Album Notes
“…Pat Wictor walks onstage and sits down. He places a Guild DV-52 flat across his lap and begins playing slide guitar. The sounds are snaky and sizzling. He sings in a steady and clear voice, sometimes displaying a riveting falsetto. Soft-spoken and articulate, in the 1930’s he could have been a dust bowl preacher. The sermons, accompanied by the choir of his slide guitar, would have brought comfort to many a soul…”
--Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live

Pat Wictor plays “heart-felt blues-based roots music like the only begotten son of Bonnie Raitt and Chris Smither,” says Jim Motavalli of WPKN radio. Blues Revue magazine calls him “daring and unusual.” With flowing red hair and zen-like calm, he brings a hush over an audience, weaving several parts on his guitar and reaching into each listener’s heart.

Pat’s fifth CD, "Heaven Is So High…And I’m So Far Down," was released in July ’06. The disc features standout originals like “I Will Walk With You,” “Rejoice in My Troubles,” and the title track. The CD also includes distinctive versions of Bob Dylan’s “Oxford Town,” Dave Carter’s “When I Go,” and a rousing version of “You Got To Move,” featuring Abbie Gardner of Red Molly.

I'm really enjoying Pat Wictor's beautiful, clear voice.
I'm enjoying Pat Wictor's latest CD, great, clear voice and nice mix of folksy, bluesy songs. Looking forward to what he does next!

Tom Collins

Great album!! Exceeds my expectations!!
I first hear Pat on the XM Radio folk channel15, and I loved the singing. This cd is great and I am playing it every day. I would not hesitate to buy the next one when he produces it.

Steve Sykes

Outstanding CD, great material and a great voice
I bought this CD after hearing one cut on XM Radio. I am very impressed. It has not left my CD player since I got it. Outstanding job on cover of Dave Carter's "When I Go" I'm ready for his next CD.

Anthony Kimball

Another great album! Pat is in rare form. "Raise my voice" is ethereal, and his guitar on the whole album is striking. I Would not hesitate to recommend this cd whole-heartedly!

You wanted the best - you got it...
This is wonderful music. It is played and sung by a master craftsman. Mind-blowing songwriting and plenty of footnoting from those who came before - still possessing a sensiblity all its own. This CD is excellent from start to finish, and like its cover art with all the beautiful gnarled tree bark - you'll notice more and more with each listen. Very beautifully woven guitar parts and haunting yet consoling vocals line the unbeaten path of this work nicely. Thanks Pat. Thanks for good music.
