Nashville vocalist/guitarist Patrick Sweany doesn’t hold back on his latest studio album, Ancient Noise. Ancient Noise is Patrick Sweany’s eigth full-length album, and it finds Sweany in top form, willing to push himself stylistically to great effect.
(4/5) If the blues torch stands a chance of being passed down to the next generation, it’s going to be by the works of artists like Gary Clark Jr. and Patrick Sweany. By mingling the spirit of the blues with a firm singer-songwriter grasp, Patrick Sweany has tapped into a gripping musical direction that feels like a natural and effective way to update the basics of the genre without losing, or diluting, its inherent edge.” ~American Songwriter (Ancient Noise review)
Hailing from Austin, Texas, The Sideshow Tragedy is an indie blues-roots-rock duo. Austin Live Weekly put it this way: “Only having two members in the band, it’s hard to believe how much noise comes forth from the blues-rock duo, Sideshow Tragedy. Singleton has the stage presence of Iggy Pop and Keith Richards combined, and he wields his steel guitar like a warlock, playing overdriven riffs with a feral intensity.”
