Music Review by CoffeeTalk Jazz magazine editor, Bridgette Lewis
Patrice Isley’s music artfully threads R&B, Jazz, and Soul into every note she sings. Her rendition of "Free" made famous by Deniece Williams has been described as "one of the great soul voices" by fan Yolanda Jefferey-Smith CoffeeTalk Jazz Radio
Reading, PA (4-year fan and listener).

Over time Patrice has proven she has staying power with a music career spanning 30 years. She is still a consistent interpreter of every song sang. There is something in the way Patrice moves an audience when she holds a single note. "A joyful, sonic immersion made for the dance floors. Her sound distorting time with the old speak easy style and stage presence in this modern age of music. This songbird’s music shines a light on real singing and solo work." Her latest single “Patrice Groove” is a marvelous piece of melodic music art with a fluid flow supported by world class pianist Tom Schuman of Spyro Gyra: Add this track to your Spotify play list. https://www.coffeetalkjazz.com/patriceisleymusicmarketing
I have worked with Patrice for months personally interviewing her while she bared her soul and shared her music journey on CoffeeTalk Jazz Radio. It was unanimous after the CoffeeTalk team heard her single "Better.," that I was asked to listen to the track. I was hooked on her voice and selected her for a coveted spot to represent our international brand. She is a fan favorite.
