Patrik Gochez

Patrik Gochez is an American songwriter, musician, illustrator, and leader of the band WhiteShoeBrownShoe. Considered a "jukebox" writer, he covers an eclectic number of musical styles, from pre-war jazz to r&b to danceable pop/rock. Despite endless ventures into new genres, he retains an identity of his own, as his delivery is honest and expresses much more than harmony, melody, and words. Gochez won the 2006 Granite State Songwriting Competition with the title track from his debut album, Strawberry Bitter Chase.

His songwriting drifts easily from ballads to blues numbers. By playing the chords, melody, and bass simultaneously, Lacy creates a full sound that is reminiscent of John Hurt, Doc Watson, Robert Johnson, and countless others in American roots music.
