Pat Johnson - Guitars & Vocal

Billy MacInnis - Fiddle

Maurice Roulette - Harmonica

Recorded at Patunes Studio, Charleston Lake, Ontario Cover Art Florance McLenaghan Design Catherine Fifield

"I’ve really been enjoying the Pat Johnson record, Come On In My Kitchen. As the title suggests it’s an invitation into Pat’s world. He’s got a gentle way of breathing new life into some classic blues tunes, he’s made them his own while remaining faithful to the energy behind the originals. That’s not an easy task but Pat’s got the touch.

It’s often been said that you can judge someone by the company they keep and with Billy MacInnis (www.billymacinnis.ca) and Maurice Roulette in the mix …judge away. The first tune that struck me was the Robert Johnson cover, and title track, Come on in My Kitchen, it feels raw around the edges and that’s what gives it life and in this performance he nails the mood. The recording itself is clear but homey- it really feels like it was recorded in a kitchen. I can smell the cornbread cooling on the counter.

Pat Johnson has played guitar and taught near his home in southern Ontario for a couple of decades now. I suspect his playing and his voice will age well, just like the blues players of the past – his idols. With that in mind I’m eager to hear what he does next."

Stumps

Stumps – commentary on popular culture that I live in regionally, globally, in the cosmos.  Observations on behaviour is the theme that connects the seemingly scattered moods of these songs.  Working with the futility of being creative and what it is to share the product of that creativity. What does it mean to write a song?  What does it mean to listen to music?  Does it mean anything at all?  I could have just shared a meme – I choose music. 

 

"It's wonderful roots collection. Loved the diversity! A real showcase of your musicianship and songwriting. It's fun how it goes from delta blues to surf to rock blues to front porch and beyond. A very strong album." 
Bryan Klausing, Acoustic Rainbow

Imagine Blind Lemon Jefferson met up with John Philip Sousa on his way to the Blue Note. Down home toe-tapping acoustic roots music performed on TUBA, mandolin, slide guitar and drums. 

 

 

"A sort of crossing between the legendary Hot Tuna and Leon Redbone as this trio can surely play pre-war blues very well but with the attitude of a (small) band from the early times of jazz."
Massimo Ferro, Italy www.highway61.it

Pat’s second record, Pitchin’ Day, has a rural rock feel somewhere between Mississippi John Hurt and Tom Petty, or Mance Lipscomb and Stephen Stills. 

 

 "The CD opens with a tribute to Warren Zevon, "Old Velvet Nose" and another number is definitely worth mentioning "Baby Surely Do", a nice number of Delta blues played with bottleneck and mandolin. But the nicest number on this CD for my part is "Broken Tooth", a funny story about looking for places to play "gigs" with a slide (!!!) throughout the whole number. Humour is indeed the fine-spun thread throughout the whole CD, the songs are simple, funny and subtle. As a guitarist Pat Johnson stands as his own man and is a master of "Piedmont fingerpicking". So for the lovers of fingerpicking blues and folk music this CD is definitely worth listening to."
Rootstime – Belgium

Is Pat’s debut release and features 11 original songs ranging in style from the Classic Piedmont single entendre blues of “Stinky Woman Blues” (yes it’s a love song), the angry hillbilly reggae of “26 Years” and a beatnik gumshoe groove on “Pocket Full Of Dirt”.  A healthy personal vibe was created by enlisting only great friends and great musicians such as; Rob Joanisse (Bran Van 3000), Guy Kay (Luba, Cirque du Soleil), Chris DeZordo (Producer, Veronica Speedwell) and Matthew “Tuba” Wilson.

“Rather than sounding derivative Johnson seems to have something happening that’s purely his own.  If you like music that seems to have been conceived on a country front porch, this is for you.” 
T. Bruce Wittet, Muzik Etc.  

Pat Johnson knows a thing or two about style. The blues loving singer-songwriter from Brockville, ON has crafted an admiral debut … clean finger-style guitar gives the bluesier material a Mississippi John Hurt sort of charm and his lyrics are humorous and entertaining. Would surely make even Taj Mahal crack a smile.
