Patrick Lehman is a Yamaha recording artist, songwriter and producer from Montreal. His most recent album “Butchy’s Son” was released in Canada with Pheromone/Universal and was nominated for a Juno award for ‘Best Soul/R&B Recording of the Year’ category alongside the Weeknd and Alesia Cara. The album received critical acclaim and the first single “Games” received rave reviews from Exclaim magazine and CBC Music. The album entered the top 40 charts in Quebec and Patrick was a featured performer at Junofest that year and performed live on Canada AM during Canadian Music Week in Toronto.
Trained in classical voice at Vanier college and jazz at Concordia University, he was asked, while still at school, to perform at the Montreal International Jazz Festival's 2006 Big Event, a Paul Simon Tribute, featuring Daniel Lanois, Sam Roberts & Elvis Costello. The live concert drew 150,000 people to the streets of Montreal and was subsequently broadcast on Bravo, ArTV and CBC television.
The single “Come Together” off of Lehman’s third full-length album, “The Electric Soul Kitchen Vol. 2” quickly hit the national top 40 rock radio charts in 2013.
Along with producing & writing his own music, Patrick has produced music for New York city fashion week (Elizabeth Kosich runway show) and has also written and produced for other Canadian artists. Writing two original songs for Quebecois artist Melissa Bedard (M'entend tu, Star Academie) for her holiday album in 2017, the album quickly went to #1 on iTunes across the country.
In 2013, Patrick embarked on his first European tour, performing in Stuttgart, Germany, Amstersdam, Netherlands and London, England. He returned in the summer of 2014 to the Netherlands to perform once again at the Zwarte Cross Festival, Songbird Festival and the Bix Jazz Club, as well as live radio interviews and performances on Radio 1 and Radio 6 national radio in Netherlands.
He was featured in International Musician magazine, Urban Expressions and Jazzism magazine in the Netherlands. European glossy magazine 'Linda' called him a "Top 5 to download" artist alongside Raul Midon and David Bowie, and CBC Music has named him“Canada’s best kept soul secret”.
Patrick Lehman won the first prize in the 2015 Unsigned Only song writing competition (Adult Contemporary category). The panel of judges included The Killers, Kelly Price, Sinead O’Connor and Aimee Mann.
Most recently, Patrick performed live at the Omnia at Ceasar's Palace in Las Vegas and his song "Long Road" was featured in the second season on the hit Showtime series "Smilf".
