“The Tom Petty of folk!" - Bruce A. Newman, Austin Songwriter

Berkalin Records is proud to announce the summer 2019 European Release of Jim Patton and Sherry Brokus‘s “Collection: 2008-2018”, compiled from the folk-rock duo’s four acoustic CDs.

Jim Patton & Sherry Brokus have sung together for 40 years. They led the folk rock band Edge City from Baltimore to Austin where they recorded with Lloyd Maines, the guru of Texas record producers. In 2006, a supporter in Atlanta asked which of the four CDs on the merchandise table sounded most like what he had heard that night. And there were none. They had played as a duo and all their recordings were with bands.

They released “Plans Gang Aft Agley,” an all acoustic CD, in 2008 as “Jim Patton & Sherry Brokus”, and it broke into the top 30 on the Folk charts. Their next CD, “Ray of Hope” another acoustic CD, made the top 100 on the Americana charts. They made 2 more acoustic albums in the next decade, and “The Great Unknown” was named one of the Top 100 CDs of the Year by legendary music critic Geoffrey Himes in Paste Magazine.
