is at home in many genres. He lives his love of music in blues, rock,
smooth jazz, contemporary jazz and more. You never know in advance
what direction his next album goes. A Journey Home (2017) is
Patrick Yandall's return to his roots.
Patrick has written and produced all songs of the new project. The
uplifting A Journey Home has the flavor of a sunny summer
day. A hip melody with various instruments involved from guitar, horns
to vintage organ. You never get a Second Chance for a first
impression, but a musician always get the chance by writing new music.
This song offers soul music with a retro savor.
Route 56, also known as Kuhio Highway, is the main highway on the
north and east shore of Kauai island. Cruising Kuhio Hwy is
the aptly hymn for your next drive on this beautiful island.
Intimate Request holds your attention for longer with alluring
sounds. My Ride has a subtle blues infusion with the ideal
connection of horns and guitar.
On Spirit Moves Patrick eloquently plays the guitar while the
vocal sample gives the song the right kick. With his golden sounding
steel in his hand Patrick performs the funky Are You Ready
with the ground breaking rhythm of a heavy laborer and a powerful horn
Passion presents Yandall's guitar in its most
characteristic form. His fluid guitar strokes shine in all their
majesty. On Sunday Offering Patrick shares the melody on
organ and guitar painting a rural idyll of red poppies and yellow
buttercups with wild rosemary, fennel, juniper and mimosa.
On Ranai “Romantic Love” Patrick embarks on a musical journey
with an Asian flair and an overwhelming feeling of exoticism. One
Way In serves a satisfyingly diverse musical palette with strong
rock influences. Final piece is a genuine blues called Blue Jay
Blues. Patrick masters a lot of instruments from organ, bass,
horns to his beloved guitar. Honestly said, the goal of perfection
is a spur to maximum performance.
With A Journey Home Patrick Yandall rises to new heights.
Collaborating with other musicians would make his music even more
