Radio WHAT - Featured Artist - Patrick Basile

From the very first know you’ve been hooked! And to experience the alluring voice of PATRICK nothing less than a rich, rare, and wonderful treat!
Reminiscent of the great singers past, yet, uniquely fresh in his performance and style, the charismatic sound of Patrick Basile is turning ears of music lovers, everywhere. Having showcased his talent in a variety of nightclubs all across the country, Patrick has also been a featured singer/performer in the main stage-show at the world-famous Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In addition, he has appeared as a “special-guest” soloist on numerous primetime network television specials, variety shows, and evening talk programs.
Musically speaking, not only is Patrick a supremely gifted vocal talent, but he is an accomplished orchestrator, composer, arranger, and pianist, as well. It is his lush compositions that set the mood to almost every song he sings. This, and having studied voice under two of the industry’s most renowned vocal coaches, Pasquale Caputo (New York) and Seth Riggs (Los Angeles), combine to create the evocative “Basile” signature sound that one reviewer has claimed, “transcends time”.
One thing is certain. No matter what the venue, setting, or call........
Audiences love--PATRICK BASILE
But there’s much more to this man than can be heard in his music alone. Patrick Basile is also an accomplished stage/screen actor, and a gifted artist, as well. He has accumulated an impressive list of musical theater and stage-play credits, and was recently seen in a recurring role on the NBC television soap opera, “Days of Our Lives”. Patrick’s works of art (drawings, paintings and sculptures) embody the same creative passion, as does his music. These beautiful works have graced high-end art galleries, hotel lobbies, and the homes of private collectors.
So isn’t it time you discovered the magical....captivating....allure of
PATRICK BASILE? Take a moment and “experience” his music! From the very first note, you’ll be in for a rare and wonderful treat!


Since I was 16 yrs. old I have been singing the songs of the great "PAUL WILLIAMS"!!
I have always loved his way with a lyric.
Last week, celebrity photographer, "ALAN MERCER", who has photographed Paul and his wife Mariana several times, sent my new CD, "NATURAL MAN" to Paul Williams. I recorded two of Paul's songs on this CD. Four days later we got invited to Paul's house for lunch. His wife said that he was interested in meeting me. At lunch he told me that he really liked the treatment that I gave to his songs. He also said that I pay attention to the lyrics when I sing.

Coming from a "lyricist" this is an enormous compliment! I later got a chance to play his grand piano, and he actually sang "Nice To Be Around" with me. It was very impromptu, but truly a "great" moment for me. To top things off, Alan Mercer brought his camera and shot this wonderful picture of both of us.
I think the very first song that I sang of Paul's was "LET ME BE THE ONE"!
Later, my very first piano vocal demo in New York, was a wonderful obscure song that I found of his called "NICE TO BE AROUND". In that same session I also did another obscure "WILLIAM'S" song entitled "YOU KNOW ME".
I used to sing these songs in clubs along with some of his other's.... "WHAT WOULD THEY SAY", "YOU AND ME AGAINST THE WORLD", "I WON'T LAST A DAY WITHOUT YOU", and "I NEVER HAD IT SO GOOD"!
I was also becoming popular in "church" with his music. I used to sing at weddings.
I would bring my keyboard with a small PA system and sing on the Alter.
I used a "RHODES" sound which created a very "heavenly" atmosphere in the church.
Didn't like the loft....too much echo!!
It sounded so ethereal when I sang "WE'VE ONLY JUST BEGUN", "I WON'T LAST A DAY WITHOUT YOU", and "LET ME BE THE ONE", that I always had the people crying!!
Later on, I would also perform "EVERGREEN", "WITH ONE MORE LOOK AT YOU" and "RAINY DAYS AND MONDAYS".
I am looking forward to a "great" new relationship with someone that I respect and admire, and have for many years.
Patrick Basile
