Dan Patterson is a West Texas based Americana singer-songwriter. With a focus on reviving the storytelling side of music, Dan draws much of his influence from artists such as Jason Isbell, Drew Kennedy, and John Moreland. Recently featured in the Fort Worth music publication, Rattle Magazine, Patterson has been creating quite the buzz over the last few months.
2018 is full of excitement, and most of that excitement stems from the fact Dan and the guys are headed back into the studio with Dave Percefull at YellowDog-Wimberely. With strong influences from song writers such as Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, and The White Buffalo, the new album is designed especially for those that enjoy the story-teller side of songwriting.
His first full album, “Smoke in My Lungs”, was recorded at YellowDOG Studios in Austin, TX, and is a collaboration of talent, including Dave Percefull, David Abeyta, and Kim Deschamps. “Smoke in My Lungs” has become an excellent launching point for Patterson’s emerging career. An internationally acclaimed album, voted the #11 album of 2013 by Southern Rock Brazil. The album also features several songs on New Slang’s “Top 100 Songs of 2013”.
