Patrice Webb is a singer songwriter who’s life takes her from the back-roads of the Sierra Nevada to the hills of Northern Idaho where she lives with her husband and a family of 4 legged critters.  Patrice’s songs tell of the lives of those who’s stories make up the vibrant tapestry known as “Americana”. These are songs that are sung in a voice full of poignancy and humor and are described as “snapshots in time told on a bed of folk, country, swing, and the blues.”

Although Patrice is often compared to 60s iconic folk singers such as Joan Baez and Judy Collins, she also takes inspiration from the music of Bob Wills, Hank Williams,  Sister Rosetta Tharp, and Django Reinhardt.  As a result a result of this multi-colored musical stew, her music swings to the beat of 1940s western swing, lingers a bit on what might be called “barefoot gypsy jazz” then veers off into honky tonkin’ country and bluegrass before it rests on the sweet sounds of quiet story telling folk – Oh and did we mention the blues?

Patrice has released two CDs, “Photographs” in 2011 and “Turning of the Page” in 2014.  Both CDs have been receiving international airplay and have been receiving praise for their diversity and vivid storytelling. Her music is best described as Americana that homemade with pride in a way that defines and speaks of a life of more than 50 years walking the back roads of a diverse musical tapestry known as “Americana”.

    Great job on your second CD. I am only sorry that I missed you when you played last Saturday in Garden Valley.
    So, you and Bill moved to Idaho? Where abouts and when did you move. My sister and husband moved to Boise last October and love it. I will be making a trip in June to see them.
    Looking forward to purchasing your new CD. Say “hello” to Bill
