Josef Patchen, piano/keyboards, composer

Patchen began work writing and arranging popular music while at Eastman and received a job offer as house arranger at Studio South in Augusta. He worked on a wide variety of music projects and styles while there. In 1991 he began work scoring original video for large corporate clients through Edge Media in Aiken, South Carolina. His work has won regional and national awards. Throughout his composition and production work, he has maintained his performance skills in jazz, pop, and classical music and is heard in the Augusta area on a regular basis. He currently teaches at Portman’s Music Academy.

Though fluent in many modern styles, Patchen is most at home providing tuneful, well-known music from the classical era through the first half of the twentieth century – Gershwin, Arlen, Kern, Mercer, Carmichael, Cole Porter – in short, the golden age of American song – to provide a sophisticated atmosphere.
