Patricia Richey is a 23-year-old vocalist of Irish descent who describes her music as country-alternative-pop. “Most of my songs are kind of pop, influenced by alternative music and country, and ethereal with a Celtic quality to the songs,” she explains. Richey recorded her self-produced debut EP Patricia Richey in Nashville picking covers from Snow Patrol (“Run”), Taylor Swift and the Civil Wars (“Safe and Sound”) and Sting (“Fields of Gold), plus three original songs. Richey is a native of Chevy Chase, Maryland and a dual citizen of the United States and Ireland. She is a full-time medical student at Georgetown University School of Medicine. She has always wanted to find her niche in both medicine and music. In a more surgical way (no pun intended), she intends to find the fans that consider Pandora their favorite music source. “I’m going to connect to those people that listen to all sorts of music – a little country, a little pop, a little alternative. I don’t see myself being categorized,” she says. Patricia spends every free minute at the beach, the mountains of Sedona or in the New York City theatre district when not in school.
