Album Notes
Patty has a voice that is smoky, urgent and real, and a
songwriting sensibility that is truly unique. She is a fascinating artist with tremendous potential. I expect her to be around for a long time.

A New Talent Worthy Of Your Attention
If Rosanne Cash tells me this is someone to pay attention to, I tend to pay attention.

I've listened through this CD twice now and have found that some songs have stayed with me long after putting the disc back in its case. "Heavyset Man" could become an anthem for those of us who long to be crushed by the ones we love -- trust me, you'll understand when you listen to the song. "Barcelona" has that winsome, lonely quality you expect to hear in folk these days, but without the sugary grieving that often makes it unbearable -- but not here. We'll leave the grieving for the heart-aching "Sean Lugano". "Misspent Youth" closes with a real toe-tapper of a chorus.

Patty Ocfemia's (or "PattyO" as she sometimes labels herself in the credits) voice has a smoky, dissonant quality that reminds me of young Bob Dylan that works perfectly with the delicate arrangements as best exemplified in "Slap Myself". Her song-writing skills are just top-notch; I definitely lost myself in the poetry of her lyrics.

If I have any complaints, I would have liked to have heard Ocfemia put more range into her vocals, especially for some of the songs like "Heavyset Man" and "Misspent Youth" where the choruses tend to build. Though neither song has a particular Country twang to it, I kept finding myself wondering how Dolly Parton would have sang these. Then again, I relish the idea that not every vocalist needs to succumb to an ear piercing, American Idolized crescendo.

An impressive debut. I look forward to what comes next.
