Patrick Carroll has found two constants wherever his well-traveled life has taken him - community and a stage.
During his early twenties, he lived and performed in a small Chinese province where he became such a local staple that they put up a billboard in town advertising his gigs. From there, he moved to Brooklyn and ended up touring the country with his indie rock outfit, Les Racquet. When he landed on Tybee Island in Savannah, Georgia, Carroll found himself doing gender-bending Patsy Cline covers every week. At each step along the way, Carroll used his command of the Great American Songbook as an entry point into new communities and local culture.
In that diversity of life experience and appreciation for the American canon, you’ll find two foundational elements of Carroll’s solo project, Patsy. To find the other major inspiration, you have to travel to his current hometown of Rockaway Beach, Queens. Rockaway is an open-minded, surf haven on the outskirts of New York City. It’s the sort of tight-knit, blue collar artist community where the guy singing to a packed house on a Friday night will be tending bar at the same place on Saturday. Artistically, it’s a vibrant young scene that has become a beacon of experimentation and collaboration, and still finds time to surf. Between his solo work and role as a guitarist in Wild Yaks, Patsy has established himself in the innovative music world brewing in Rockaway. His new EP will surely lead Rockaway to new heights.
