Contemporary country with deep traditional country roots, an occasional touch of bluegrass or folk, and sometimes the character of light favorites or pop music
K A Patterson brings to the table a fresh and innovative twist to the Classic Country sound. With each new collection of his writing that I hear I think ”wow, these songs are brilliant” or ”this is as good as Country gets”. And then he tops it with the next session. His most recent offerings are no exception. I CAN ONLY BE YOUR FRIEND and LOST WITHIN YOUR CHARM are truly great traditional songs. And what can you say about my favorite of the bunch, MONTGOMERY IN THE RAIN? What a cool Bluegrass tune with an awesome feel, lyrics, production – everything! But it isn’t just about slick production. K A writes remarkable Country songs with strong, infectious melodies and smart, meaningful lyrics, built around the true Country sound. Coupled with the great production quality, that makes his “Montgomery In The Rain” CD a “must listen” on the Nashville Independent Artist list. I urge everyone to give a listen and become familiar with K A Patterson. It’s an amazing musical journey…

THANK YOU SO MUCH for coming to my page on this web site, and please know that your visit here is appreciated more than I can tell you! I’m K A PATTERSON, and I’m not your average musician. In fact, my journey here is probably unlike 98% of the Singer/Songwriter stories out there. But I’m saving that for the BIO section because right here I’d rather tell you about the CD that Steven Sharp referred to above.
The music is an unusual blend of Classic Country sound with state-of-the-art Country Music composition, instrumentation, and production. My writing style, coupled with the impeccable vocal stylings of (mostly) Grand Ole Opry performer, Mike Lusk, and the talents of Nashville’s finest instrumentalists and great Producers, give the PARADISE BAND that difficult-to-find sound I call “Contemporary Traditional”.
What emerges from A Writer’s Paradise Studio, under the guidance of Producer Stacy Hogan, is always superior, and the lyric-less instrumental tacks get better and better. Thus the Karaoke versions of several songs on this CD are marketable in the EASY LISTENING and INSTRUMENTAL genres, as well as to TV and Motion Picture production.
The “Montgomery In The Rain” album contains 11 songs with PRINTED LYRIC SHEETS and LINER NOTES from industry icon, Steven Sharp. Plus you get the outstanding INSTRUMENTAL version of 9 songs – a total of 20 tracks!! With a CD capacity of 80 minutes of music – you get 76:50 on this one. And there are NO COMPRESSED FILES (mp3’s, etc.) here. All tracks are full-blown .wav files, just as they’re created in studio – a full 775 MEGABYTES of music on this CD ! !
