"Alternative Rock is not a musical genre, it’s a lifestyle. That why it’s musically so vast and anchored in the present." So it’s not from radio or in books that Patrick found his music but through his passion for riding motorcycles, snowboarding, backpacking, punk rock, tattoos and underground cultures...these songs are the soundtrack to his day to day life. It’s the same passion that brought him from HMV to music programmer at Musiqueplus, promo rep for A&M and Universal and back again to Musiqueplus in 2005 this time as the Music director. "When I found myself in Musiqueplus music meeting or Videofact board committee, I used my gut and not my head to decide if I loved a song or not. For me a good song is one that makes you feel like hitting the road, jumping on a board or cracking a six pack with friends..." Now a programmer at Galaxie, Patrick wants to face the music the only way he knows... "Programming music is a treat, not a job. And it’s particularly fun right now, because the alternative music scene in Canada has never been this strong..."
Riding country roads on my motorcycle
Walking cities of Eastern Europe
Drinking with old friends and drinking with new friends
Alternative music to keep me young
Country music for the way of life
Rock music for the open road
Pop music because girls like it
