Patrick Sweany likes the spaces in between.

On a given night (or on a given album) hell swing through blues, folk, soul, bluegrass, maybe some classic 50s rock, or a punk speedball. Hes a musical omnivore, devouring every popular music sound of the last 70 years, and mixing em all together seamlessly into his own stew. Yet, the one thing that most people notice about Patrick isnt his ability to copy  its his authenticity. Like his heroes, folks like Bobby Blue Bland, Eddie Hinton, Doug Sahm, Joe Tex, Patrick somehow manages to blend all of these influences into something all his own.

Its no wonder that as a kid he immersed himself in his dads extensive record collection: 60s folk, vintage country, soul, and, of course, blues. Patrick spent hours teaching himself to fingerpick along to Leadbelly, Lightnin Hopkins, and other folk-blues giants.

In his late teens, Patrick began playing the clubs and coffeehouses around Kent, OH. He quickly gained a reputation for the intricate country blues style he was developing: part Piedmont picking, part Delta slide  with an equally impressive deep, smooth vocal style.

Now, twenty years, six critically acclaimed records and one massively viral song (Them Shoes) later, Patrick Sweany has expanded his touring radius to 49 states, Canada, and Europe, both headlining and supporting acts such as The Black Keys, Tedeschi Trucks, The Wood Brothers, Hot Tuna, and others on tour.

Latest record, Ancient Noise (a title lifted from fellow NE Ohio musicians Devo), was recorded to tape at legendary Phillips Recording in Memphis with GRAMMY-winning producer/engineer Matt Ross-Spang at the helm. It features the incredible backing talents of Ken Coomer on drums (ex-WILCO), Ted Pecchio on bass (Susan Tedeschi, Col. Bruce Hampton), and Charles Hodges from Al Greens Hi Rhythm Section on keyboards.
