I feel like it is safe to say that we all have our so-called “guilty pleasures”. It could be a musician that you don’t necessarily like to admit to listening to, or a game of some sort maybe, or if you’re Amber Valentine, it’s booze! While I am a big fan of awful music, games, and booze, my guilty pleasure comes in the form of a television series by the name of The OC. For those of you don’t know, The OC was one of those awful teen dramas that Fox airs every so often. Although the show ended a few years ago, I still absolutely love it. How much, you ask? Let’s just say that I have all four seasons on DVD and a couple of posters still on my walls. All of my sickening obsessions aside, The OC had more to offer than just a riveting story line and a bunch of good looking actors. The OC Soundtracks (which I HIGHLY recommend downloading) are awesome, to say the least and they introduced me to a whole new variety of musicians including a Mr. Patrick Park.
Park’s album Loneliness Knows My Name has quickly become one of my favorite albums ever. There really isn’t anything about it that I do not love. The lyrics and vocals are inherently amazing on every single track and, as you may or may not know, that’s hard to find when it comes to music. In all seriousness though, Patrick Park is the artist that I choose when I want to listen to something that will relax me as well as consume me with outstandingly beautiful lyrics and a voice that makes me go weak in the knees. Did I mention that he’s also a pretty attractive dude? Cause he totally is. I’m not sure how much of a difference that really makes to most people, but I know I like when good-looking dudes sing at me!
Patrick Park has quickly become one of my absolute favorite musicians and he definitely deserves that title. He is a fantastic musician in every way and should be recognized as such. His most recent release, Come What Will, proves that as his music career progresses, so does he. I have a lot of love for everything that Park does and I am very much looking forward to hearing what he comes up with in the future.
