ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jersey Shore “Americana Roots Artist” is Treasure Records' newest, brightest star.
SOMERS POINT, NJ -- With female singer-songwriters once again thriving in the music industry, PATTY BLEE is already well on her way to joining the likes of Shawn Colvin, Dar Williams and Patty Griffin as a Triple AAA radio staple.

And there's no better way to introduce this rising new talent than with the release of Patty's well-regarded Treasure Records debut, DISGUISE.the album is 13 tracks of pure heart and soul, memorably solidified by a strong and unmistakable voice that's surrounded by some of the finest country soul musicians around. DISGUISE is a pleasant surprise -- a refreshing look at a genre that increasingly knows no bounds.

Patty is already off to an eventful start this year, earning many key opportunities and accolades.

"In short, I was knocked out.," said Peter North, Music Director of CKUA (Edmonton, Canada), after listening to DISGUISE.

A pivotal stepping stone in Patty's latest run of success was her performance at the Appel Farm Music and Arts Festival (Elmer, NJ) alongside the likes of Jackson Browne and Jonatha Brooke. Patty has recently appeared on the renowned "Folk Show" on WXPN/Philadelphia with Gene Shay and was selected to perform at the NEMO Music Showcase and Conference in Boston.

Recorded and co-produced by Randy Friel (BeauSoleil) and Richard Crooks at Scullville Studios and mixed by legendary recording engineer Shelly Yakus (John Lennon, Tom Petty), this record is sure to have a permanent spot in any aficionado's collection. The stellar group of talent behind Patty includes Bob Dylan band regulars Larry Campbell on guitar and Tony Garnier on bass, with Richard Crooks (Bob Dylan, Dr. John) on drums. John Hammond Jr. makes a guest appearance on harmonica as does Augie Meyers (Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Doug Sahm) on accordion. Violinist/vocalist Soozie Tyrell (Bruce Springsteen, Shawn Colvin, Sheryl Crow) also lends a hand!
Patty has developed a distinctive guitar style full of bass lines and grooves, and has intertwined memorable melodies into mid and uptempo songs of love and longing on DISGUISE. A wide range of influences are evident -- blues, folk, country, and rock. This album is just the beginning of a long road for a woman with so much to give.
The Atlantic City Press said the album displayed, "wonderfully written and crafted songs." With that in mind, give DISGUISE a listen and understand why everyone is raving about, PATTY BLEE

Soul Dancing
Ms. Blee:

I returned to your other MySpaceMusic site recently and encountered your song “Soul Dancing” for the first time.

WOW…

I haven’t had that kind of emotional response to a song in ten or more years. Man, I think that song is good. The impact of it is similar to the similarly titled (but not similar) song “Slow Dancing” by Johnny Rivers. Both are hauntingly beautiful and emotionally touching.

Additionally, there is a fascinating intellectual and emotional importance to the concept of “Soul Dancing”… Contacting souls in a relationship, and not just touching bodies.

In our culture, we tend to obsessively, and desperately fear two conflicting things…. Aloneness, and intimacy. The desperate nature of our fear of both makes it very difficult to confront and overcome the fear of either.

Genuine intimacy IS “mutual touching of souls” in a relationship. In our culture, intimacy is incredibly rare – and it’s more rare in romantic relationships than in most others. It is most frequently seen in parent/child relationships, “best friend” relationships, and sibling relationships.

Those few people brave enough and capable enough to make their very souls available to others they meet are (in every case) shining examples of humanity. And even those rare souls must encounter another soul brave enough and capable enough to allow such “soul access” or what you have called “soul dancing” does not actually occur in a romantic relationship.

I hope your song is an indication that you have found such a “soul touching” partner. It’s a wonderful thing on the rare occasions when it occurs.

Wishing you the best, and hoping it is so.

Verlon Gates (“Comanchemoon” and “HardTwistMusic.”)

Patty Blee's debut album, Disguise, won't go down in history as the most groundbreaking release of 2002, but in terms of quality and craftsmanship, Disguise has a lot going for it. The New Jersey native's specialty is earthy, bluesy roots rock and pop/rock with country and folk influences -- her approach is basically Bonnie Raitt meets Melissa Etheridge meets Sheryl Crow meets Lucinda Williams. And while Blee is hardly the only East Coast singer/songwriter who is doing this type of thing, she does it better than many of her contemporaries. Blee (who is heard on acoustic guitar) is an expressive vocalist, and her gritty and rugged yet vulnerable outlook serves her well on rootsy originals like "Soul Dancing" and "Down to the Water." Much to their credit, producers Randy Friel and Richard Crooks don't overproduce. They obviously realize that an artist as rootsy and bluesy as Blee is better off with a real, honest to God band sound -- not a high-tech, programmed sound -- and they see to it that Disguise ends up sounding organic rather than slick. Under Friel and Crooks' direction, Blee doesn't use any drum machines or high-tech synthesizers. Organ and acoustic piano are the only keyboard instruments, and the producers maintain a down-home ambience with instruments like the mandolin, the violin, and the accordion. One of the musicians employed on this disc is accordion player Augie Meyers, who is known for his work with the Sir Douglas Quintet and adds a slight Tex-Mex/southwestern flavor to some of the tunes (especially "Lucky Ones" and the title track). Again, Disguise doesn't pretend to reinvent the roots rock wheel, but it's a solid, respectable debut that will appeal to those who have a lot of Raitt and Etheridge CDs in their collections. ~ Alex Henderson, All Music Guide
