comes out and spades are
labelled shovels. “Played that one in Oxford”, he muses after a pretty ode
to an urban upbringing, “It didnʼt mean shit.” Briscoe delights with a performance that touches and comforts, ‘Haveʼ ticking like the pendulum of an antique clock and bringing all the timeless reassurance that comes with it. If the ship canal had a delta, ʻPerfect Dreamʼ would surely be itʼs sound.

Ali - Sounds of The City

Patrick Briscoe is one of those performers whose music creeps up on you and grows and grows and grows. If Briscoe calls comparisons with the likes of Nick Drake, Jose Gonzalez and others, it is purely because his song writing is up there with such luminaries. Patrick is a consummate performer both on stage and on record. Seek him out now; one day you'll be able to say, "I was there".

Modern and innovative acoustic guitar, both refreshing and hypnotic. Patrick Briscoes song craft and delicate guitar lines are lent weight by thought provoking lyrics full of the ironies and heartbreaks of English life. Difficult to pigeon hole and draw comparisons. Simply a must see.
