"Seattle-based singer/songwriter Bill Patton finally steps out of the shadows with his full-length debut. Bill has played guitar and pedal steel for the Fleet Foxes, Jesse Sykes, J. Tillman (Father John Misty), and many others over his storied career as an in-demand session player and sideman. Never one to play it safe, the new album from the essential Seattle chanteur contains head-turning radical re-workings of both 'Jenny from the Block' and 'I Want To Hold Your Hand,' adding layers of intrigue to this already-rich tapestry. Far from a side-note, A New Kind of Man proves that Patton can more than hold his own and hang with the big dogs as a songwriter and studio-smith. It's the quiet ones, again and again. A great and majestic Americana record a la Red House Painters, Lambchop, or Lanegan, from pedal steel journeyman."
