Brace yourself as October is going to be an interesting month.
Pat Dam Smyth releases his single ‘Friends’ from his debut album, ‘The Great Divide’, a tribute to the value of friendship in itself.
Nothing quite grabs your attention like Pat Dam Smyth.
His music begins as soft and soulful, but it then explodes with heavy guitars, constant beating drums and raspy and rugged vocals that implode the entire track.
‘Friends’ is a track that exhibits a combination of folk music entwined with the rough edginess of punk rock.
It’s a real artwork of beautifully played music, ranging from pianos to trumpets, it’s like heading back into time and finding great solid music.
Pat has a gift with creating outstanding sounds with just himself and a guitar, he is a songwriter that been left out and forgotten.
‘Friends’ is the antidote to what’s missing in life, it is a song that express how grateful and appreciative that he has become of those around him.
It is a fantastic single associated with an album that clearly pushes the boundaries of music.
Pat Dam Smyth has depicted his life as “always on an endless trek” but with this album his endless trek will begin to slow down.
He has created a gateway between classic music to bluegrass, and it’s something that changes the way we appreciate music.
