Saturday SoundBytes: Patrick Ames Will Find a Way… Somehow

Any readers of this site will remember great tracks from California wine country troubadour Patrick Ames that we’ve gushed about in previous years like “Will I Ever Be Noticed” and “Reawakened”. Ames has been making music for decades and we’ve been on him over here since about 2017. Thankfully, he just keeps putting out great music, so we keep lapping it up.

The latest track sees Patrick teaming up with longtime friend and collaborator Jon Ireson for a fun little Americana flavored joint called “Somehow I’ll Find a Way”. Patrick describes the track as a:

…campy song [that] involves a songwriter writing a song about quitting songwriting while driving home from a gig he just quit. Playful and catchy, you’ll be playing and singing this in the car, playing air drums on the steering wheel rim.

Upbeat and pop-oriented, the song truly is infectious, which is nothing new if you know Patrick’s music. His knacks for writing catchy songs that get stuck in your head for days is somewhat astounding.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
