Field Medic “Used 2 Be A Romantic” – Listen

Field Medic is Los Angeles-based folk artist Kevin Patrick, and this song from his new album ‘Fade into the Dawn’ (out April 19th).  It was inspired by a terrible gig – but Kevin Patrick  tells it best “I’m not the kind of person that feels like people should pay attention to me just because I’m standing there on the stage – I’m more than willing to work for it, but when it becomes obvious that I’m not even going to get that chance it can feel very disheartening. This particular show was a record breaking case of what my friends & I call “clam chatter”. I powered through the set & walked off stage early. Disgruntled, all I wanted was to go have a smoke & get a few drinks in me to forget what just happened, but since I was far from home & tour without a tour manager or merch person I had to put my stuff away & immediately face the fray to go stand around at merch hoping to make some sales to turn the night around in some spiritually meaningless, but financially sound way.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
