Chicago Loves Pat Sansone...I'm very honored to have Pat Sansone of The Autumn Defense and Wilco as a part of "Chicago, I love you..." on September 2. Pat is one of the rare artists that despite his fame or global recognition -- he remains a humble man who is always willing to give advice, play a song, DJ locally, or show his photography to hang. In 2010, Pat released 100 Polaroids, a self published collection of photos that were taken over a 4 year span of touring the world. Overall Pat is what the modern artist should be - a genre-less artists who has worked with many artists such as Beck, Mavis Staples, Ryan Adams, Andrew Bird, Joseph Arthur and local Chicago band The Deserters. Here are a few videos from two of his projects, along with a great interview from his solo performance at Sundance.
