The Pete Kilpatrick Band
"Portland has the biggest crush on Pete Kilpatrick... the new star of the [Maine] music scene," says the Portland Phoenix. And judging by the wave of success the 23-year old singer-songwriter has had in the past two years – sharing the stage with such artists as Guster, Gavin DeGraw, O.A.R., Ray Lamontagne, Better Than Ezra, Blues Traveler and many more while also selling more than 17,000 records independently – it looks like the rest of the nation may find themselves just as smitten with him very soon.
It seems all eyes are on Kilpatrick and his band whenever they are in the Great State of Maine, with the Portland Press Herald calling him, “The Maine Artist to Watch in 2007.” And now the rest of the country is beginning to peek in on the band’s music with steady internet CD sales and heavy MySpace traffic. ThisIsModern.net praised Kilpatrick as “the best kept secret in indie music.” But with a burgeoning fan base that is growing by the minute in New England and supporters sprouting up across the country and even over seas, it appears that the secret has been leaked rather massively.
