Album Notes
Patricia Silverberg is a raw intelligent powerful diverse folk rock artist with the voice and vision of Natalie Merchant and the guitar styling of Ani DiFranco with a little Lisa Loeb and Suzanne Vega thrown in. Her poetically profound lyrics teamed with her energetic stage presence has made her one of Arizona’s most sought after artists who is quickly moving beyond the Southwest. This award-winning songwriter has opened for top 40 artists, has received radio play across the country and now beginning to tour with stops in Memphis, NYC, and California. Her performances range from large out-door music festivals in front of thousands to intimate coffee houses with enraptured small audiences. She consistently ranks in the top 100 on the Reverbnation Folk Charts alongside Dar Williams, John Prine, and the Indigo Girls. She is highly influenced by the artists of Lilith Fair, especially Natalie Merchant who has personally authorized Patricia to record her songs and provided lots of TLC.

Patricia originally hails from NYC. She began playing the guitar at the age of seven and studied voice with several Broadway veterans. Within Arizona, she has been personally invited to many events including performing on the main stage at Pride in the Pines where she opened for Chaka Khan and Sophie B. Hawkins who described her voice as amazing and appeared on the same stage as such legends as Martha Wash and Tiffany. In addition to Pride in the Pines, Patricia has performed at dozens of venues including Flagstaff's premiere artist showcase Heritage Square, Border's, Phoenix Pride, WestGate City Center, Desert Ridge Marketplace, and tons of folk festivals, street festivals, coffee houses, cafes, and bars. She also has been a featured artist on KKNT's Arizona Music Cafe.

Outside of Arizona, Patricia showcased at the 2009 International Folk Alliance Conference in Memphis and is scheduled to perform at the 2009 San Diego Pride Festival. She is also has been invited to showcase at Gavin Degraw’s National Underground in NYC. She recently won featured airplay on NYC’s Radio Crystal Blue 2009 Airplay Vote and ranked in the 10 top against well-established Indie artists such as Melissa Ferrick. She is not only on the playlist of Radio Crystal Blue but also NetteRadio, Celebrate Radio, Women's Radio, Radio Phoenix, and has been heard all around the world on Live365.

A Raw and an Intelligent Album
I stumbled upon Patricia Silverberg while looking on and saw her name in a tag. I decided to do a bit of research and found her myspace and her cd on CDBaby.

After my first listen, I felt melancholy. I wasn't sure if that is how she wanted the listener to feel, or what. I listened to it again and it grew on me.

Some favorite songs are Honest Grace and As Simple as it Seems (the title track), which by no means is simple - it is constructed with a complexity to make the listener think with the chords.

She has a very unique and beautiful voice - definitely one of a kind, not trying to compare her to nobody else because I can't.

She does a good job with the two Natalie Merchant covers, "Beloved Wife" and "My Skin" - as a big Natalie Merchant fan, I think her voice and her music would have suited her fare better with excerpts from the Motherland album as it suits Patricia's style of singing and guitar playing.

This is a CD I would recommend to other folkies who are looking for a grittier feel on acoustic music with thought-provoking lyrics.

Good job!
