Patrice O'Neill is known throughout the Pacific Northwest for her beautiful voice and personal songwriting style, as well as her work with the popular group Mel Cooleys. Her wonderfully expressive vocals are featured on her debut solo release, Elusive, which offers original songs that present an extraordinary view of an artist at the peak of her craft. Victory Music Review has praised her "...expressive, yet delicate phrasing"; Dan Roberts wrote about "...a voice so pure and sweet that it could melt rock..."; and Pandemonium reviewer Laura Horton said "Patrice's voice is that of an angel - ; it defines beauty, and demands your attention." Patrice is also an amazing artist; all of the artwork you see on the web site, the disc packaging, and the accompanying songbook, are Patrice O'Neill originals!

For sixteen years, Patrice has been Director of the award winning Wintergrass festival which takes place in Bellevue the last full weekend of February annually.
