Texas born singer-songwriter Jon Pattie, has an extraordinary way of cutting straight through to the core of his listeners’ emotions.
With a passion for songwriting running through his veins from an early age, Pattie’s fervent lyrics and sparkling melodies expose a truly sensitive artist whose soul-shattering vocals have the power to provoke a profound response.
Influenced by modern legends like John Mayer and Ed Sheeran, this natural-born guitarist also holds a degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Texas. A stark contrast, some would say, to his staggering creative prowess, and another aspect that makes his upcoming project all the more intriguing.
Coming off the release of his sophomore EP 321, Pattie is currently preparing a four-part EP project that will take his artistic development to the next level. It’s a project that will give listeners an intimate glimpse into Jon Pattie the artist as well as Jon Pattie the man. “I have been going through a lot of personal changes over the last year and so my lyrics and sound have changed as well,” he explains. “Each EP is simply a story that defines who I am as a person and how I have evolved over the last couple years since starting my music career.”
Acting as chapters in the short story of “Jon Pattie,” each EP will contain songs that reveal a different facet of his personality and recounts a journey of Pattie’s exploration of himself and his evolving narrative about his search for who he is and the man he wants to be. “As of the last year I have been asking myself, ‘Who is Jon Pattie,’ and I have had a lot of difficulty answering that question,” he reveals. “I’ve been struggling to define myself and have confidence in who I am as a person and individual. A lot of the songs off of these upcoming releases are written about me exploring my emotions and who I am. I’ve always used writing and music to express myself and figure out how I am feeling about life in general. These songs will portray a 24-year-old man growing up in the 21st century and finding out what and how he wants to leave his mark in life.”
Jon Pattie’s newest music project represents his new sound and getting to know more about Jon on a personal level. The first volume of the Reflections four-part series is anticipated for release November 7, 2018.
