Adrian Patrick (Lead Vocals)
Adrian is the founding father of Otherwise. A born artist, Adrian writes all his own lyrics and has a gift of connecting with his audience. Adrian pulls from personal experiences and conveys his raw emotions not only in words but through his powerful performances on stage. Adrian is captivating, engaging and enigmatic. He is every bands dream as a front man, but was unfulfilled as an artist until he found his current cast of band mates.
Born and raised in Las Vegas Nevada, Adrian first picked up the guitar at the young age of 2. He would beg for his guitar before bed and would pluck at the strings until he fell asleep. Adrian started playing in bands in early 2000;s struggling.through a string of musicians, trying to find the right fit before his brother joined in 2005 and they started Otherwise on its path. At that time life started really happening. People were dying and relationships were ending. The impact of these raw emotions came across in his lyrics. Heart-felt songs about Love, Loss, Struggle, Survival and Overcoming Adversity. Since then, the brothers have been rallying to be heard. Fighting to get their positive message out there. Adrian has felt at home performing in his home town opening for major national rock bands he has come to call not only his colleagues but his friends. It wasn’t until his collaboration with In this Moment as a co-singer with Maria Brinks and subsequent national tour that his desire was fueled to push Otherwise to be more. His love of the road fed his cravings as an artist for greater life experiences reawakened his passion for musical inspiration.
