Patrice Moerman is pleased to announce the release of her debut CD "Following A Dream." Patrice wrote the music and lyrics for all songs and the CD was produced by Jim Robeson.
Jim has a long history of producing and engineering for many fine musicians and is a three time Grammy nominee.The sound is guitar driven rock, inspired by the music from the late 60's , early 70's. It has been described as "rock, bluesy, a little country, even new wave. The lyrics of these songs stand out--they are interesting, unconventional, and put a fresh spin on some familiar themes.
Patrice plays electric guitar, piano and does all the vocals, along with Jim Robeson on bass, Paul Bell on lead guitar, Andy Haley on drums, Mike Griffith on drums, Bill Starks on Hammond C-3 organ, and Luis Garay on congas and percussion. She was a finalist in the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest with the song "You Affect Me". Three songs won honorable mentions from the 2001 Billboard Songwriting Contest and five won for the 2002 Billboard Contest.
Patrice was also a finalist in the songwriting contest. She is a self-taught musician and has worked as a commercial artist for many years. The CD cover
of "Following A Dream" is one of her original paintings.

Sharon Flynn

Good old-fashioned rock and roll expressing the ironies of today .
Lyrics will resonate with all ages, particularly those who put their dreams aside for a while. "Mother's Day" is a poignant reminder of why our dreams get delayed. It's rocky,nostalgic and finger-snappin good. Go along for the ride.

patrice has a lyrical approach that sets her apart -- she was born to rock!!!!
I had this cd in heavy rotation in my car -- whenever it came on I couldn't quite place the artist as it sounded like a major label release. Her passion for pure rock shows and her story ideas are truly unique. Paul Bell's guitar playing (he also plays with Nils Lofgren of the E street band) shines on her songs. A great first effort -- keep an eye on her....

Tastefully Aggressive and Delightfully Versatile Guitar Playing!
FOLLOWING A DREAM is a true melting pot of musical expression. Songwriting highlight... "Going Through The Motions" (track 3) for its trippy acid country rock feel, very original. Guitar playing highlight... the killer slide solo in "Forget To Forget You" (track 5). Lyrical highlight... consistent throughout the entire CD -- don't forget to read your insert. And you are sure to enjoy "You Affect Me II" (track 14)... a jazzy instrumental reminiscent of Wes Montgomery. Talented songwriting blended with tastefully aggressive and delightfully versatile guitar playing is the reason FOLLOWING A DREAM is a real treat to listen to.

stellar songwriting and production makes this a MUST BUY
what a variety of musical styles! From country alternative to rock and roll, Patrice has made a CD to suit everyone!
A great back up band, a fantastic lead guitarist, and fine production by Jim Robeson makes this a must buy indie release! Cant wait for the next one!


Great sound and lyrics! My life, funny, serious and very real, to music.
You have put my life to music. I love your sound. I come away feeling less alone and definitely charged. It's music that makes you think too, cool! I have listened to your CD so often while driving that my kids know all the words. I love your sense of humor too. Thank you.

Following A Dream is rock and roll for human beings of all ages.
Following A Dream is rock and roll for human beings of all ages. Patrice Moerman writes intelligent, sometimes sensitive, sometimes cynical, sometimes humorous lyrics about real life and sets them to some rockin’ tunes. Don’t Walk Away is that rare ballad which laments the middle of a relationship rather than the beginning or the end. It features a haunting, bluesy melody with a great hook. All of us who survived the 60s (and the 70s, and the 80s, and the 90s) can find ourselves in Patrice’s music.

Great tunes
Its great to hear this kind of music these days-- a nice break from that obsene rap. Patrice's "Following a dream" is a wonderful collection of blues and classic rock. Definitely worth listening to!
