About Patrick Watson

A singer/songwriter, film composer, and pianist based in Montreal, Canada, Patrick Watson makes explorative chamber pop with his band -- also called Patrick Watson -- often blending spare indie pop, synthesizer experiments, cinematic orchestral songs, and a melancholy tone. The group's second album, 2006's Close to Paradise, won the Polaris Prize. After composing music for several short films, Watson made his feature-length debut with It's Not Me, I Swear! in 2008. Released in 2015, Love Songs for Robots became his band's fourth straight album to reach Canada's Top Ten. ~ Marcy Donelson
