Patrick James - All About To Change (Lyric Video)
Community Radio’s Australian Music Catalogue and Distribution Service
Patrick James has spent many an hour standing on a corner playing music to a passing crowd. Although he had an EP behind him, James set out to write a fresh set of songs for Outlier. I enjoyed that experience. California Song is the pick of the litter on Outlier , a cruisy tune loosely about love and friendship. When I wrote about what I felt, it was like getting away from your worries. The album was recorded at the legendary Albert Studios in Sydney. By the time James and his bandmates, who were also his producers, were ready to record he had about 25 songs, including some old ones, to choose from.
A relatively new name in the music game, Patrick James not long ago was busking on the streets of Sydney. With the release of his second EP and national solo tour, he is starting to make waves. Following his sold out solo tour last year and the release of his first EP All About to Change , this new release delivers beautifully crafted instrumentals, stunning guitar riffs and banjo solos, and his husky vocals and heart-melting harmonies are enough to make you swoon. The six-track EP features the previously released singles Message and Wait. Message, which blends poignant love-song lyrics with a somewhat upbeat drum backing, will have you hooked from the very first hearing. The rest of the EP stacks up too. The song Fight with Me features Melbourne-based signer Olympia Olivia Bartley , whose delicate vocals beautifully highlight James' unique tone.
As the American philosopher John Dewey argues in Art as Experience , poems should be thought of not as replicating experiences, but rather as experiences in their own right. I quote at length to demonstrate accumulative effect:. The movement, in the case above, from abstract meditation on death and metaphor to a very particular house and its desperate situation is done with meticulous care; each line sets up an expectation before the next modifies or subverts it outright, making expert use of the split-second it takes to move the eyes down.

Review by Patrick James Errington
This was exactly how I felt when I first heard Patrick James. Busking was an important starting point for his career not only to showcase his music and gain fans but also to raise funds for touring and recording. - Despite the changes James has made to his sound, there are still a few reliable constants: quality vocals and strong songwriting.
