Esmé Patterson is an effing star. I was legitimately nervous when she came through the station to perform. One of Colorado's Paper Birds, Esmé recently released her debut solo LP, All Princes, I produced by Roger Green and full of some of Denver's best players. "Folk and Roll" is a decent way to describe the record but it is much more than that and I seriously cannot stop listening.
All Princes, I is in another league and Esmé's voice! Ahhh this kind of voice doesn't come around often.
Check out the album on American Songwriter and listen to her Local Shakedown performance and interview below. ESME PATTERSON IS ONE OF THE ABSOLUTE BESTS
