Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter Pat Wictor makes his home in many musical worlds. Grounded in rural blues and gospel traditions, Wictor’s lean, poetic songs and expressive guitar playing are seasoned with jazz, pop, improvisational surprise, philosophy, and social commentary.

"...Pat Wictor walks onstage. He places a Guild DV-52 flat across his lap and begins playing slide guitar. The sounds are snaky and sizzling...."--Richard Cuccaro, Acoustic Live

Wictor’s newest recording, FLARE, a concept album about the effects of political division in America, was called “brilliant” by WFUV’s John Platt.  FLARE reached #1 on the Folk-DJ charts in 2022, with “How Will They Tell It” climbing to the #1 song.  His duo album Counterpoise was a collaboration with jazz vocalist and multi-media artist Deborah Latz.   The two first sang together at a vocal improvisation workshop led by Bobby McFerrin.  His previous solo release, This is Absolutely Real: Visions and Versions of Phil Ochs, reached #2 on the Folk-DJ charts and was nominated for Best Tribute Album by the Independent Music Awards.
