ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer/songwriter Patrick Park's musical career, while relatively short in existence, has already garnered accolades from the hyperactive British press and landed him an opening spot on shows with Beth Orton and Gomez, among others. Yet unlike most stateside acts that are quickly hyped across the pond never to be heard from again, Patrick Park is quietly turning heads here with his blend of earnest folk melancholy and delicate, soaring tenor that harkens back to 70's predecessors John Denver and Gram Parsons.

Raised in Colorado but currently L.A. based, Patrick Park could have been just another punk rocker turned folk balladeer waiting for a break. But a chance meeting with acclaimed producer Dave Trumfio (Wilco, My Morning Jacket) resulted in songs that would end up on his first mini album, Under Unminding Skies, which also features one song engineered by Anna Waronker (That Dog) and Steve McDonald (Redd Kross) and a cover of The Zombies' Colin Blunstone's solo cut "Caroline Goodbye." Currently receiving extensive airplay on KCRW and featured on AOL Spinner as a "New Groundbreaker Artist of the Week", Park is currently working on a full-length album to be released Summer 2003.

"Gorgeous country-tinged, Nick Drake-sparse folky songs about missed love &
opportunities" (LA New Times)

"Take the astrogliding slickness of John Denver, the cross genre ingenuity
of Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and the fashion sense of the Silverlake retropolis and
you've only begun to glimpse into the world of Patrick Park" (LA Weekly)

"Park comes from a similarly lyrical school of alt.country songwriting as Ryan Adams". (NME)

Patrick Park recently toured/played supports for Beth Orton, Alfie, Julia Fordham, Richard Buckner, Gomez, and Tracy Bonham.

perfect sit by a fire, read a book, tunes
I bought the cd on the recommendation of my friend, Jon Mattox, from the bands "F" and "Laughing with LuLu". He was so right...this is exactly my kind of music...so thoughtful and mellow. Light a fire, grab a good book and a soft blanket, and relax.
