Songs for grown up girls!

Patti's 3rd release continues to showcase her growth as a writer and musician. These are songs written by someone whose been around the block a time or two experiencing the highs and lows. Her bluesy soulful voice is expertly produced. The layered harmonies on Looking for Elvis is nothing short of brilliant. Turn down the lights, open a bottle of wine and enjoy some really fine music.

grows on you

Like all her albums, the more you listen the more you are drawn in. Although you can hear the Springsteen influence, especially in "looking for elvis," she deserves to be assessed on her own terms. Think the likes of Bonnie Raitt, Rickie Lee Jones and Shawn Colvin--we need more women songwriters with her honesty and spunk. She's pushed herself here out of the sound of 23rd St Lullaby, adding a soul-sister choir of backing vocals and downplaying her keyboard, and I think she's pushed her own voice, too--it's rougher than in 23rd St Lullaby, but with a beautiful fragility to it. As always, she's some of the best company there is.

A great album with soul

I can completely relate to the messages and life in this album. I see my 20 year marriage in Play it as it Lays, and I will play Looking for Elvis on my next girls night out. Patti's sound is sweet and salty like a great snack that hits the spot. Town Called Heartbreak rocks - you go Jersey Girl! Loved the 23rd St. Lullaby concerts and looking forward to a tour of these cool songs.
