All Music Guide:
Boston-based folk artist Patty Larkin is a talented singer/songwriter and guitarist with a large New England following. She considers herself a musical adventurer and desires to write songs designed to invite audiences to share her journeys. She began recording in the mid-'80s for Philo Records and each successive album reflects her growth as an artist. Her compositions are known for their depth, sensuality, and introspection. Proficient on acoustic, electric, and slide guitar, her playing style has been compared to Bonnie Raitt's. Since 1991, Larkin has been recording acclaimed albums for HighStreet Records, and though her strongest following remains in New England, she remains a favorite on folk circuits throughout the U.S. Watch the Sky, on which Larkin plays nearly a dozen different instruments, was released by Vanguard Records in 2008. In 2010 Larkin released 25, an unplugged acoustic set of 25 reworked love songs, to celebrate her 25th year as a recording artist.
