Best Local Act and Male Vocalist in Portland

Pete Kilpatrick Band + Pete Kilpatrick


Nearing liftoff

It's safe to say that the Pete Kilpatrick Band picked up this year's Best Local Act award in part because Kilpatrick himself is also the reader favorite for Best Male Vocalist. His dulcet tones, which easily move between fierce and falsetto (sometimes in the same song), are one of the reasons that he and his band (Matt Cosby, Matt Lydon, Steve Morell, and Nick Goodale) are a joy to watch, and to listen to. And while he may be a local favorite, Kilpatrick — who recently released a fourth album, Hope In Our Hearts — certainly has wide-reaching appeal. Over the past year, the band got signed to the LA-based Authentik Artists label, shot a video for the Hope In Our Hearts title song (it should be available online soon), and toured out West and in the Northeast with the Wailers, Guster, and Eve6 (Kilpatrick also performed solo as an opening act for the Barenaked Ladies in Colorado earlier this year). With good reason, Pete Kilpatrick is going places. |
