Patrick Park

Raised within the American southwest, singer/songwriter Patrick Park started composing music and playing in rings like a middle-school student. His mom was a released poet and his dad was deep-rooted in folk and blues, as well as the youthful Recreation area — whose family members resided a stone’s toss from the popular Red Stones Amphitheater — got motivation from those parents, ultimately developing an folksy, acoustic audio that would later on permeate his information. Recreation area opted for a big change in his early 20s and ventured out East for the busyness of NEW YORK. Another move brought him to LA in 1999. There, he trained karate to make some cash while also concentrating on mastering your guitar. He soaked up the noises of John Lee Hooker and Sister Rosetta Tharp while adoring the stunning chaos from the Pixies as well as the Smiths. Recreation area had discovered himself a group, a musical sphere that could inspire him to create music on a specialist level, and he shortly formed a connection with manufacturer Dave Trumfio (Billy Bragg and Wilco, the Handsome Family members). Both wrote, documented, and mixed materials for Park’s debut record during the summertime of 2002. Alt-country vocalist/songwriter Tim Easton, pedal metal participant Eric Heywood, and ex-Creeper Lagoon drummer Dave Kostiner became a member of them within the studio room as Recreation area honed a sensitive and deeply reflective folk-tinged audio. Recreation area examined his music over the live entrance aswell, playing displays with famous brands Julia Fordham, Gomez, Beth Orton, and Richard Buckner. His self-released demonstration, The Cellar Tapes, created a significant buzz prior to the year’s end, and Beneath the Unminding Skies implemented in Feb 2003. Recreation area has agreed upon with Hollywood Information by this aspect, as well as the label released his folk-tinged studio room debut, Loneliness Understands My Name, that same July. Park’s period with Hollywood Information became brief, and he partnered using a different label, Curb Charm, for the discharge of Everyone’s in Everyone in 2007. The album’s initial track, “Lifestyle is a Melody,” was selected as the last song within the series finale from the O.C., which netted Recreation area some additional enthusiasts. Three years later on, he returned having a third recording, Come EXACTLY WHAT WILL, having released a set of EPs within the interim.
