Folk, blues, country, rock & roll
"Portland indie-Americana band Patina have just released their (3rd) album Hard Luck Sound and 'All I Ever Had' is a great example of the line they walk through folk and country music like a contemporary version of The Band or a less rambunctious Houndmouth. They've got a great handle on not overplaying their hand or allowing things to get too busy. Most importantly they know the song is king and they serve it with great playing, mood setting and some fine vocal harmonies."

"The Americana sextet emanate a warm familiarity on their third LP 'Hard Luck Sound,' making the kind of music that feels like hanging with old friends."

Patina has been writing and performing original Americana songs for over a decade. Founded by songwriter Sam Hopkins and guitarist Bret Agins, the band features Josh Taylor (drums), Jon Alexander (keys), Sarah Hopkins (vocals), and John MacKay (bass).
Over the years, PATINA has continued to forge their sound, with Hopkins’ songwriting brought to life through the collective musicianship of the band. “Hard Luck Sound” is that sound, and the title of their third studio album, released April 3, 2020. The music video for featured single 'All I Ever Had' has received recognition by film festivals, including official selections at Montreal Independent Film Festival (Honorable Mention), Sunshine City Film Festival, Frostbite International Indie Fest (Best Music Video) and Propsector International Film Festival.
