For the hundreds of blues rockin’ poseurs out there at your local open mic, there’s a select few that continue to rise above the fray. This past five years or so has seen the rise of talents like Gary Clark Jr. with Nashville’s Jas Patrick rising up out of his own scene.
Patrick, having already earned endorsements from Farmer Foot Drums, Shubb Capos and John Pearse Strings, continues to embrace his DIY aesthetic staying true to his initial processes. Patience in acquiring the necessary gear for his latest EP, Inky Bovine, paid off with his tireless work ethic and passion for writing and recording spilling out with every song.
Single “Harpy” is a strut into a incendiary blues rock territory, one that many who lack the requisite chops or authenticity fail to pull off. Stream Jas Patrick’s “Harpy” below and click through to snag it as a free download.
