January 28, 2007 - Patricia Conroy Releases New Album

Everyone's talking about Patricia Conroy's newly released CD “Talking To Myself”. Her first album in six years marks a new chapter for the accomplished artist. Known for number one hits such as Bad Day for Trains and Keep Me Rockin’, the Canadian star wrote or co-wrote all 11 tracks of what insiders claim to be a milestone in her already impressive career.

“I went out on a limb with some of these songs,” admits Conroy.

Strong songwriting is evident throughout the CD which explores many emotional themes – from infatuation in Everything You Do to maturation in Wild Card to a gutsy determination such as the resilience displayed in Save Your Breath. Conroy says the songs were birthed from a lot of introspection, especially the title track.

“Talking to Myself” speaks about the struggles to reach elusive goals and the futility of those efforts at times.

“Patricia Conroy’s new single Talking To Myself hit me right away. It’s a very emotional song and I think many listeners will relate to it,” commented CMT Music Director, Dayna Bourgoin.

The rest of the tracks reveal the steely resolve of women as they face heartache and trials. Despite moments of despair and questioning, the women Conroy sings about, find their inner strength eventually.

“I didn’t write these songs as anthems,” commented Conroy. “I was simply expressing what I was going through. From the strong response to the songs, I must have touched an emotional nerve.”

Jill Snell, Managing Director of Conroy's new label – Angeline - would agree with that statement: “I got involved with Patricia because I felt that it was important to draw attention to this song (Talking To Myself) and to Patricia’s new album of the same title. It has some pretty remarkable songs in its depths, with Talking To Myself being the most raw, most honest. It describes with bleak candor and earnestness, her state of mind while writing a song about the hopelessness and helplessness one can experience when they feel no one is listening. This album is a great body of work and the people working with Patricia want to help to give it wings.”

From an early age, Conroy has felt music’s power to connect people and move them emotionally. Born in multicultural Montreal, Patricia was raised in an environment influenced by the French culture, her father’s strong Irish roots, and her mother’s love of country music. She speaks fondly of the songs that flowed through her home as a little girl, which ultimately led to the pursuit of a music career years later.

With eight #1 singles and five #1 videos, that career has proven to be very fruitful. Recently Conroy added yet another award to her already large collection at this year’s Canadian Country Music Awards for the prestigious “Independent Female Artist” of the year title.

“Talking to Myself” was produced by Conroy’s husband Bob Funk and co-produced by Kevin Churko of Shania Twain and The Corrs fame. It’s an innovative album with a fresh sound and an emotional depth fans will find hard to resist.

The recently released single and video for “Talking to Myself” hit the airwaves in Canada in October with welcoming arms and is now being embraced by AC radio as well – a new realm for Conroy.

The official release date for the album is January 30, 2007 on Angeline Entertainment, distributed by Fontana North (a subsidiary of Universal Music Canada).
