Patrick Sweany Band Album Release/Lilly Hiatt

When: Sat., Oct. 24, 9 p.m. 2015

Producer and engineer Joe McMahan helmed singer-songwriter Patrick Sweany’s new album, Daytime Turned to Nighttime, a low-key collection of tunes that suggests Sweany’s mellower side. With its cooing background vocals and twangy guitars, album opener “First of the Week,” for example, has a laid-back vibe to it. “I feel like I made four rock records in a row and was moving away from the finger style and acoustic guitar style approach,” Sweany says when asked about his approach on the album. “That’s what I started with. It’s what makes me unique and differentiates me. I worked really hard studying to attain this blues pedigree, for lack of a better word. For this album, we have a really funky rhythm section. I wanted to concentrate on singin’ rather than shoutin.’ I just thought the record could use some softer strokes.” (Niesel)
