Patrick's 2013 release, Fire Mountain, is already getting airplay on Sony Picture's The Young and Restless, Weather Channel and Pandora Radio. Most of the songs were inspired after Colorado's Four Mile Canyon Fire in 2010. Patrick expressed, "Watching fire come over the ridge, on Sugarloaf Mountain, was scary and profoundly moving. Our house burned down when I was 8 years old and that experience brought up a lot of feelings. I wrote these songs to feel better during a challenging time. Even though things were difficult, this experience inspired many positive changes in my life. The music has a relaxed and uplifting feeling."
