Born in Doncaster, England, Patrick's upbringing was nomadic to say the least. The son of a journalist and a piano teacher the family would live in eight different towns, five cities and three countries before he'd reach the age of seven. They settled for a short time on the outskirts of Manchester where Patrick began playing guitar and writing songs, by the time he was eleven an obsession with music was deep rooted. At eighteen a near fatal accident left him hospitalized for over 4 months and unable to walk for almost a year, through discomfort he was still able to work on his music. Patrick spent the 1990's in various bands on the Manchester circuit, culminating with some success playing support slots at some of the UK's most renowned venues. The groups recording however was limited to demoing for various major labels and Briscoe decided to return to being a solo musician. He sites his influences as John Coltrane, Mozart, Mark Hollis, Beethoven, Robert Johnson and Miles Davis.
âColours Will Flyâ is Patrick Briscoe's latest offering. It is a collection of fourteen songs in which the listener is allowed into an intensely intimate and honest room with inspiringly evocative views through large windows. The mood undulates throughout, with the simplistic beauty of the Drakesque âBrighter Daysâ to the driving virtuoso instrumental of âBehind the Lightâ, a must have for all lovers of the acoustic guitar. Within âPortrait of Englandâ Briscoe opens up his scrap book, revealing a Larkin like reverie which resolves in the ghostly charms of a violin in an empty room. Elements of the classic pop song appear in âJust Driftingâ and the devout guitar workout of âScars and Mountainsâ with the album culminating at the 'heads off in the distance' hypnosis of âRaising Stonesâ. The music is accompanied by beautiful artwork and design, proving the point that download culture will sometimes miss out on something great.
