Indie recording artist Patrick Leonard has beautiful songwriting swagger. *It’s important to note here that we’re not talking about the mega producer/songwriter Patrick Leonard of Madonna fame**
The indie music artist Patrick that we present before you here and now is relatively fresh meat and his debut solo album Begin the Beginning has garnered him some notable attention and even more notable comparisons. His vocal styling and melodic arrangements have been compared to George Harrison.
This California guy (musician) has music goodness seeping out his good, sweet, creative song writing pores. New to the interviewing process I wasn’t able to really get very definitive answers to my questions but in Patrick’s defense I am an awesome force of journalistic nature and my questions have been known to break apart subatomic particles. I was however, bowled over by his humility and openness. It’s like he doesn’t even know what a masterpiece he has put together out the gate.
Begin the Beginning is a trip in a lost Beatle’s universe turned inside popwards. You think I’m trippin with the Harrison comparison right? Well….I’m not the only who’s heard it and it’s evident on tracks “The One” and “Down South” that he and Harrison probably have the same dreams if not arrangement esthetics.
It’s evident from the dreamy spaciousness of his lyrics that this crazy kid is a romantic and a dreamer at heart who still believes in love. When I listen to his album I believe in it too thanks to the vivid melodic soundscapes found in tracks “Majicku”, “Mars Theme” and title track “Begin the Beginning.”
