Art Patience releases his latest acoustic album THE UNKNOWN – a collection of nine New Age harmonica, acoustic guitar, and drum songs created in the traditions of World Folk Instrumentals.

Fans have claimed Art’s talent is “turning a single note into a symphony” and he credits this talent to growing up listening to his mother sing in over 40 concerts with the Seattle Symphony Choral in the 60’s and 70’s.
After a decade and a half of music studies and playing in professional Rhythm & Blues bands as a Chicago-style harmonica player, Art teamed up with Windham Hill/Heart Dance Records pianist Scott Cossu. From performing arts centers to event concert stages, Scott and Art’s friendship led them to tour the Western states for over 200 shows in 20 years.
In 2015 Art joined Heart Dance Records with his debut release, The Recognition. Nominated for “Best New Artist of the Year” award by Zone Music Reporter in 2018, this soothing harmonica album was recorded and produced by John Herrera at Clamsville Studios and has sustained on international airplay charts, including NPR’s “Echoes” program.
