Patrice Webb is a singer songwriter who’s life takes her from the back-roads of the Sierra Nevada to the hills of Northern Idaho where she lives with her husband and a family of 4 legged critters. Patrice’s songs tell of the lives of those who’s stories make up the vibrant tapestry known as “Americana”. These are songs that are sung in a voice full of poignancy and humor and are described as “snapshots in time told on a bed of folk, country, swing, and the blues.”
Although Patrice is often compared to 60s iconic folk singers such as Joan Baez and Judy Collins, she also takes inspiration from the music of Bob Wills, Hank Williams, Sister Rosetta Tharp, and Django Reinhardt. As a result a result of this multi-colored musical stew, her music swings to the beat of 1940s western swing, lingers a bit on what might be called “barefoot gypsy jazz” then veers off into honky tonkin’ country and bluegrass before it rests on the sweet sounds of quiet story telling folk – Oh and did we mention the blues?
In 2010 and again in 2011 Patrice was a finalist in the Celebration of the Song songwriter competition sponsored by KZFR in Chico California. In 2012, her song “The Small Stuff” was awarded third place in the Indie International Song Contest. Her CD “Photographs” has been receiving airplay though out the Western States and has been garnering praise for its diversity and vivid storytelling. Her music is best described as Americana that homemade with pride in a way that defines and speaks of a life of more than 50 years walking the back roads of a diverse musical tapestry known as “Americana”.
