“ It takes a rare specimen who can sing like he gargles with ancient gravel soaked in Kamchatka vodka and still make it sound appealing, but that's only one of Alabama's Abe Partridge's many gifts. What is most striking about this musician is just how much his own man he is. He obviously tuned into a different drummer early in life and has been chasing that sound ever since. At heart, though, Abe Partridge sounds like he waits for inner inspiration to take over his soul and then lets it rip. He's no doubt seen life from all sides of the carnival and knows there are no givens: everything is up for grabs and everyone needs to hold on to what they've got. Partridge has the gift of music tattooed in his guts and isn't afraid of showing it however he can. Listen very close. ”
Abe Partridge is a former Baptist preacher who accepted a pastorate at 25 and then left after a near nervous breakdown at 27. He joined the US Air Force and is a veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. Now in his well-seasoned mid-30s, he has begun to share his story through his music. Abe performs his songs like an old-time preacher gone mad - with all the soul he can muster. He is a poet, not afraid to tackle any subject. He makes no attempt at pop stardom or radio play - just delivers somber stories with a burning message that demand an honest hearing.
