pat’s first album for pan y rosas represents a new approach in her sound. a fresh beginning at composing and arranging. a blend of electronic glitch and her very human voice. the sound is: enchant. captivate. electronic tools. patterns built on demand with vocal style. rich color as measured. play it solo.
