Patou swings with kings and untouchables alike. With a career that spans over four decades and right across the globe, Pat Powell (Patou) is one of Australia’s most accomplished vocal talents. He is the artist that everyone wants to work with.
Hailing from the close-knit and highly musical Jamaican community of 1970s Bristol, Patou toured extensively throughout Europe before descending on Sydney with great force in the 80s. Filling bars and clubs across Australia with his pioneering acts Caribbe, Club Ska, Lovetown, Ten Wedge and Neptune St, within a couple of years he was one of Australia’s most demanded studio vocalists.
Patou has supported James Brown, Queen, Eurhythmics, Boy George, Crowded House, Horace Andy and Luciano, Tina Arena and George Benson. He has toured extensively throughout Australia, Asia & Europe as Kylie Minogue’s primary backing vocalist and in his own right, Patou has recorded over 15 singles, four albums, and acted in myriad of classic Australian films.
