Filling bars and clubs across Australia with his pioneering acts Caribbe, Club Ska, LoveTown, Ten Wedge and Neptune St, within a couple of years he was one of Australia’s most in demand studio vocalists.

Pat has supported James Brown, Queen, The Eurythmics, Boy George, Crowded House, Spit Enz, Horace Andy and Luciano, Tina Arena, Technotronic, George Benson and more. In the late eighties & nineties he toured Australia, Asia & Europe as Kylie Minogue’s primary backing vocalist and since then in more recent years he’s toured extensively throughout Australia, Canada, America, Turkey and the UK.
