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 to amaze.

Patty Larkin will be the Keynoter and Featured Performer at the 8th annual Singer Songwriter of Cape May on Friday, March 27, 2015 at historic Congress Hall, 8PM.
