Duniven (CD Giveaway Party)
“LA rock n roll troubadour Patrick Duniven and his band (who collectively are known as Duniven) plays the kind of rich, Americana style music that is reminiscent of many great American rock heroes. Listening to a track like ‘Passage to Nowhere’ it’s easy to hear traces of Dylan, Petty and Springsteen. Duniven skillfully avoids repetitive territory though, instead continuing the tradition with his own take on the genre” – Mp3.com
“There are few artists who can appear out of nowhere and have a lasting presence that resonates long after they emerge. Since first catching wind of Dunivens sound less than a year ago, it can be guaranteed he’s one of those artists who’s going to make that imprint possible. He brings a captivating and poetic performance to the stage.
Having spent the rest of 2011 supporting his first LP ‘I Need to Try for Her’ with local shows, an East Coast tour and a landmark performance at ASCAP’s CMJ showcase, it’s a wonder he’s already found time to get back in the studio and hit us hard with his next EP ‘These Dreams’ – released on April 30th (the final night of his April, Mon night residency at The Satellite) But Duniven has raised the bar for all new and driven musicians to contend for the spotlight yet again” – Mary Broadbent (The Deli Magazine)
Patrick Joseph is a singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist hailing from the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Joseph got his start in music performing in and out of various bands in the Pittsburgh area and collaborating with different songwriters before finally finding his own path as a solo artist at the age of twenty-one, playing acoustic gigs in and around the Pittsburgh region while writing and recording demos of his original material.
Currently, Joseph now has his sights set on tracking his second full-length studio album entitled Moon King, release date TBA.
He is also working on a brand-new EP release of select cover songs entitled Stranger's Shoes with Lucas Martinez, release date TBA. Each track from Stranger's Shoes will have its very own YouTube video posted, including already-popular covers he's performed such as Radiohead's "Idioteque" and "Feeling Good."
On November 22nd, 2011, Joseph released an EP entitled Relics, an acoustic interpretation of select tracks from Antiques. The EP embodies the live acoustic sound he cultivated while performing at venues around Los Angeles in 2011.
Antiques and Relics are available on iTunes and Amazon, as well as virtually every digital distribution outlet on the web and of course, hard copies are available here at patrickjoseph.com.
At the start of 2010 Joe Fraley was recovering from a nervous breakdown. He had been playing with the band Klum for 8 years which produced two albums, Victory All My Life and We Carelessly Turned Amazingly Into Nothing. As a way to test new material, Joe started playing acoustic shows around Los Angeles. He brought the songs to fellow member and lead singer of Klum, Brock Flores. They both talked with Vin O, an old friend of Joe's who has played Bass and Guitar in many different bands playing all over Los Angeles, including a short stint with Klum. The three had a few jam sessions and then they brought in Aaron Vishria on drums who had played with Klum at a different time then Vin O. The four played for a few weeks together and started structuring songs. Then one day, Joe brought in his then girlfriend's sister Melissa Bell. Her angelic voice brought a nice contrast to the brash vocals of Fraley.
The band played their first show at the Old Towne Pub in Pasadena to an enthusiastic crowd, more shows followed at Molly Malones, Bordello, Troubadour, Bootleg Theater, The Satellite (Spaceland) and more.
During this time the band started recording their Debut Album. The album was recorded over a two year span and a very trialing time. Joe and Vin O had suggested that calling the band "King Devil" was a bad idea cause something was out to get them. The majority of the album was recorded at Joe's house. Additional parts were recorded at Brock Flores' house and drums at Ben Eggehorn's Studio. It was mixed and mastered by Ben Eggehorn and Joe Fraley at Ben's Studio.
After recording the album, Brock Flores is now concentrating on his project Badger the Badger along with Vin O and Joe Fraley.
Other wonderful musicians that contributed to making the album are Kenny Wood(Klum), Alina Cutrono(Body Parts), Marié Ishikawa (TMI), Allie Bach (The Bachs), Brittnay Pandzic.
