Patrick Sweany, baby!

Take a look at Patrick's promo picture.

What do you expect to hear? "Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover, or in this case, a musician by his promo shot, but I'm pretty sure you're not going to get what you expect this time. No...better than that. So much better.

Take another good look at Patrick. Do you think he plays NME hyped new rave? Hmmm, no.

He's probably not a know tweedler and most likely not a knuckle dragging cock rocker either. How about quirky indie pop, literary pop, or some Pitchfork approved best new music? Nope. No, he's an honest, hard working, roots rockin' blues man from the rust belt. He can stir my rock juices til they are about to spill over.

Sample this:-

...and this:-

For his latest CD, Every Hour Is A Dollar Gone, Sweany had the help of blues musician's Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys. Auerbach co-produced and engineered the recordings. It goes without saying, that it's got that same vintage rock and roll sound that's found on many of The Black Keys' records.

From Orange To Pink" is a rambling, foot shufflin' boogie number, with the feel of dirty fingernails scraping the strings, while "Mom and Dad" has more of a rag-time feel that gets the hands clapping as well as the toes tapping.

I am hoping he'll tour around near me soon so that I can lose myself in his music again.
