Patrick K started playing music at the early age of thirteen. His Dad, a musician himself, taught him how to play the keyboards, and he immediately took to it. There was always a musical instrument at hand as his dad played in bands such as "The Arrivals” and “The Dukes of Jazz." The middle of five children, Patrick was the only sibling which exhibited a great love for music. From a young age, Patrick knew he wanted to be a musician. Patrick started his first band with his buddies called EXIT at the age thirteen. At the age of fifteen Patrick got into heavier music and started a punk band called STD in which he played bass. At the age of 18 Patrick was nearly killed in a terrible motorcycle accident. His injuries were severe and took him away from music, After a few failed band attempts he chose to take a different path in life and turned away from his musical dreams. Then, for reasons unknown, at the age of thirty three, Patrick suddenly picked up a guitar and taught himself some chords, and hasn’t put it down since. Finding writing music very theraputic, Patrick started writing songs inspired by his life experiences.His musical range varies from straight rock, acoustic rock, to rock ballads. He also recorded a two song Christmas album for an Irish Homeless Charity released in 2008. He was recently awarded one finalist and three semi finalists awards for the well known UK Songwriting Competition.His debut cd "Strange Town"was released in Nov.2009 and his second cd "Fade Away" recorded in LA with producer Mikal Reid was just released in March of 2011.
