Her Quest

Patricia Martin was born in Kentucky, and raised and educated in New York.  Patricia began her formal education as a singer at Fiorelli LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and later sang with the R&B band, Nature’s Gift at the Village Gate, on Good Morning America, in Boston, MA. She did studio work during that time. Patricia began composing songs in her early 20s but left it to pursue her education and career in the field of law.  Patricia has recently returned to song writing and her compositions are a fusion of R&B, spoken word and funky tonk.  In 2012, Patricia has led the band, Her Quest, in conjunction with her music partner bassist Brenda Alderman.  Her Quest had their first listening party in November of 2012, with an audience of over 50 people.  The response was positive and has encouraged Patricia to move the project forward. 

Brenda Alderman is a multifaceted bassist and vocalist born and raised in Queens, New York City. Brenda was classically trained from high school through college and was a member of the nationally renowned All-City High School Chorus.  Brenda has toured nationally and internationally with notable all female bands such as The Bloods and IBIS at Radio City Music Hall, Lincoln Center and the Apollo Theatre.  Brenda is a studio session musician with notable singer/song writers and on commercial jingles. Brenda’s most current project is in conjunction with Patricia Martin in the group Her Quest. Together, they produced a demo that Brenda arranged and engineered, with seven original R&B and spoken word compositions.
