Listen to what Jorma says!
“If there was any justice in this old world, Patrick Sweany would already be a big star! Since deserving doesn’t seem to have much to do with anything, it’s up to us to treat ourselves to Pat’s new recordings. Quite simply, he’s just the best… and I’ve been a fan for a long time. Dig it yourself and tell a friend!” - Jorma Kaukonen (Hot Tuna, Jefferson Airplane)
“Patrick speaks the truth in his songs.” - Dan Auerbach (Black Keys)
“His music has a loose, aggresive edge, but in his quiter moments, Sweany recalls the supple beauty of Ry Cooder’s 70s readings of Depression-era pop blues.” - MOJO (UK) “New Blues Explosion!”
“Effortlessly cool, sunburt soul.”- Nashville Tennessean
“For those who love the Blues but are bored with the tight-assed “white guys in blazers” style and prefer something more adventurous, Sweany is a slam-dunk. The new album is a start-to-finish thrill, partly due to the singer/songwriter/guitarist’s lack of “stick to the script” Blues theory. Sweany dips into the more folksy side of Blues, slinky R&B, early Rock & Roll, ’70s Blues Rock and dirty Garage Blues. That’s not to say that Sweany is for White Stripes fans only; the man has mad-crazy skills in whatever style he’s exploring and redecorating, something even the staunchest “back in my day” curmudgeon is sure to appreciate if they give it an open-minded listen.” - Cincinnati CityBeat
“A few years ago at the Blues & Heritage Festival in Wheeling, WV, I heard Patrick Sweany getting down. I wasn’t surprised at the power and proficiency in his blues, because I’d heard him before…one of his original songs devastated me, because I’ve sure enough lived it. I wished I’d written it. He sat in with me and Pintop Perkins at our concert there, and I knew I had to introduce him to you.” - Steady Rollin’ Bob Margolin, Blues Revue
“Sweany seamlessly melds indie rock with blues, soul and Americana. “ - Chicago Sun-Times
“Sweany sings with one of those genre-defying, deeply soulful voices that Dan Penn used to turn into gold. “ - Arkansas Times
“21st Century Blues – Fans of new-school blues rockers like Derek Trucks, Susan Tedeschi and JJ Grey should get to know Patrick Sweany. He expertly balances his love for classic blues and modern rock. “ - Rhapsody.com
“More kids are alright thanks to Patrick Sweany. Who better than Sweany to impart lessons learned through Eddie Hinton, John Lee Hooker and Ray Charles — role models who inspired his own path of righteous guitar licks and rich, classy vocals. With textured inflection, he comes across as both tough and romantic; hopeless and rock-solid.” - Salt Lake City Weekly
“Echoes of Sam Cooke and Marv Johnson…bind this record together and capture the Rust Belt rocker’s soulful drawl. (Sweany’s) strongest album to date.” - Pop Matters
“To say Patrick Sweany is just a Blues musician is like saying Coke is just a soft drink. A Sweany set can veer from soulful, slow burn, John Lee Hooker-style blues to swampy, delta-country pickin’ to white-hot rockabilly…Sweany has arrived as a major talent.” - Cleveland Scene Best of Cleveland Award
