"RAGE" is perhaps the best album Patrick has ever put together. You can hear it in the uniqueness of each song and you can hear it in the maturity of his voice. His songs all have something to say, whether serious or silly. With over 50 years in the music business and with all the ups and downs, Patrick continues to follow his heart in pursuit of his dreams. He continues to say "music sets my soul free, to hope, to dream, to just be me".
All instruments and vocals were done by Patrick. Patrick and Barbara are co-producers. Album is published by Patrick and Barbara Sassone (Coyote Productions). All songs are registered with BMI. Cover artwork by Jordyn Sassone.
Patrick Sassone is an international recording artist and actor whose music has been heard in over seventy countries. He has a worldwide fan base and is a writer affiliate with B.M.I. He began his career at the age of five with the accordion and taught himself to play the guitar in his early teens. Patrick's first group was called Patrick and The Shamrocks that consisted of two cousins, a schoolmate, and himself. They recorded a 45 for Orlyn Records called "Yes, That's What I'm Gonna Do" and were chosen as an opening act for Country great Billy Walker. This group disbanded within two years. He had the privilege to meet Leonard and Phil Chess of Chess Records, who had taken an interest in his talent. The direction and guidance they gave him have stayed with him his whole life. At the time, Patrick was the guitar player and songwriter for a group called “Society’s Children”. The following year they had a regional hit with their record “Mister Genie Man” which is still available today. A couple of years later, Patrick was introduced to Curtis Mayfield at Mayfield’s personal recording studio outside of Chicago. The insight Curtis gave him, as well as the kindness and professionalism he showed, made a life long impression.
Patrick continued to write and perform as a solo artist in the Rock, Blues, and Country genres which eventually led him back to his Chicago roots. To quote this artist, “music sets my soul free, to hope, to dream, to just be me“!
