The youngest of three brothers and the son of two musicians, Graham Patzner didn't have much choice. Starting on piano at age five and then moving on to violin, trumpet and guitar, the Whiskerman singer and front-man has cultivated a unique sound that is hard to pinpoint. His voice ranges from smoky to soaring, while his songs span a wide array of moods and genres, yet always remain soulful. Behind him is a tight band that includes Will Lawrence on bass, Nick Cobbett on drums, and Charles Lloyd sharing guitar duties. Collectively they form Whiskerman, and they are quickly becoming a force in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Their self-titled debut album was recorded in Oakland and released in September 2011. It can be purchased on iTunes and other online retailers.
Their latest EP was recorded in LA with producer Tony Berg and is due out this fall.
