Release Date: September 6, 2016
Singer/songwriter, Pat Maloney has released his third full-length album, RIGHTHERE, which follows his previous releases, Root Rot (2013) and Repotting (2014). RIGHTHERE is made up of six tracks plus three short intermissions.
Pat’s vocals are rustic and rootsy, which always appeals to me, and I’m sure it will appeal to many of you, as well. “Right Here” stuck with me after the first listen, it’s got a beat that I found quite infectious. The next track is the first single from the album, “More To Love”, you can see the video for the track here.
“Drinking for three” is another that immediately stood out to me, from the beginning of the track which features whistling. One thing that I really like about this album is that it is completely unique, he is not sticking to a certain genre, or doing what would be expected, it’s full of surprises.
If asked what my favourite song on RIGHTHERE is, I would answer “Let Me Sleep Let Me Lie”, which I can’t get out of my head. The vocals on this track are beautiful and it has a sort of lullaby feel to it, very soft and calming, which is a bit different than the rest of the songs presented on this release.
If you’re looking for a new artist to check out, I would recommend you give Pat Maloney a chance, you might just find your new favourite song.
