Steps Toward Home
"(His) songs are little revelations. You can't help but get sucked into these worlds created by front man and chief songwriter Lucas Ohio Pattie, whose dusty voice seems perfect for delivering these tales." Glen Starkey, New Times, San Luis Obispo "You got feeling -- that's for sure . . . those are your tunes? Wow." Charlie Musselwhite, Legendary Blues Harp Musician, who has regularly played with Ben Harper and other legendary blues musicians including John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, and Howlin' Wolf, talking with Lucas Ohio about songs from his latest album "If your brew tastes like bar boogie, roots rock, and good old fashioned country, The Shamblers deliver. As James Joyce once said, " Everything's better with beer," and frontman Lucas Ohio Pattie not only brews his own, but adds a nice shot of whiskey vocals at just the right times." Chris O' Connor, Frontman/Singer/Songwriter, Primitive Radio Gods "Fueled with passion, Lucas Ohio Pattie's songs don't stay in once place but wander through moods wrapped around ideas, changing off grooves and heading to new places all the time. It's rock that sways you, pounds you, pulls you back in, and heals. The music makes you want to move and before you know it, you do." David Zink, Principal, Local Records, Papa's Moon Records, Recording Artist, and Producer of The Listening Room Series, Southern California. "Lucas Ohio Pattie may be the next smart young blues-folk-rocker to be accepted into the pantheon of San Francisco Bay Area illuminati . . . a bright guy with a vision for something fresh and different . . . a natural pairing with the equally versatile Jackie Greene (for whom he recently opened) . . ."
