INTROVERTIGO is the follow up to 2015’s critically acclaimed Dear Silence Thieves which spawned to rock radio hits Backbite and Fetch Your Spade.
In 2015, Patlansky toured 10 countries with Joe Satriani, and was nominated by Classic Rock as one of their hotly tipped new artists of 2015. Dear Silence Thieves received many accolades and praise from the British press, including Most Promising Male Blues Artist by Blues & Soul magazine, and was nominated Best International Solo Artist at Planet Rock Radio’s ‘Rocks’ Awards. Says Patlansky about the new album, “INTROVERTIGO draws from all my influences from Audioslave, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jim Hendrix, Rival Sons and beyond. We’ve continued the same mix of rock, funk and blues that we mastered on last year’s Dear Silence Thieves album.”
“I think this is possibly my most accomplished album to date,” says Patlansky. “The new album draws from all my influences from Audioslave, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jim Hendrix, Rival Sons and beyond. We’ve continued the same mix of rock, funk and blues that we mastered on last year’s Dear Silence Thieves album. Theo Crous, who produced Silence Thieves, has produced Introvertigo, and I think he’s done a stellar job.
Introvertigo was written over the course of two years. Patlansky immediately started writing this follow-up after 2014’s critically acclaimed Dear Silence Thieves (voted Best Blues Rock Album in 2014 by Blues Rock Review, USA). Similar to Dear Silence Thieves, is produced by Theo Crous and was recorded at Bellville Studios, Cape Town.
“Introvertigo describes a feeling I very often experience being an introvert,” says Patlansky. “The concept behind the album is very much about my own insecurities. It’s about being an introvert in the music industry, my experiences in the industry and life in general. Even though the songs on the album have different topics and are not directly about being an introvert. It comes from an introvert’s point of view.”
Patlansky used his personal life experiences as inspiration for the album to ultimately marry good songs with guitar playing. Working with Theo Crous for the second time, he describes the process as more streamlined this time around, which allowed space for a more creative environment.
Says Dan; “Fans can expect a unique brand of Blues rock guitar playing, whilst striving for strong songwriting. I’m very excited and proud of this album, and honestly feel this is my best release to date.”]]>
