Patrick van Zandwijk is the other 1/2 of Purple Patron. He started playing guitar at the age of twelve. While the guitar is his main instrument he grew interested in different ways to form his soundscapes through other string instruments. While mainly rocking a Taylor 110CE he also plays the ukulele, mandolin, banjo and resonator for Purple Patron.
His love, passion and taste in music came mostly from his father, who plays piano, organ and guitar. Patrick has been writing solo music for almost ten years and is currently professionally known as TuskHead.
In the band Patrick takes the role of lead vocalist and guitarist. Besides singing, playing guitar (and other string-instruments in their recordings) he also utilises his trusted blues-harp to give that country/bluegrass twang to their performances.
Recognisable by his bad jokes and his flood-fedora, you’ll always be able to feel the passion and fun through every performance.
