Patchwork Blue, a member of the modern rock genre, delivers a true patchwork of jazz, funk, Latin, and other styles, with soulful singing and sincere lyrics. Patchwork Blue was formed in August 2001. Three local guys found each other in a Coloradan college town. Each with their own unique performance, education, and musical background, they became quick friends who challenged each other every musical session. Ryan Edwards, Nate Brown, and Tony Deyo have proven that a three piece ensemble can provide an ideal 'patchwork' of sound, genre, and experience. Patchwork Blue is currently gaining mainstream popularity and recognition nationwide. Currently, the band is promoting their album Junction, released May, 2006. A new EP of 'singles' is due out in late 2007. As a testament to their rising popularity, in April, 2005, Patchwork Blue shared the stage with national performing act, Everclear. In addition, Patchwork Blue secured the opening slot at the Grand Opening of Larimer County's Budweiser Events Center, making them the first band to perform at The Ranch. Patchwork Blue has been fortunate enough to travel coast to coast on a six week nationwide tour (Summer, 2006), playing renouned and historic venues including, Wisefools Pub (Chicago), The Q (Iowa City), The Relapse Theatre (Atlanta), and Club Fred (Fresno). As a result of the bands incredibly diverse backgrounds, each member of Patchwork Blue takes a rhythm lead approach to their instruments, giving the group a depth of sound more characteristic of a five-piece band. No two shows are alike and the groups dedicated fans, who come back concert after concert, never know exactly what to expect, other than a captivating ride featuring a maturity of songwriting and musical ability that defies their 20-something energy.
