Be Good or Be Gone
Patric has performed a unique brand of acoustic driven indie folk music around the east coast for the last 10 years. He emerged out of the college folk scene in Morgantown, W.V. in the early 90's where he developed a style of humorous, nontraditional writing with a wry, slightly sad delivery. He reflects his observations of America as seen from a razor sharp, non-native (Swedish) point of view. Patric relocated to New York in the mid 90's and has been a frequent performer around the Greenwich Village folk clubs ever since. The songs on his third release 'Be Good or Be Gone' fall somewhere between heartbreak and humor, delivered with an oddball Scandinavian honesty. The Daily Athenaeum in Morgantown, WV gave it 8 out of 10 and had this to say, Be Good or Be Gone captures a great mixture of mellow and poppy songs that blend together in a great musical painting. The album is a folk rock record that sounds eerily like a combination of Bob Dylan and Tom Petty. Patric Westoo's lyrics take the listener on a journey through relationships, hardships and scenes of American culture.'
