We’re really excited to welcome AK Patterson back to Paradiddles. They played in our garden back in August as part of a series of Revive Live shows by Music venues Trust and absolutely blew us, and everyone else away with their performance. Don’t miss the chance to see them in an intimate venue whilst they’re still playing them!
AK Patterson has been dubbed ‘a woman possessed’, disappearing to a place of fierce enchantment when she sings.
At the heart of each performance is her unique vocal style. One that evolved from her upbringing in a jazz-centric household, and influences from Bjork, Jeff Buckley, Ella Fitzgerald and Portuguese Fado musicians. Learning the subtleties and characteristics in each voice has helped her carve her own, which moves easily between sensitive to thrilling attack and moments of melismatic Eastern promise.
An accomplished guitar and fiddle player, she and her bandmates, Alfie Weedon and Nat Reading, build a rich musical world. The trio met whilst playing the Brighton music circuit and festival scene in 2015.
AK Patterson’s charged delivery cast against a backdrop of haunting and skilful instrumentation, makes every performance an absorbing experience, sucking you in with melancholic lyrics and then out of the darkness – a burst of savage, unfaltering honesty and release of untamed emotion.
Support to be announced.
