Not Too Late
Patti-Anne was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. From an early age she demonstrated a talent for art and music. She was encouraged to participate in playing music and singing at family reunions and celebrations. She studied violin for several years and during that time, her parents bought her a guitar that soon became her instrument of choice. Growing up with two older brothers, she was exposed to the music of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Neil Young, Zeppelin and assorted others at home and church. After moving stateside, Patti-Anne began to play and sing in various bands. She also started writing songs that combined her early pop, folk rock and church music influences that were such an important part of her childhood. The results, much to her own surprise, had stronger country music influences than she had expected. As she wrote songs, she sharpened her singing and performing skills with a local Seattle cover band, while making a living as an art teacher. What has emerged is a polished singer songwriter and performer that compels her audiences and listeners for more. Last year, at the urging of friends, fans and family, she played for Seattle producer Jim Ragland, who immediately insisted that her songs be recorded. 'Not Too Late' is the CD that resulted from that collaboration.
