Portrait of Patty Blee

Patty Blee


About Patty Blee

Absecon, NJ

If you can imagine Sheryl Crow meeting Bonnie Raitt in a corner bar as they kick back a few cold ones with Lucinda, then you'll have no problem envisioning PATTY BLEE pulling up a stool and fitting right in.
Her husky voice, confessional songs and rootsy sound have earned her numerous comparisons to such artists. Displaying a distinctive guitar style full of bass lines and grooves, Patty intertwines memorable melodies into mid and uptempo songs of love and longing. A wide range of influences are evident in her musical pallet-- blues, folk, celtic, country, and rock.

This year she celebrates the release of her new EP, "FROM THE INSIDE", 6 tracks of pure heart and soul, memorably solidified by a strong and unmistakable voice surrounded by some of the finest americana musicians around. This release is a refreshing look at a genre that increasingly knows no bounds, inspired by her travels from coast to coast and heart to heart...co-produced with Eric Corne, 4 of the tracks were recorded at Mad Dog Studios: Burbank, CA.

Patty's previous recordings include her Treasure Records debut "DISGUISE" released in 2003. It is a testament to her work that she was able to assemble an all-star cast to help record her songs. Co-produced by Randy Friel (BeauSoleil) and Richard Crooks (Dylan, Dr. John) at Scullville Studios in NJ, mixed by legendary recording engineer Shelly Yakus (John Lennon, The Band, Tom Petty), "DISGUISE" is sure to have a permanent spot in any aficionado's collection. The stellar group of talent behind Patty includes Bob Dylan band regulars Larry Campbell on guitar and Tony Garnier on bass, with Richard Crooks on drums. John Hammond Jr. makes a guest appearance on harmonica as well as Augie Meyers (Bob Dylan, Tom Waits, Doug Sahm) on accordion. Even violinist / vocalist Soozie Tyrell (Bruce Springsteen) lends a hand.

"In short, I was knocked out.," said Peter North, Music Director of CKUA (Edmonton, Canada)

The Atlantic City Press said the "DISGUISE" displayed, "wonderfully written and crafted songs." and was chosen 17 in their list of the top 50 CD releases for the year.

A pivotal stepping stone in Patty's run of success was her performance at the 2002 Appel Farm Music and Arts Festival (NJ) alongside the likes of Jackson Browne and Jonatha Brooke as well as an appearance on the renowned "Folk Show" on WXPN in Philadelphia with Gene Shay.

Patty's next release, "ACOUSTIC VIBE", is a collection of stripped down acoustic arrangements of songs from "DISGUISE" as well as a batch of new, emotionally revealing songs. A representation of how she is most comfortable...just her and her guitar. As Blee told Atlantic City Weekly, she has always been inspired by "acoustic-based singer-songwriters - artists who display incredible courage by what they reveal of themselves."

"Songs written by the blood of the heart appeal to me"...with that in mind, give Patty's music a listen and understand what everyone is raving about.
