Today on our Hot Seat we have a multi-talented artist “Pato Motown”. Lets have a chat with him.
Twist Online : First of all introduce yourself to our readers?
Pato Margetic : Hi! My name is Pato Margetic. I sing, play guitar, write songs, record, and produce Music Videos and Events in my hometown of Detroit!
Twist Online : Who or what inspired you to get into music industry?
Pato Margetic :When I first heard Jimi Hendrix playing guitar I instantly wanted to play. The song that lit me up was
“Purple Haze”…I knew right then and there I was going to be a guitar player.
Twist Online : Tell us about your recent release “RIDE OUT”?
Pato Margetic : “Ride Out” has a special soulful, vibe to this song, that has elements of funk and jazz that I am absolutely in love with. My Producer Dre Butterz really pushed my falsetto range on this record, and it really brought me out of my comfort zone in the moment, but now has created a whole new confidence while listening back and performing it live. As for the new Music Video, it’s an amazing piece that my younger brother, (Nick Margetic) directed. The Music Video was definitely a team creation as we all came together and made a James Bond inspired story in today’s Detroit.
Twist Online : What kind of response you are have received from the release?
Pato Margetic : So far, everyone that has seen it and heard it are loving it! I am humbled and honored to show this to people and it’s just another example of how much our team loves to create and push ourselves to make the highest quality art.
Twist Online : What attracts you more, working in studios or performing live?
Pato Margetic :Performing live has always attracted me more. I have made an awesome living so far off of live performance through the years and it only gets better with tours, special events, weddings, corporate gigs, it’s really a thrilling lifestyle and although live is my main attractive, recording is like the cherry on top!
Twist Online : What’s your favorite music genre?
Pato Margetic : My favorite genre is R&B. I say R&B because it always has amazingly talented singers, (From tone to range) and heartfelt, meaning lyrics and stories. To me, it was always the music that would take me somewhere sonically and imaginatively.
Twist Online : Have you set some goals to achieve as a music artist?
Pato Margetic : Yes, I have set many goals as an artist. I’m grateful to say many have been accomplished! Although, a world tour, a Grammy, Publishing Deal, and movie cameo’s are always in my daydreams.
Twist Online : Are you working on any new project?
Pato Margetic : I am fresh canvas right now, but I definitely have some awesome demos in the works! “Ride Out” is my newest releasing in May 2017!
