Formed in 2011, Patch and The Giant are an alternative folk septet from London. Fusing traditional, rough-edged folk and fabled themes with elements of countless other genres, their songs capture a rare spirit of poignancy and simultaneous sense of energy and cool. The close-knit sound is built on captivating vocals, full of life textures, unique instrumentation and ever-changing lilt. Since hitting the London gig scene with full force in autumn 2011, the diary has filled almost overnight - with recent and upcoming highlights including Camden Barfly, Ronnie Scott’s, Water Rats and The Dublin Castle.
Equipement: Vocal mics, DI & bass amp (do not own – will use whatever venue has to offer).
‘North London based crew come along with quaint instrumentals, fireside melodies and, to be honest, a good old winter warmer. Give me a pint, a pub and Patch & the Giant and I’ll be sitting pretty for hours. Seeing as they’ve only been going full force since August – it’s a jolly good show – they may need a little more spit and polish, but I suppose their rough edges only add to the genuine feel and charm. If Are You Listening is an honest sign of things to come from this young crew of folk musos, I look forward to seeing more of them. (SC)’ greenwedge.org, January 2012
