Dallas, Texas bred producer, writer and soul artist Bobby Patterson has had a long and exhilarating career. From playing in his band the Royal Rockers in his early teens, to recording for Abnak Records in 1962, to scoring regional hits with Jetstar Records, to producing for Fontella Bass and Little Johnny Taylor, and penning songs recorded by the likes of Albert King and the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Patterson has firmly established himself in many facets of the music industry. In his most recent release, I Got More Soul!, these multiple talents come together. This album, recorded in Austin, Texas, holds eight originals including the dynamic opener and the album’s namesake, “I Got More Soul!” Patterson also brings his soulful interpretation to Sly & the Family Stone’s “Poet” (1971) and Detroit rock band The Dirtbombs’ “Your Love Belongs Under a Rock” (2001). With this album, Patterson reminds listeners about the skills that have him such a staple in the industry.
