Pat McGee is a singer-songwriter who has just made his dream record merging all of his strongest musical influences and tracking with true legends of the studio.
McGee’s self-titled upcoming record, available at his Tin Angel show, is his 10th effort and it’s a big one. Recorded in Los Angeles in 2014, with a legendary band: Russ Kunkel, Leland Sklar, Waddy Wachtel, Danny Kortchmar, Jeff Pevar and guests: Little Feat’s Paul Barrere, Blues Traveler’s John Popper, Train’s Pat Monahan, Punchbrother’s Gabe Witcher & more!
McGee wrote all the music himself inspired by the classic albums of the 1970’s that he grew up listening to. To land this incredible band, dubbed The Section, for these sessions was truly amazing and you can hear the passion and creativity on each track. These are the same players who helped create the signature sounds of Jackson Browne, James Taylor and so many more iconic artists.
Pat McGee Band was founded in 1995 and released and eight albums (2 on Warner Brothers) and a live DVD. PMB toured relentlessly for ten years all over the United States, in one stretch doing 98 shows in 103 days. They were asked to perform for President Clinton, sold out venues all over the US, shared the stage with The Who, Allman Brothers, Fleetwood Mac, James Taylor, Counting Crows Rat Dog, Levon Helm & more. The band was crushed with the untimely death in 2006 of founding drummer Chris Williams. He was the backbone of the band and an integral part of the signature sound of the group, both live and in the studio. McGee has assembled various star-studded ensembles over the years and continues to have a focus on the song supported with strong harmonies, percussive acoustic guitars, mandolins as well as a tight rhythm section and tasteful electric guitars.
Pat has performed for USO in Greenland and more recently in The Middle East and Africa with Navy Entertainment. This allowed McGee and his band the opportunity to land on The USS Eisenhower to play for 5000 brave men and women serving on the Arabian Sea--an experience that was a highlight of his career.
McGee has strong ties to Philadelphia, having toured here for the last 20 years and has family close by. Pat McGee Band was a favorite of local universities and the band sold out TLA and Electric Factory on many occasion throughout the ‘90’s and early 2000’s. Pat is close with PA based artist Matt Duke, a regular at his Down The Hatch music festival in the Outer Banks of NC each spring.
Joining McGee for his return to Tin Angel, will be a stellar group of musicians to create the ultimate singer-songwriter/rock show.
