Today we are joined by singer and performer Patty Mattson. Born and raised in Minneapolis, Minnesota the second daughter of Ronald & Catherine Mattson. Her father was an amazing self taught guitar player wo played in a band called The Vibrations at one point they warmed up for the Beach Boys and he got to jam with Bob Dylan before Bob Dylan got successful.
Her grandfather Cal had that same musical gift on the piano.
Patty's Mom is the oldest of 10! She also grew up in Duluth MN, and was the beautiful, popular cheerleading captain, class secretary, in the choir, who loved school, music, and most of all family.
Suffice it to say, the apple didn’t fall far from the family tree. Patty once a child prodigy, (who has been funny her whole life), craftily imitated Lily Tomlin’s Ernestine and Edith Ann at 6, and would start singing at 8. To be sure, after auditioning with hundreds of other talented children, she was tapped by the Twin Cities highly respected Children’s Theatre Company to attend their theatre school through Jr. High. She would continue her music and theatre studies at MacPhail Center for the Arts at the University of Minnesota as well as the world renowned Guthrie Theatre. Subsequently, this singing great was signed by Dez Dickerson of Prince and the Revolution to her first production deal.
In 1990, the beautiful, 5’5 blonde moved to Los Angeles and was enlisted, in short order, to sing on the debut CD for The Boys Club for MCA records.
We are looking forward to hearing more from this talented guest and find what is coming up for her as 2013 ends and 2014
