Rhymes with Music
'Drive Drive Drive' was featured on the premier episode of ABC's 'Men in Trees' and on CBS in 'Swingtown.' Pat's song 'Calling Out From My Heart' will be in the upcoming Tim Robbins movie, The Lucky Ones. What began as a demo project turned out to have such a positive vibe, that it morphed into the first official solo release for Central Pennsylvania native, Pat Cusick -- "Rhymes With Music." For quite some time Pat Cusick has been performing cover songs to make a buck (in dives, diners and discos), while at the same time penning and honing his own material. After years of being a human jukebox, and keeping his own works to himself, he finally faced the fact that the time had come to be true to his self. He knew exactly what he wanted to do and write what he wanted to write -- no formulas, no rules, no follow-the-crowd. On "Rhymes With Music" you will hear an accessibly retro 70's based sound with out-of-the-ordinary song topics ranging from old school radio, to driving, to latchkey kids, to Amelia Earhart, and more. While all the songs stand on their own individual literal meaning, further listening will generate a range of deeper, more hidden, emotions. Even in his calmest moments, there is something happening underneath it all. In other words, these songs work on more than one level proving that there is far more than mere rhymes with music...
