A FEW WORDS
Cheersquad Records & Tapes are thrilled to announce the release of Patrick Wilson’s new album ‘It’ll Be Alright’ on 29 September 2023.
Available on limited edition mustard coloured 12” vinyl (100 only), black 12” vinyl, CD or digitally.
When he’s not driving the backbeat or serving six string duties for some of Melbourne’s best alt-country ensembles, drummer, multi-instrumentalist and former butcher Patrick Wilson is busy crafting his own brand of authentic electrified country rock ‘n’ roll.
On his debut long-playing release, the deep feeling writer steps into the spotlight with a collection of tunes that showcase his sweet tenor and keen songcraft. Wilson’s advanced ear for melody, his understanding of the heritage of the country inspired form and his access to players that bring an authentic and deft swagger to the material are the foundations to this impressive and assured debut release.
‘It’ll Be Alright’ is a “self-reflective, and honest exploration into the grieving process associated with the demise of relationships and the coping mechanisms within that.” He mentions that when considering the songs as a whole collection on a theme, there are multiple references to “drug use, drinking, loss and self-reflection on interactions with past lovers,” which suggests a referencing of past shortcomings to perhaps find a better way forward.
