“Patrick Dalton is something of a musical encyclopedia. Ask him to play Metallica’s ‘Master of Puppets’ and he will oblige, then follow up with Paul Simon’s ‘Graceland’ and ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ by Kid Cudi. Dalton doesn’t simply play guitar or write songs, he absorbs music, breathes it in, digests it and assimilates it.
Dalton’s own music, while strikingly original and nuanced, has a familiarity to it—there’s Delta blues in his finger picking, folk and hip hop in his storied lyrics and breathy voice, big band in his trumpet playing, and classic American songwriting in his melodies. His songs come to terms with everything from death to macropolitics to economics, and while his subject matter may be heavy at times, Dalton’s songs leave you pensive rather than downtrodden, interested rather than pessimistic.
Dalton has lent his talents as both musician and sound engineer to many musical projects, including The Proud Flesh, Sidewalk Dave, Elison Jackson, Ports of Spain, and Ceschi. His flair for dynamics and arrangement is evident in his work as both producer and singer-songwriter, and his collaborations within the New England music scene only serves to expand his encyclopedic tendencies, volume by volume.”
