ABOUT STAN PATTERSON
Stan “The Man” Patterson. His music is heartfelt, soulful, passionate, powerful and spiritual. It is so easy to listen to; it is melodic, intense, sensual and stimulating. His music touches so many different emotions, from the unconditional joy of love to the utter depth of pain, from being scared to the sheer bliss of comfort and from helpless weakness to the peace of inner strength and confidence. Such a versatile talent Stan “The Man” is not only an extraordinarily gifted vocalist, he either wrote or co-wrote all of the original songs you hear. In addition to that, he also arranged, produced and engineered all songs with the help of co-producers David Day & Bobby Wilkerson. Stan likes to say that this is the music of my heart, soul and mind. We know you will enjoy and we hope you will share the music of Stan Patterson…
Born Stanley W. Patterson in Silver City, Mississippi. Mr. Patterson was moved to Los Angeles when he was only thirty days old and has been a Southern California resident ever since.
Born to and raised in a musical family, Mr. Patterson did very little singing as a youngster, his primary interest were in sports and drama. He attended Central University of Iowa majoring in History with a minor in Theater and Communication.
While working as a M.C., Host and DJ, Stan was introduced to singing, and the rest, as they say, is history. Blessed with an incredible range and indescribable power,
Mr. Patterson also possesses one of the most unique voices one will ever hear.
Proof of Mr. Patterson talent is reflected in the fact he rarely had to seek gigs. The popularity he enjoys as an entertainer comes from word of mouth. People hear him, employ him and refer him to others. A very talented songwriter as well as a performer, he has made his living exclusively as an entertainer since 1995. He and his band Fahrenheit have worked all over the U.S.A, serving notice that a truly dynamic artist is on the scene.
Mr. Patterson is not a man of modest goals. He has set his sights on becoming a multi-million record selling artist and songwriter. Given his talent, I would not bet against him.
