Patrick Sweany (born April 1974) is a blues-rock musician from Massillon, Ohio.
Patrick Sweany first gained prominence in the late 1990s as an acoustic blues guitarist and singer at many Blues Festivals around the U.S. His first CD I Wanna Tell You was released in 1999 and drew critical acclaim from prominent musicians such as Roy Book Binder and Jimmy Thackery. In 2001, Sweany formed an electric trio called simply The Patrick Sweany Band. The band included drummer Clint Alguire, and has featured a revolving cast of baritone guitarists, including Dan Auerbach from The Black Keys, Ted Pecchio of Col. Bruce Hampton's The Codetalkers, Bob Basone and Jon Finley. Similarly, Sweany has used many drummers, including Nick Fritsch, Brad Porter, Jon Radford, Jimmy Lester and Adam Abrashoff. The omission of a bass player was Sweany's attempt to model the sound of the band after Hound Dog Taylor's HouseRockers.
In 2006, Sweany signed with Nine Mile Records to release C'Mon C'Mere. The CD was co-produced by Dan Auerbach and Jimbo Mathus from Squirrel Nut Zippers and incorporated country music, soul music and 50s era rock and roll into his already potent electric blues stylings.
