A collection of new songs in Patty Larkin's 13th album, Still Green, chronicles Patty's search for relief, respite and solace during a time when she lost both of her parents, and witnessed a sister suffer a serious health issue. The album begins with "The Best of Intentions," a song Larkin started before all of these life-altering events, and completed after them. The song is a bellwether for the record, that raises questions of belief and redemption, and leaves them unanswered for the listener. "It's not a quick answer for me," Larkin says, "...what I want to leave the listener with is a sense of hope."
Patty grew up in a musical and artistic family with descendants from a long line of Irish American singers and storytellers. She began classical piano at age 7, and taught herself the guitar while still in high school. An English major at the University of Oregon, she sang in coffeehouses in Oregon and San Francisco. She moved to Boston where she devoted herself to music studying jazz guitar at Berklee College of Music and with Boston area jazz guitarists. She is presently an Artist In Residence at Berklee College of Music and has earned eleven Boston Music Awards.
Mary Monroe has been a songwriter since she was a child of 9 years. Her parents made their living teaching and performing music which included their children. As a family,The Monroes performed, produced, arranged, and wrote music. Mary performed with guitar, recorders, and voice. She taught herself to play the harp and has added the harp to her live performances. Mary is currently focused on bringing to life the music that tells the story of her journey of loss, sorrow, despair, hope, truth, love, and authenticity. She wants to open people's hearts to the endless possibilities love has to offer with her music. Click on her photograph above to listen to her song "Just A Feeling".
