Music is MORE than image.
Music is MORE than being seen and making it big.
Music is NOT a means of monetary gain.
Music is the interconnections, the vibrations, the relations between physical and spiritual.
Music is a conduit, a door way into the sheltered, quiet places we as humans have come to shut ourselves into,
Each individual note is a singular image. A frame of a moment, a color of a movement. The pattern of placement in music is like that of a painter. Each stroke bringing more definition to a concept. Ideals are portrayed as still lifes. Musician painting a moment of emotion for the listener. As the musician grows, so does the music. Tones are derived from a deeper understanding of self. Individual thoughts are expressed with clearer associations. Music bringing out the saddness, the thoughtfulness, the joy and surprise that life has to offer. Music that grows is music that changes, and music had the ability to change the course of a life. Whether that be the life of the musician or the life of the listener, music plays a pivotal role in the experience we call reality.
This life is presented in colorful tones of harmony and melody, shades of angst and confusion. Music is the embodyment of it all.
Patchwork Soul is a band of lessons learned. They are a band of constant maturity. As the songs progress from sad acceptance to bitter rage and guilt, they subdue into a final understanding of life. The situations presented by Patchwork Soul are always concluded. Either by a sense of self-loathing or by a sense of "it is what it is." Patchwork Soul shows that there is a process to be seen.
First, we are as broken. Second, as fault. And third, as an experienced voice on life.
Allow yourself some time with Patchwork Soul. Let John McHugh's guitar playing take you on a roller coaster ride of aggression, into waves of subtle understanding. Allow him to surprise you with the wonder of "how-the-hell-did-he-do-that?" Listen as Travis Hedwig's Jazz influenced organic style of attacking the bass take you underneath the subcontext of raw emotion. He is the carpet ride of calmness. Have Brandon Faulconer put you into a trance like state with his intricate off beats and half beats and fill in beats and steady beats... all those ups and downs that mimic the true power of living. And, listen as Robert Faust's voice brings passion to words, bringing a whole new belief to the concept of "say what you mean."
These guys work hard to break the molds of the music industry. They fight to write, to play. They fight to be heard amongst a world full of apathetical, hypothetical, and hypocritical pop culture entertainment.
