"It's true, I'm a long way from home," Patrick Coman says with a faint twang that remains the most enduring clue to his beginnings south of the Mason-Dixon line. A fixture of Boston's vibrant roots music scene as a performer, organizer of the New England Americana Festival and the For the Sake of the Song series, and as the host of Local Folk on Boston's Americana radio station WUMB, Coman has made much of his five years in the Northeast, but it doesn't quite yet feel like home.

An Okie from just north of Muskogee, Patrick grew up under the spell of his hometown's famed Tulsa Sound. Equal parts red dirt, blues, rock, soul, and country this unique regional sound was the perfect template for a budding songwriter with a voracious and wide-ranging appetite for roots music.

Patrick's latest effort Reds & Blues was written in homage to the albums that lie at the heart of this foundation. Each song was written as a mythical "missing track" to an album that has contributed to the unique style he calls "playing the reds and blues". These albums include everything from touchstones by Bob Dylan, The Band, and the Rolling Stones to work from Tulsa Sound pioneers Leon Russell, JJ Cale, and lesser known gems from Whiskeytown, Big Star, and rockabilly legend Jerry Lee Lewis.
