Patrice Webb is a singer songwriter from Sandpoint Idaho where she lives on a rambling 23 acre homestead 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 four CDs, “Photographs” in 2011, “Turning of the Page” in 2014, “In My Sentimental Dreaming” in 2019 and “The Mountain, The Valley, The River, The Pine in 2022.   Her songs 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”.
