Patrick Rydman

Patrick Rydman is a rare occurence on the Swedish music scene: A male jazz singer of the younger generation who furthermore writes his own material. His music sounds like “poetic singer/songwriter jazz with strong pop sentiments and a little bit of circus”, according to Patrick himself. Influenced by songwriters like Bacharach, Jobim, Paddy McAloon, Bill Withers and Joni Mitchell, raised on pop songs and tunes from the Great American Songbook, the resulting mix is Patrick’s own: melodic, personal, groovy, intimate and full of variation. He is backed by some of Sweden’s hottest musicians: Fabian Kallerdahl (MusicMusicMusic, Galore) on keyboards, Josef Kallerdahl (MusicMusicMusic, Josef & Erika, New Tango Orquesta) on bass, Henrik Cederblom (Sofia Karlsson, Freddie Wadling, Den Fule) on guitar and Miko Rezler (Stefan Andersson, Magnum Coltrane Price, Valdemar) on drums

Groovy and laid back, he is walking the streets of Gothenburg or other big cities, hangs in bars and cafés, dances the bossa nova and back beat blues and sits and ponders lost love. Many of the songs bear clear traces of Burt Bacharch, in others it sounds like Bo Kaspers (Swedish pop/jazz band) and in some one can associate to the later works of Elvis Costello. Patrick Rydman has been appearing on the music and theatre scenes of Gothenburg for the past 15 years. Here he makes his debut with only original material, is the lead vocalist and plays the trumpet. Pretty much all the tracks are strong melodies that grow on you after a couple of listens
