PAT SHERIDAN BIO
It’s hard to believe that Pat Sheridan has been writing, performing and recording his own eclectic mix of music for four decades! From his early days of growing up in a west side blue collar Columbus, Ohio neighborhood in America’s heartland, to currently residing in the warmth and sunshine of Florida, Pat Sheridan’s musical roots started with garage band jams with buddies and high school gigs that focused on southern rock-styled and country leanings. Today his distinct vocals and writing echo the blues and Americana sound! Comments from his fans include:
Your music sounds real!! And that’s the way we wanna Rock &Roll !!

Alex Dixon (grandson of Willie Dixon)
Some of the songs just give me chills, its amazing on some of them you have such a Tony Joe White Vibe...Love it, Love it!! Hugs My Friend!!....Kasey Ann
After a serious health scare in 2007, Sheridan got serious about writing, producing, and recording his music that is now receiving attention not only from many over-the-air and internet radio stations, but world-wide play, including a two hour radio show special in Germany on his music only! His music has also been used on national TV shows.

Pat Sheridan’s writing, and music reside in a very special bluesy, ballsy, right-to-heart style whose time has come! As one fan stated so aptly, “Your music sounds real!”
