Patrick Ames – “Queen Kae”


Bay Area singer/songwriter Patrick Ames showcases his eclectic stylistic range on new EP All I Do Is Bleed, with its four tracks spanning a variety of styles. Among them is Latin folk and pop, inspired by Ames’ trip to Buenos Aires during the EP’s creative process. The beautiful acoustic accompaniment during “Queen Kae” — a “classical crossover” that Ames wrote for his mother, who was a choral member and vocalist — certainly has echoes of a Latin influence, adding ample power to the song’s emotional beauty. Ames, who has been writing songs since 1968 — as a 14-year-old — has released some of his finest songs to date with this EP.
