Patty Larkin has spent two decades combining serious lyricism with musical artistry, from her origins on the Northeast folk scene to her current career as a nationally acclaimed vocalist and multi-instrumentalist. Her words are packed with clever wordplay and are vibrant and intensely visual.
Larkin has been an Artist-in-Residence at Berklee College of Music since the release of Still Green in 2013. She is now a member of the Fine Arts Work Centre’s faculty. “I have been motivated by the poets, authors, and artists I have encountered while teaching, and find myself on a voyage to break down some of the predictable pathways that songs might travel,” Larkin says of Song Poems, which will be released in 2018. The procedure has rekindled my love for the sound of words and encouraged me to write my own songs. Making music out of poems has been a very enjoyable experience. What a lovely thing it is to make a happy noise.” The Boston singer-songwriter describes herself as a “survival” after 25 years in the music industry but confesses that she aspires to be a legend.
Poems by 10 prominent poets, including US Poet Laureates William Carlos Williams, Stanley Kunitz, Kay Ryan, Robert Pinsky, and Billy Collins, are set to music in Bird in a Cage, a new and evocative anthology that pulses with the power of lyricism. Poems are meant to be read aloud, and Patty continues this tradition with Bird, illuminating each poem with her remarkable melodic shadings.
Patty Larkin is noted for her powerful guitar skills and engaging, emotionally charged tunes. She goes over her guitar approach in great detail in this session, displaying her unique tunings, fingerpicking method, rhythms, chord ideas, and even a little slide guitar. She demonstrates how to play Tango, Booth of Glass, Dear Diary, Open Hand, and the groovy new smash Wolf At The Door, among her most popular songs. Still Green, an album written in a dune shack on Cape Cod’s National Seashore, and 25, a retrospective album featuring the contributions of 25 friends, including Grammy Award winners Rosanne Cash, Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin, and Janis Ian, as well as acclaimed singer-songwriters Bruce Cockburn, Mary Chapin Carpenter, and Greg Brown, among others. Patty was the Executive Producer of the trailblazing La Guitara, a collection of female guitarists who are actively challenging gender stereotypes and redefining what it means to be a guitar hero.
