Bloom, Patrick : Moses
"There is an honesty and generosity in the way Patrick Bloom presents his carefully crafted studies of the human experience. His subjects are not extraordinary. In fact, it is their ordinariness that makes them special. They are stories about you and I. Bloom's jangly folk-pop infuses every track with a gently beating heart creating a beautiful collection." -Jeff Weiss, Miles Of Music "Deeply evocative tales both universal and personal interact and sit side by side, in deeply affecting songs that explore the inner and outer meaning of the human heart." -John Hammel, HomegrownRadioNJ.com 'It's an absolute STUNNER.' -Jim Musser, Iowa City Press-Citizen "...Bloom captures the essence of everyday life with a poignancy that evades the pitfall of becoming maudlin." -Don Grant, Freight Train Boogie 'This is the kind of masterful songwriting that you rarely hear these days. You'll hear it in an artists like Gillian Welch, David Rawlings, and Steve Earle, and maybe a handful of other contemporary songwriters, but, for the most part, folks with this kind of talent are few and far between.' -Teddy Goldstein, Broadtexter 'As good as Bloom's music is, his lyrics are what make him stand out. Bloom writes about real people and places. He seems to have the knack for taking the very ordinary in life and dissecting it to show the true unappreciated beauty of everyday life.' -Ryan Parker, Playback STL.
