Congratulations To The July Austin Music City CD Voter's Poll Winner, Patty Blee!

It was a long hot month and the competition on the voter’s poll was just as hot but at the end it was Patty Blee that ended up in the very position she deserves, the number one spot. The stunning songstress had a huge turnout and dominated the poll for the entire month.
This review is going to be easy to write because I can tell you now that I’m a die hard fan of Patty Blee, hands down. I’ve always admired vocalists with a lot of range and let me tell you, Blee has a fathomless measure being able to go from a breathy, sensuous whisper to stratospheric levels, gathering octaves like small flowers along the way till she reaches areas normally occupied by angels, beautiful indeed.
In combination with her tremendous vocals, there is a production on her cd that is so good it’s spooky. On every level, from the acoustic rhythm section to the lead guitarist, the musicians truly “get it right”, never dominating or overriding Blee’s vocals and complementing the songs as they are written. And let’s not forget the songs, “From The Inside”, “Can’t Explain It”, If I Knew”, “Long Time Coming”, “Never Gonna Go”, and my personal favorite, “Banks Of Jericho”, all self penned and each one a jewel in and of itself, little personal vignettes of life all told with true feeling, emotion and understanding of each word that is written and sung.
She has opened shows for everyone from Jackson Browne and Martina McBride to Marshall Tucker and Lonestar, Kansas, Blake Shelton, Delbert McClinton and numerous others. And hopefully, in the very near future, some Austin Texas dates.
This is one of my favorite cd’s and one that gets a lot of play in the office and in my car. But you can’t have mine, to get your own or to get more info on Patty Blee, check out www.pattyblee.com or www.myspace.com/pattyblee and then you’ll hear what I’m talking about and see what it was that catapulted her to the number one spot on the poll for July.
