“The Last Soul Company”

Patrick Green

patrick greenPatrick Green counts Al Green, Luther Vandross and the Temptations among his role models, along with grittier soul men such as Willie Clayton, the late Buddy Ace and his fellow Houstonian, the late Mel Waiters. His vocals, smooth and buttermilk rich, but spiked with smoldering sensual heat, hark back to the legendary soul balladeers, yet, his songs also bespeak a modern day soul (or “urban contemporary”) aesthetic.

Green first recorded in 1992, garnering regional success with his remake of Larry Graham’s 1980 hit, When We Get Married. In 2001, he released The P.G. Man: Here Am I on the Malaco subsidiary Waldoxy; it showcases his vocals at their most emotion-packed and evocative, spiked by his unique gift for witty lyric imagery. On Sweet Patoo, he peppers his story about searching for a lost love with references to computer hacking and cloak-and-dagger intrigue while riding a popping, propulsive groove; Understanding finds him demanding respect from his lady in terms both street-tough and yearning; Girlfriend (co-written/produced by Mel Waiters) is a hard-edged, synth-toughened dispatch from love’s front lines. Green’s forte, though, remains his ballads—Gift of Your Love, his version of Willie Clayton’s One Last Kiss, et al.—on which he undergirds his callow-sounding croon with a grown man’s life-hardened determination to prevail.
