I wasn’t there in the early coffee house days of the likes of John Prine or Guy Clark but I did recently stumble across Abe Partridge and felt the same excitement of discovering a true American original. Rough hewn out of the earthy heart and soul of the South his songs are incisive, funny/sad and best of all, despite the greats I’ve mentioned beyond comparison, remain unique to just him.

Thanks Rick! 

"I'd never heard Abe Partridge's songs prior to his coming into Studio H2O and no idea as what to expect. Within seconds of hearing the first song we recorded, I was fixated by both the strength of his unique vocal style and the compelling poetry and imagery in his songs. I usually avoid comparisons, as they tend to be misconstrued, but Abraham Partridge is cut from the same cloth as Waits, Dylan, and Cohen. Not that he "sounds" like any of them. Quite the contrary, but that his songs and delivery have a superbly defined style that is all his own is undeniable." - Rick Hirsch, guitarist for Wet Willie, Alabama Music Hall of Fame

20 Acts You Can't Afford To Miss - SouthSounds 2017

Proud to be listed in this article from AL.COM

Abe Partridge 

Origin: Mobile, Alabama 

For fans of: Delta Blues 

You gotta hear: "White Trash Lipstick", "Escambia County" 

One of the Gulf Coast's best-kept secrets, songwriter Abe Partidge provides a bleak, downtrodden outlook to the world through song. Scruffy and broken, but often clever, Partridge's act is all about how great music used to be when people and places mattered. A true throwback, he's definitely a unique performer, you cannot miss.

2017 IBC 

The 2017 International Blues Challenge in Memphis was a wonderful experience. It was an honor to represent the Gulf Coast Blues Society. I had the opportunity to play my own songs to new attentive audiences of blues fans (pretty cool considering I do not consider myself a blues musician). I made some new fans, and new friends. I made some contacts that I trust will help me make advances in my career. 
I love Memphis. I love Lew and the staff at Lew's Blew Note on Beale Street. I love the blues.

Happy New Years! 

2016 was a wonderful year for me!

In December of 2015, I had my first paid gig. If you would have told me then that in the coming year I would play all over the Southeast, record an album, get radio play from Alabama to Texas to Ohio to Maine, open shows for some of my heroes, be invited to several Songwriter festivals... I would have never believed you. It is truly humbling, and I am forever grateful for everyone that has helped me along the way.

2017 is going to be even better!

I am currently working on my second full length album with producer, Shawn Byrne in Nashville. I am focusing on gigging away from the Gulf Coast and growing my fan base outside the local area. Got some huge opportunities coming my way!

Thanks and love to everyone of you that has believed in me, and help support me on this journey.
