While Ryan Patterson, the singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and producer behind Fotocrime, often sings in an intimately whispered baritone, he stands in stark contrast to the laconic troubadour role typically associated with his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. Patterson has spent over two-and-a-half decades adding to the town’s legacy with his impassioned and activist-minded approach to music, his distinctive work as a graphic artist, and his contributions to nearly every aspect of creative underground culture. After his time fronting forward-thinking art-inflected punk bands, Patterson looked to the urban centers of London, New York, and Berlin for new sonic inspiration, drawing from the passion of his roots while tapping into the sounds of classic EBM and post-punk artists for Fotocrime.
The music of Fool’s Ghost explores the liminal state between hope and reality. Amber Thieneman’s vocals and keyboards express the tension separating shadows from light. Nick Thieneman’s guitar charts a path through an evocative atmosphere. Together they create an immersive soundscape — a lullaby for ghosts, an elegy for the apocalypse.
