The High Spirits
The High Spirits are currently writing and arranging songs for their first studio album. The Portland, Maine based duo is gaining momentum with their sound that is equal parts Country and Soul. They combine the textured sound of electric and acoustic guitars with the soulful vocals of Anna Patterson.Lyrically, Dave Patterson writes songs for The High Spirits that explore ideas of identity, human connections, joy, and the elusive nature of all three.

Peddle Steal first got together while writing and recording the album How We Hunger. The album was written in the winter of 2012 and recorded in a 17th century barn in West Newfield, Maine in the spring of 2012. How We Hunger recounts the story of forbidden love in a dying mill town in Maine. The members of Peddle Steal are James Welsch, Anna Patterson, Jess Greer, Charlie Sichterman, and Dave Patterson. This band plays vinyl-era country music.
Praise for How We Hunger:
It’s not the harmonies or phrasing that indicate the inspiration behind this work, it’s the album as a whole that shows Dave let his inspiration barrel down a track with the power of a freight train.
