Lap slide guitarist and roots troubadour Pat Tierney brings an eclectic and captivating musical experience to everything he touches. Taking influence from the likes of Bob Dylan, Cat Stevens, and Ben Harper, Pat's music dances between folk, blues, roots, and soul. A true songwriter and poet, Pat brings an old school approach with modern tales of love, loss, hope, and social justice.
Over the past 18 months, Pat has toured across the country with the likes of Australian blues-rock legend Russell Morris, roots reggae lords, The Beautiful Girls and good friends Bobby Alu to name a few, spending time in between recording his brand new album 'Red Moon', released in late 2019 to rave reviews.
Winter 2020 will see Pat hit the road with blues maestro Ash Grunwald for a run of special shows after a few months away from the stage, as well as some time back in the studio.
"Red Moon impresses with the pulling power of the simple yet entrancing lyrics, and the captivating voice in perfect balance with the superb instrumentation" ****4 STARS

"The sophomore album by NSW singer-songwriter Pat Tierney, Red Moon eases its way into the consciousness in understated fashion.
While influences are detectable (Bob Dylan, Ben Harper, Xavier Rudd), Tierney has a voice of his own – in both words and melodies."

"Opening up the night was North Coast slide guitarist Pat Tierney. Admittedly not knowing any of his tracks going into the night, Tierney was tight and accomplished as he brought his brand of roots to those starting their Friday night early. Closing on a stellar cover of the Paul Simon classic “Diamonds On The Soles Of Her Shoes”, I’d definitely look at investing some time into discovering Pat Tierney"
