Patsy Thompson has been through some tough times over this past decade and she finally got the chance to express that in her latest album, “Fabulous Day.”
Her new album was inspired by new beginnings, to leave bad situations and negative people and start over. The title track is just about that. It's the beginning of a new decade, a new beginning, with a new outlook on life. “Fabulous Day” will take you on a ride in a positive way, the good and bad, the ups and downs, and the lessons learned that inspired Patsy to write this album.
Patsy had to wait a long time, 12 years, to record this new album because of family obligations and when no one else would step in to take care of her mother with dementia, she did. She felt broken and burnt out, with an abusive family holding her down... but things turned around.
And her producer/co-writer and dear friend, Chris Rolin, made her an offer she couldn’t refuse and helped her finish and produce this album which is created a shift and a monumental time in Patsy's life. Its a new beginning and time to move on.
Patsy hopes that her new album will leave you feeling good and that no matter what life throws at you, you can push through, put it behind you, and start over in this brand new decade. Wishing you all a fabulous day.
About Patsy Thompson
What matters is that Canadian born Singer-Songwriter Patsy Thompson made her way to Texas, and back, and now West Coast audiences will only be the better for it. Now they can experience her rich, moving voice, raw-edged rough one moment, smooth and tender the next, always dear and soulful, in songs with catchy turns of phrases and such universal themes as love, loss, dreams, starting over, and partying your socks off.
Her sound is a textured blend of driving beat, growly blues with a bit of Canada's airy accent, with some Texas twang, molded by the influence of musicians she loves: Patsy Cline, Bonnie Raitt, Mellissa Ethridge, Aretha Franklin, Koko Taylor, Bob Seger, and Merle Haggard, and Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson to name a few.
Texans got their first taste of Patsy in 1992 when she played at the famous South-By-Southwest Festival in Austin.
In 1994 Patsy moved to Austin and made it her home for the next 15 years, She recorded at Willie Nelson’s Pedernales studios, and toured to support her recordings, opening for Willie Nelson, Clint Black, Rusty Wier, just to name a few.
But what matters is that she's back full circle and grateful for all the experiences and her gift of writing music, and wants to share it with you. Patsy now has just finished her 6th CD called “Fabulous Day,” produced by Chris Rolin. (Aaron Goodvin). Chris Rolin also lends his extraordinary guitar talent throughout this CD.
Patsy had to wait 12 years to do this project because she has been taking care of her mother with dementia, and she didn’t have the ability or funds to do an album but her producer and dear friend made her an offer she couldn’t refuse. The result is some of her best songwriting to date.
“Fabulous Day” takes you on a ride, full of the passion Patsy gives in her songwriting and her performance.
