Artist History

As a songwriter Robert R Patterson strives to help listeners escape their own problems and experience emotions and feelings through the songs. Listeners have commented on these feelings which compel them to listen and relax. The songs can be as simple as the smile on a little one, or as complex as life itself. He has been recording and producing his own songs for the past 5 years.


As a lifelong musician, his composition style has been strongly influenced by impressionist art, classical music, and most importantly, the world around him . Over the years he has played classical, flat top, and electric guitar. He has also played French horn, piano, and organ. His vocal experiences include Madrigal, renaissance and small a-cappella ensembles. He has also been a vocal soloist. His instrumental music has been compared to guitar versions of Scott Joplin, or Aaron Copeland. Folk songs have been compared to Eric Clapton, or John Prine and yet most people say that the songs are truly unique. This makes comparison to other artists difficult.


It is difficult to put a genre to his compositions as they are truly unique.

  "Never Said Good Bye" by Robert R. Patterson (Folk Artist from Illinois(IL))
POSTED BY: momof5pacs POSTED ON: 21 Nov 2009 08:01 PM

RadioIndy is pleased to present Robert R. Patterson with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Never Said Good Bye "

Robert R. Patterson’s second CD, “Never Said Good Bye” finds the guitarist / singer-songwriter furthering an exploration of his unique songcraft in ways as original and inventive as they are satisfying. A virtuoso on guitar, Patterson turns his acoustic and electric guitars loose over 12 songs that delve into classical, folk, and blues influences which, nevertheless, blend seamlessly into a whole of potent musicality. Where the song “Five Dollar Mohawk” is a blues-rock workout with slashing slide licks, the hauntingly beautiful “Smile Little One” features acoustic picking as delicate as it is pristine. “Little Spanish Evening,” an acoustic solo instrumental, is a veritable wordless lullaby, while the CD opener and titled track, “Never Said Good Bye” is an oddly effective composition that’s both exotic and eccentric. Much of the album finds Patterson in elemental mode, his lone guitar and rich voice breathing life into songs of loss and redemption, but on the ballad, “Life,” a deep and sonorous cello accompaniment raises the performance to solemnity. As second releases go, Robert R Patterson’s “Never Said Good Bye” CD is a fine sophomore album, building on the echoes of his first, while pointing forward with his evolving potential.
