Blues and soul meet with pop for an evening of skillful guitar and heartfelt melody on the top floor of a Nashville drugstore.
For fans of soulful pop, Layman Drug Company brings you a 3-song set from Patrick Droney. Droney has a raw, exposed blues style akin to the latest John Mayer (think Paradise Valley and The Search for Everything). His mastery of songwriting feels freshly dynamic, but holds tight to classic characteristics — a combo that can’t be beat.

1Burning By The Minute (4:41)
The most upbeat song of the set. Silky guitar lines fall in with a rhythm section that is so in-the-pocket you wonder if there’s even room for that giant iPhone 8 Plus.
2High Hope (5:21)
Droney reduces the band to a trio by cutting drums and bass. He supplements this loss with a dose of emotion.
“A song that lacks a rhythm section is not lacking in groove.” – Anonymous (no one).
3Everything Burns (4:43)
The stripped down song in the set where you realize how fantastic and purely talented these musicians are.
