Artist Info

Ginger Patterson has enough energy to power a city. Its energy that turns full throttle, ignited by the heat of her soulful voice and the power and passion of her performance, Ginger writes simple songs, which include Jazz, R&B, Hip-Hop, Rap Spoken Word & Blues. She writes about complex things such as love, family, home etc. Phases turn, emotions connect, melody's soar. You'll sing along even though you've never heard the tune before. Ginger writes from a perspective of distance, of interludes between lovers and friends, and the roads that lead them from place to place. Ginger's CD (Under The Covers ), is awesome mixing elements of Jazz, R&B New Soul, Hip-Hop Spoken Word & Blues, to create some of the catchiest well written songs.
