THE JAMES PATTERSON PROJECT: A SOLO DEBUT from NEW YORK NATIVE James Patterson, the GRAMMY-nominated song writer, music producer, vocalist and 1/2 of the globally renowned electronic duo, The Knocks.
The multi-instrumentalist channels influences ranging from hiphop, house, and classic R&B into a style uniquely his own, whose music is a love letter to New York. His style has been developed over years of commanding underground New York DJ sets, cutting his teeth at recording studios and performing on renowned stages across the world. Patterson displays a deep and abiding love for the music that shaped him and makes work that speaks to the heart of the New York underground. As his résumé will tell you, he is too dynamic to be defined by a single channel.
With The Knocks, he has toured and shared the stage with Justin Bieber, Ellie Goulding, Deadmau5, Skrillex, Big Boi, M.I.A., Sleigh Bells, Tiesto, Martin Solveig, Weezer, Two Door Cinema Club, and Calvin Harris as well as headlining individually as 1/2 of The Knocks. He has also written, produced and recorded alongside the likes of Carly Rae Jepsen, Wyclef Jean, Foster The People, Method Man, Cam’ron, Sofi Tukker, and more.
