Patrick Watson

1979 -

Origin: Quebec, Canada

Main instrument: Piano

Genres: Folk/Country, Pop, Rock

Montrealer Patrick Watson's early musical history can be traced all the way back to the age of seven when he sang in the choir. When he hit his teens, he switched to playing keyboards in the ska group, Gangster Politics. With the release of the album, Just Another Ordinary Day, in 2003, a broader audience was introduced to this gifted composer's talent. Backed up by solid musicians, including Simon Angell from his Gangster Politics days, Patrick Watson reveals an intimate universe that is slightly somber and melancholy, swathed in music that could be described as orchestral indie-pop. Wooden Arms came in 2009, followed by Adventures In Your Own Backyard three years later.
