Dreams in the Light - 2021

Patrick McNeese

Recorded at Duane Lundy's studios in the late summer and fall of 2021. Patrick was quite ill by then, but powered through it exquisitely with clear determination to ensure that these imaginative songs were documented. We are in awe of the power and range of his voice, and enchanted by provocative lyrics with a muscality all their own.

We lost Patrick on the evening of December 29, 2021. He was 68. Patrick had devoted his life to art and we were fortunate enough to have been invited to perform and record many of his songs, found in the albums above. He was kind, patient and generous, allowing us to find our roles in music that often had the feel of a dream. "Transcendent" has been repeated by many who experienced a live performance of this body of work. Patrick had a sense of humor that was always on alert for opportunities and many around Lexington know first hand of his talent for spirited, respectful, intelligent conversation. Just like his music. And his art. On behalf of Tripp Bratton, Jesse Pena, F. Miles Hanchett, Maggie Lander, Duane Lundy, John Ingram and Michael Cruse we will never, ever forget. Our heartfelt condolences to his loving wife Claudia and to his family.
