Michigan bred, San Diego-based guitarist Patrick Yandall’s eclectic and buoyant grooves, infectious melodies and crisp, fluid electric lines have been a mainstay in Smooth Jazz for over 20 years. While keeping the forward momentum going, the Billboard and SmoothJazz.com charting artist's new album A JOURNEY HOME finds him taking a spirited, high energy look back at his music-filled upbringing in Bay City, Michigan... the state responsible for launching many classic rock bands and bringing the world the Motown sound. True to these roots, Yandall’s 12 dynamic, originals cover a lot of stylistic territory, from R&B/funk and contemporary soul to rock, with some tasty nods to gospel and hard driving blues along the way. On many tracks, Yandall masterfully weaves feisty horn textures around his powerful lead lines. Join the pilgrimage on A JOURNEY HOME!
