AK Patterson

AK Patterson’s Alex Patterson is in no shortage of inspiration when it comes to experience – an early fascination with Portuguese Fado singers, living with monks in Japanese mountains and a childhood immersed in Bjork and Jeff Buckley in surburban Cambridge all contribute to the enchanting quality of her band’s music. Dubbed ‘a woman possessed’, Alex’s singing has a startling oftentimes other-worldly presence. Joining her are multi-instrumentalist band mates Alfie Wheedon and Nat Reading, whose combined classical training, versatility and own experiences travelling provide a rich bed of instrumentation to support her. Their debut EP ‘Shadows’ arrived July 18, both produced by Charlie Andrew (Alt-J, Marika Hackman) and co-released via his imprint Square Peg Records.
