Letter to Hampton

by Pat Smillie Band

Chicago-based band mixes it up with 10 new original songs. The album is a showcase for Smillie's husky vocals and the fine performances offered up by the band. Strong songwriting with a mess of r&b/blues/soul roots.

Album Notes
Born in Detroit, Pat Smillie began honing his vocal style while still in high school. Inspired by the Motor City's unique rock and soul vibration, he started out listening to Ray Charles, Mitch Ryder, Bob Seger, Joe Cocker & The Temptations and spent his teenage years singing in rock & soul cover bands on Detroit's southwest side. He moved to Chicago in 1992, where he has since become a fixture on the Chicago scene.

Down by the river is an awesome song. This dude gets down!!
This band is the reason I started listening to the blues.
I have a whole new sound introduced to me because of the way this guy jams. You cant help but to sing along everytime I play it.

Not just a blues CD, something for everyone
Letter to Hampton is not just a blues CD, it really has something for everyone. The CD moves from ballads to country to a motorcity feel to a quicker beat, all with a blues edge. This will be Pat's breakout CD- a must listen!
