Patrick Bates Releases New EP, “Feathers and Pearls”

patrickbatesSinger/songwriter Patrick Bates has just released his latest body of work, the four-song EP “Feathers and Pearls.”

The EP was recorded at Montrose Studios by Adrian Olsen in early 2014 and features guest musicians Alexandra Spalding (Avers, Hypercolor), Reggie Pace (NO BS, Bon Iver), Marshall Costan (The Awesome Few), Adrian Olsen (Avers, Hypercolor) and Marcus Tenney (NO BS).

“Feathers and Pearls” is about Bates’ own experience falling for a German beauty in Berlin while on tour. The story, which unfolds in four parts, begins with the wistful, reverb heavy “German Muse” as twists its way through emotions leading up to heartbreak in “In the End.”
