Patrick Watson

Montreal-based songwriter's immersed in music

Patrick has been immersed in music from an early age, and started collaborating with Simon Angell, the band’s guitarist, in his teens. While studying music, Patrick met bassist Mishka Stein and drummer Robbie Kuster, and the band “happened by accident”, starting off as more of a multimedia project. Despite the eponymous name of the group, “it’s definitely a band experience, not a singer-songwriter one. There’s a strong band chemistry but we all come together from different musical backgrounds, from jazz, rock and classical schools of music. It’s mainly a storytelling band – we use every different type of style to our disposal in order to tell stories.”
