Liverpool born songwriter Duncan Patterson has been active since the early 1990s. Signing his first record contract at the age of 17 he set out playing clubs and festivals around Europe and South America with his first band Anathema. After quitting the band in 1998 Patterson formed Antimatter, a musical entity intended to transcend genres and exist outside of the commercial music industry.
The music can be described as dark, emotive, often cinematic. Regardless of the instrumentation used, theres a unique aura to Patterson's compositions.
After three albums with Antimatter he ventured further afield, collaborating with various artists including Irish alternative rockers The Aftermath who's singles reached the national charts. 2007 saw a collaboration with German rapper Bushido with the track Von der Skyline zum Bordstein zurück reach number 6 in the German charts.
Patterson also composed and recorded albums with Íon and Alternative 4 before embarking on his solo career. Debut album The Eternity Suite was released in 2015, and 2022 welcomes the long awaited follow up Grace Road. 2022 will also see the debut release of Antifear, a collaboration with former Anathema vocalist Darren White.
Liverpool born songwriter Duncan Patterson (formerly of Anathema, Antimatter) returns with new album Grace Road after a 5 year absence. Grace Road is a lofi gothic opus which, at times, echoes Patterson's compositions of days gone by. Palestinian singer Enas Al-Said features throughout the album and brings a beautiful ethereal presence to the songs with her voice.
