Pat has been a pro musician most of his life, played in various bands, and as a solo artist, has opened for some major acts, but has recently been concentrating on writing. Pat has written over 400 songs in different genres, including country, pop, rock, blues, children's music, and holiday music. He writes, sings, produces, and plays all the instruments on 99% of all his recordings. He plays guitar, bass, mandolin, banjo, drums, and a little piano and fiddle. One of his songs was slated for a CD by a new artist, but it has yet to be released. Another of his songs is prominently featured in the critically acclaimed film "Van Vorst Park" starring Frank Vincent. His children's CD "In The Land Of Make Believe" is a CD Baby favorite, and they state they like it so much that if the customer doesn't like it, they will refund their money. Often compared to James Taylor, Pat is a consummate singer songwriter in his own right.
