Patricia Santos is a songwriter and singing cellist (or vocellist) who loves many different kinds of music. She draws on her classical training to meld the cello with non-classical styles and loves to continually learn new techniques or find new ways to use old ones. Her own songs range from blues to rock to folk and art-pop. Lucid Culture called her a "dark, diverse cello rocker", and her debut EP "Never Like You Think" was listed on New York Music Daily's Top 50 NYC Albums of 2015. Patricia has a duo of singing cellists called The Whiskey Girls and is a member of Kotorino. A New York native, she has played in venues around the country including Carnegie Hall, Joe's Pub, Bowery Ballroom, Music Hall of Williamsburg, 54 Below, House of Blues, The Music Box Supper Club in Cleveland, and The Oriental Theater in Denver. She has worked with artists such as Hurray for the Riff Raff (and can be heard on their latest album, "The Navigator"), Martha Redbone, Seafair, Carner and Gregor, Stars of the Lid, Vandaveer, and La Strada. Patricia is currently on faculty at Rockland Conservatory of Music. She received her Bachelor’s of Music in Cello Performance from Baldwin-Wallace Conservatory with Regina Mushabac, and her postgraduate studies were with Bryan Dumm of the Cleveland Orchestra.
