The Pttsburgh Tribune says: "Spadaro plays clean, lyrical leads on guitar that are reminiscent of the style of the late Jerry Garcia in their economy and fluidity." - Rege Behe
The music cuts through the everyday, connecting to the core. "I like to combine improvisation with good solid song writing" says Patti. "I love to get people up and dancing, and get into that "feel-good" zone. Music can open minds and inspire, it can bring people together, even expand consciousness and make a difference in the world. It's also a whole lot of fun."
Drummers Jim Donovan (Rusted Root) and Eric Kurtzrock both lay down tasty grooves on the disc. Engineer Sean McDonald (The Clarks, Aretha Franklin, Sinead O'Connor) recorded the CD. Skip Sanders (The Clarks, Bill Deasy) plays keyboards on the disc. Live shows feature Drummer Joffo Simmons (Joe Grushecky and the Houserockers), Janelle Burdell, John Brainard and Bassist Matt McClintock.

Joe Con is a Kentucky born, Los Angeles based singer/songwriter who writes and performs original music and lyrics in a variety of genres. He draws inspiration from the blues, rock & roll, folk, soul, gospel, country and hip-hop, and blends these elements into a new Americana that is all his own. Con’s songs are easy to listen to and hard to forget. Listen once and you will instantly fall for the happy, catchy grooves. Listen twice and you’ll find yourself singing along. Joe Con is more than just a gifted songwriter and a clever wordsmith. His voice, guitar, harmonica and storytelling blend into a whole that is far greater than the sum of its parts. Don’t be fooled by his name: Joe Con is the real thing. His latest collection of songs is warm, intimate, and personable. It plays like a letter to a dear friend or a long lost love. Perhaps this is why he calls it “Yours Truly.”
