Esme Patterson Drops Tunes Off Her Unreleased Album at The Olympic

by

Singer-songwriter Esme Patterson is working on a new album. It doesn't have a name yet, and is set for release in 2019, but she did have a few new tracks ready for a small audience at The Olympic on Oct. 11.

"I was, like, '[Expletive], I want to make dancing music,'" she said ahead of her visit to Boise.

On top of music from her most recent album, We Were Next (Xtra Mile Recordings, 2016), she performed a few "reactions" songs to classics by The Beatles and Michael Jackson, and teased a handful of songs that leaned punk rock, rather than swayed to the down-tempo melodies many fans have come to expect from the Denver, Colorado-based musician.
