Patrick Rydman is a rare occurrence on the Swedish music scene: A male jazz singer of the younger generation who furthermore writes his own material. His music sounds like “poetic singer/songwriter jazz with strong pop sentiments and a little bit of circus”, according to Patrick himself.
Influenced by songwriters like Bacharach, Jobim, Paddy McAloon, Bill Withers and Joni Mitchell, raised on pop songs and tunes from the Great American Songbook, the resulting mix is Patrick’s own: melodic, personal, groovy, intimate and full of variation. He is backed by some of Sweden’s hottest musicians: Fabian Kallerdahl (MusicMusicMusic, Galore) on keyboards, Josef Kallerdahl (MusicMusicMusic, Josef & Erika, New Tango Orquesta) on bass, Henrik Cederblom (Sofia Karlsson, Freddie Wadling, Den Fule) on guitar and Miko Rezler (Stefan Andersson, Magnum Coltrane Price, Valdemar) on drums. Other guests include Lisen Rylander (Midaircondo, The Splendor) on sax and vocals, Malin Dahlstrom (ex Midaircondo, Disdishdance) on vocals, and Johan Hakansson (Ebbot Lundberg, Timo Raisanen, Daniel Lemma) on drums.
Patrick Rydman has been seen and heard on the Gothenburg music and theater scene for the past 15 years. He is a singing, composing and arranging member of the vocal ensemble Amanda. He has produced and written songs for other artists, worked as a theater musician and composer for stage and radio, sung Burt Bacharach-hits in the cult show The Missing Fortnight and been a featured vocal soloist with Bohusln Big Band in several productions. I Will Do It is his debut as a solo artist.
