Patsy Monteleone grew up in New York City surrounded by relatives who loved music and sang for the pleasure of it. He honed his harmonies singing doo-wop with his talented cousins, and he listened to all kinds of music that his mother, father, and elder sister and brother would play on records and on the radio—everything from classical to show tunes to jazz to R&B and rock and roll. Early on, he realized that he had an affinity for absorbing music and interpreting it through his voice. In 1980, Patsy discovered the ukulele, and that little guitar relative has been his instrumental companion ever since.
Patsy sings jazz-pop standards with a smooth baritone that is reminiscent of great 20th Century crooners such as Nat King Cole, Bing Crosby, Al Bowlly, and Johnny Hartman. The rich tone of his voice coupled with his unique, fluent ukulele playing are hallmarks of Patsy's creative performing style.
