  • Brandling Villa Haddricks Mill Road Newcastle upon Tyne, England, NE3 1QL United Kingdom (map)

“Played the album non-stop.  Just about word perfect on every song, now. Needless to say we both absolutely love the album.  We often ask ourselves what each song is about, we make our own stories up.  Our favourites are: Long Time Ago, Too Many Rivers, We Can Take Anything and End of the Rainbow.  I love them all. I think the vocal on Million Stars is brilliant.”. (GM)

 “......really well crafted songs, with several standouts! Be interested to know what you are pushing as singles? Musicianship really comes through also but what I really like about the album the most is range of subject matter, refreshingly diverse and the product of a thoughtful and empathetic soul!” (MF)

 “You are one of the most talented musicians eva seen love all your cd the words guitar sound of your voice you deserve all the best.” (JD)

"Relaxing in my tiny van on a very windy campsite near the sea for a few days. No tele, no laptop internet, just your cd ! So many great songs can't pic favs yet- perhaps Perfect Son, End of the Rainbow, and Red Noise....brilliant x (LCW)

  " I bought your CD …..I love it!! great playing (of course) ....your voice sounds great, too! (JH).”

" Been listening to your album and really impressed. Million Stars, wow!" (WH)

 “I have to be completely honest with you... I love every song you have on this cd.  They are all killer tunes. Very well produced, recorded and engineered.  Your vocals are spot on bro. 

 “My wife K and I listen to your songs all the time.  She said: is that Sting's new album!!!  .  I think Satellite is my favourite... and then the next song plays and I say... now that one is my favourite... and on and on! I don't usually try to be a part of anybody's mutual admiration society... unless I like what I hear.  You have the stuff my man.  The words, the voice, the music skills.   Every song is really great in my book.  I can't wait to hear what you do next.  Don't stray too far from what you already are doing.  It's magic.  I listen to your tunes in my Jeep Cherokee as I'm cruisin' through the mountains of West Virginia.  Perfect music for a beautiful sunny day! fyi: I have written a thousand songs or more... and if even one of them was as good as what you have done... I would be proud.  Keep rockin' Pat.  (ML, Virginia USA)

"....great show last night.  You played all my favourites, H was sick of me singing along. It was a brilliant idea to showcase the album. I was very impressed at how slick you and the band were and how close to the album you managed to get the sound. The way you played "Consider This" took it to a different class - brilliant. " (GM)
