Her words will surely resonate with her listeners, as she distinctively reflects on, and celebrates, how the land she calls home has shaped and influenced her life. She also captivatingly croons that in order for people to appreciate their present life and future, they must also appreciate the past of their community.
The nuanced, lively textures of Patterson’s strumming her acoustic guitar throughout her new tune creates and maintains a powerful and meaningfuly landscape that highlight her musical talents and social beliefs. ‘Somewhere There’s a Song Still Singing’s unique personality immediately evokes a sense of togetherness and unity that refuses to give up hope, especially through such lyrics as your song sustains, your air remains.
‘Somewhere There’s a Song Still Singing’ features a relatable lyrical and instrumental quality that isn’t always apparent in the folk and Americana genres, but deserves to be noticed. Combining her unique female perspective on celebrating people’s connections to their land through her potent songwriting and acoustic guitar playing make Patterson’s latest single essential to the current cultural environment. The singer’s emotionally charged, powerful vocals, combined with the minimalist approach to her guitar playing, perfectly complement each other, and help her deliver a memorable performance.
