It’s probably no secret that while I love an eclectic range of music, there’s something about modern folk that really moves me. So I was thrilled to hear “Want You to Know,” the debut single from Queanbeyan singer-songwriter Patrick McKinney.

This song is so raw and honest. It really got me in the heart. It builds from a simple strumming acoustic guitar to a symphony of sound that’s big but not overblown or overproduced. The lyrics, which speak of moving through life and the trials it can bring, really speak to me.

Take a listen to this one. You won’t be disappointed.
