Reviews and Info
Over 40 years after performing his very first show at age eight for a crowd of 3,000 people in his hometown of Kansas City, Kansas - singer, songwriter and guitarist Glenn Patrik brings a lifetime of struggle and soul, joy and pain and hard-driving blues playing to his long awaited second CD, Nuthin' But A Thang!
Review By John Vermilyea (Blues Underground Network)
I often wonder what's going to become of the very young Blues Protégé's we see today, but after listening to Glenn Patrik's, (a performer whose first stage presence was a the ripe old age of eight), newest CD "Nuthin' But A Thang!", I think they will do alright. Music, especially Blues Music, unlike the Movie Industry, tends to take the up and comers under their wings and in turn, prepares them for a successful transition to adulthood and the long Blues Road ahead.
Glenn Patrik is a fine example of what can become of a young artist when mentored properly and his CD "Nuthin' But A Thang!" shows us all the limitless possibilities one can achieve.
From the opening Track "Don't Call Me Daddy", to the closing Track "Other Side of Town", Glenn offers us his no nonsense approach to the Blues, which totally reflects and pay tribute to those that have guided his progress.
Front Jump Style Blues, to lingering Soulful Blues, and beyond, Glenn mixes it up very nicely and offers us a CD sure to please all.
"Nuthin' But A Thang!" is a very fine addition to Glenn's Musical Resume.

About Glenn Patrik
“In the neighborhood I grew up in,” he tells, “everyone played
soul and blues, and I was exposed, starting at about age six to live shows
and recordings by Freddy King, Albert Collins as well as Archie Bell &
The Drells and Count Basie. I can feel Mozart right along with Nat Cole,
Django Rheinhardt along with some George Clinton. Then, throw in some
Hound Dog Taylor, Aaron Neville, The Carter Family with Too Live Crew and
Hendrix. Add the influence of K.C. blues guitar legend Leon Estelle and
you get a feel of where I come from.”
