MORE CRITICAL ACCLAIM FOR "AWAKENING!"
Keys and Chords, an online Belgian music magazine since 2003, recently reviewed Patrick Sieben's newly released CD "Awakening" and gave him high praise.
"On the field of a musical carrier, Patrick Sieben (Hastings, Minnesota) is still an unwritten page, but with the release of his first CD, things might change a lot for him."
"He looks great (handsome) and has all the ingredients to give him the status of a hitmaker."
"On "Awakening" there are plenty of songs which can, with a little help from the radio stations, grow out to number-one hits. This really counts for the elegant rocking opening song "Soul Awakening" and even more for the fabulous "Hollow". In my opinion, this last song is the absolute topper of "Awakening."
These quotes echo what others have been proclaiming, as well. Keys and Chords ended their review by sending a bulletin to DJ's and radio stations around the world:
"A message to all dj’s: Put "Hollow" by Patrick Sieben on your playlist and it will be a guaranteed hit."

A solemn day, indeed. Patrick Sieben was honored to be asked to perform for 500 firefighters and their families at New York New York Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas for a September 11th memorial event. The firefighters lined up and marched around the casino, stopping to honor their fallen comrades before the Statue of Liberty. As the chilling bagpipes played, people lined the streets to pay their respects. Before and after this procession of firefighters, Patrick entertained. It was a moving day for all.

Positive reviews of Patrick's new CD continue. This week, Driftwood Magazine, an east coast online magazine that publishes music reviews, has written high praise for Patrick and his music. Of the approximately 40 new releases they get each week, they chose Patrick's CD as one worthy of favorable compliment. Ellen Geisel, Ballston Lake, NY, had this to say about Patrick's new CD "Awakening:"
There’s a sweetness to Patrick Sieben’s voice and it leaves a firm imprint on the big pop-rock that he performs on Awakening. It’s what Kevin Cronin of REO Speedwagon did, and still does, so well. “Tomorrow in Your Eyes” and “For the Last Time,” with their great hooks, are straight from that playbook. Sieben’s own “Diamond” has a good arrangement that allows him to deliver arena-ready crescendos.
Providing online reviews since 1997, BVS Reviews' Bruce Von Stiers also reported on Patrick's music:
Patrick Sieben has performed in front of President Clinton and current Vice-President Joe Biden. From distant locales such as Ireland to his hometown of Hastings , Minnesota , Patrick's music has been heard by a wide variety of people. Now a lot more people are going to be hearing the music of Patrick Sieben...
With great help in the background and comparisons to pop icons like Richard Marx, Patrick Sieben seems to be making great strides with his music. This debut album should bring Patrick to a whole new level of popularity.

Patrick Sieben’s new CD Awakening is beginning to make waves in several media venues.
Alternativeaddiction.com has posted a free download of his single “Hollow” on their Home Page next to music information by O.A.R., Cold Play, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Lenny Kravitz, and other bands.
An online magazine, relatemag.com, reviews Patrick’s new album beginning on it’s Home Page as well. Ellen Marie Hawkins describes Patrick’s “flawless voice” and how she was “instantly smitten” by his opening song “Soul Awakening.” She goes on to say, “It’s one of those opening numbers that so far exceeded my expectations, I refused to hit repeat only because I couldn’t wait to hear what else the cd had to offer. While “Soul Awakening” sets the bar really high, Patrick Sieben manages to duplicate the magic on at least 3 other tracks.”

Patrick’s new CD “Awakening” was well received this month when it was introduced and performed for the first time for approximately 500 enthusiastic fans at his CD release party in his hometown of Hastings, MN. The Hastings Music Festival was the perfect venue for this release as local fans lined up for CD’s and autographs following the performance of their native son. The Festival was a benefit for a local charity, Hastings Family Service, which provides food, clothing, medical, and educational assistance to needy families. Proceeds from the sales of Patrick’s new CD also were donated to the charity.
The remainder of August looks to be just as exciting as Patrick continues to perform shows in Las Vegas at the Palazzo Hotel and Casino and Texas Station Casino. In addition, Patrick will be traveling to Los Angeles this month to promote his new release.
