AK patterson

AK Patterson has been dubbed ‘a woman possessed’, disappearing to a place of disconcerting enchantment when she sings. Her unique vocal style evolved from a range of voices she found expressive as a child; spending each extra hour after school seizing every opportunity to mimic her obsessions – Ella Fitzgerald, Bjork, Jeff Buckley, Judy Garland, Portuguese Fado musicians; learning the subtleties and characteristics in each voice. The versatility she developed through this provides a powerful bedrock for each performance. She moves with easy command from sensitive pathos to thrilling attack and moments of melismatic Eastern promise.
