Pat Patrick Bio



After receiving his Bachelor of Arts Degree from Vanderbilt University, Patrick’s interest in music continued leading him to pursue a career in this field. Patrick took a position with Certron Records, where he realized he wanted desperately to get into the creative side of music production. His opportunity came when several friends asked him to help finance a studio in an old house on Division Street. Patrick agreed, and became the studio’s creative director. The studio, named Audio Media, was gaining exposure in the music industry with Patrick and his friends writing, recording and selling advertising jingles.




The Division Street house soon became too small for operations, and Patrick and his partners built a new two-story facility on 19th Avenue now known as Cal IV Music. The new studio attracted attention from national artists in the music field, hosting the likes of Dolly Parton, Hank Williams, Jr., Anne Murray, Garth Brooks, John Mellencamp, Dionne Warwick, Ricky Scaggs, Jimmy Buffet, Ray Charles, Gary Morris, Randy Travis, Little Richard and Chubby Checker for recording sessions. In addition, the studio’s advertising promotions began to expand on a national scale, producing over 5,000 commercials and jingles. Clients included Holiday Inn, GMC, Chevrolet, Disneyland, Goodyear, Tidy Cat, K-Mart, Buick and various local and regional accounts.


At this time Patrick began a relationship with the Walt Disney Company writing, producing and even performing music for their series of children’s albums, including “Mousercise,” “Rock Around the Mouse,” the successful 4-album “Children’s Favorites” set and “Mickey Mouse Disco.” They have earned him 30 + Platinum Awards and are still selling strongly today.

In 1983 Cal IV Music was in need of a larger studio space. In answer to this need Patrick purchased Ray Stevens former studio on Grand Central Avenue and fittingly named it Grand Central Studios. During this time he produced several popular Christian acts such as Bruce Carroll, Steve Green, First Call and Amy Grant. As productions increased so did Patrick’s grasp in the music industry and he extended his vision to include a publishing company, Grand Music Group.

As founder of Grand Music Group, which published Randy Travis’ breakthrough hit “1982,” Pat collaborated with top songwriters in Nashville. The publishing company was home to such hits as “What’s Going On In Your World” by George Strait, “High Cotton” by Alabama and “Out of Your Shoes” by Lorrie Morgan. His current publishing company, Patilison Tunes, is home for popular Nashville songwriters Angela Russell and Michael Foster. Patrick now splits his time between his duties as leader of the Pat Patrick Band, creative director of Pat Patrick Music and Pearl Trax Studios.

Patrick is a graduate of Montgomery Bell Academy and received a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Vanderbilt University. He is a member of NARAS, the Nashville Entertainment Association and the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce.
