"Patty Larkin transmits electric magic." -- Boston Globe


Patty Larkin redefines the boundaries of folk-urban pop music with her inventive guitar wizardry and uncompromising vocals and lyrics. Acoustic Guitar hails her “ soundscape experiments ” while Rolling Stone praises her “ evocative and sonic shading .” She has been described as “ riveting ” (Chicago Tribune) , “ hypnotic” (Entertainment Weekly) and a “ drop-dead brilliant ” performer (Performing Songwriter).

Patty Larkin’s new release Still Green , her 13th recording is co-produced with Mike Denneen (Aimee Mann, Howie Day). Still Green plays out in Technicolor sound images, a kaleidoscope of sun and sea traveling from the fluorescent-lit hallways of grief to the warm pull of love, family and nature. Much of it written in a primitive dune shack on the Outer Banks of Cape Cod’s National Seashore, Still Green is a fresh approach to sound and life from a legendary songwriter who continues amaze.

Patty’s previous release, 25, celebrated a quarter century of music making with a 25 song career retrospective reworked with voice and guitar and 25 friends, among them Grammy winners: Rosanne Cash, Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin, Janis Ian, and a veritable who’s who of singer songwriters: Bruce Cockburn, Martin Sexton, Dar Williams, Greg Brown, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and others.
