““Seattle has done it again. The city by the Sound has produced a musical artist who connects directly to the hearts of his listeners with his words and his music. P.A.T. stands for Profound Absolute Truth and that is what this artist delivers. He sings about the pain of his mistakes, the uncertainty that comes with change and the power of discovering how to live in the light. Pat’s music and lyrics transport listeners to an understanding that can change lives. With his soft-sell singing and freestyle raps, Pat invites you to wake up to your spiritual humanity even as his eclectic and spellbinding blend of reggae, rock and hip-hop rhythms sinks into your bones. This music energizes your body and feeds your soul. Don’t miss out on the feast.” Leslie vanWinkle—Freelance writer, musician and filmmaker”

“This act bills itself as a funk, reggae and hip-hop outfit. In reality, that's just the starting point. P.A.T. incorporates so many styles of music it's mind shattering. This group create a musical form so unique, they should have a genre of their own. Everything revolves around Patrick Riefflin's guitar work. A shamanistic virtuoso. Scratching maestro, Dj Butters adds just the right effects for a hip-hop vibe, while Ford and Wollen syncopate rhythms to create a funky style of reggae. Patrick hits the vocal lines, seamlessly switching between rapping and singing. Its not rap-rock or even close to it. Is is a new, strange brew that even (Avatar's) James Cameron could not imagine. The show was magical and the audience felt it, eating up every word, gesture and note. It was a show where the stars aligned and everything clicked. These artists are exceptional in every respect; and would appeal to music lovers of any genre.”
