His Name is Really Patrick Cleandenim

The Some Velvet Blog has been raving about Baby Comes Home

"Patrick Cleandenim will remind you of The Association, David Axelrod, Marvin Gaye, Bobby Darin, Prefab Sprout, early Todd Rundgren, ELO with soul and any number of legendary Brill Building singers and songwriters. The connection between The Delfonics and Rufus Wainwright, Cleandenim's debut is big and sweeping and oh so Sixties. The stunning album is called Baby Comes Home and is finally out here in the States on Ba Da Bing!. It's a new styley! Indie-easy listening that has as much in common with Ray Conniff as it does with Belle & Sebastian.

A native of Lawrence, Kansas, Cleandenim got his musical start in the Radiohead influenced Clockwork before going solo in 2002. Moving to New York to study, he recorded the album in 2005 and it's an ambitious, infectious collection of orch-pop. "
