Robert Patrick is the perfect mix of opposites, the son of a preacher and a bastard reject of glossed out punk rock. Sounding more like a vinyl record hero of bygone days, his voice tells you a story simply by being heard; it tells of the weary road of the vagabond and of the holy light of redemption. His tone tells you that its been there in the worst of ways and has been purified in the fire of survival. In his forthcoming album, “Slave The Pain”, Robert Patrick peels back the veneer of pop music, pulls hard against your heart and gives it to you straight. Like a tatted and tattered prophet of rock and roll, he tells you the ugly truth In a beautiful way. After you hear him sing, you’ll see the light in his dirt road chapel of song.
