Patrick R. Stevenson is a legendary bassist who has played with a wide variety of bands and on many studio projects. He has played and lived in LA and Nashville, but has returned to his roots and currently lives in Wildwood, MO.

His strong vocals, melodic playing style and perfect pocket grooves cement the creative changes, twists and turns of OPEN>Sunday tunes.
Pat is an avid bass collector and owns an extensive arsenal of instruments, so that on any given night you may see a different rare and beautiful bass in his hands.
His major musical influences are John Entwistle, Phil Lesh, Jack Bruce, Chris Squire, Stanley Clarke and Leland Sklar.

Pat says 'As a drummer and bass player, I believe that the feel and groove of the song in a project like OPEN>Sunday is the most important thing'.
He continues, 'When there are as many instruments and voices as we have in OPEN>Sunday, the simpler each part can be, the better for the overall sound'.
He concludes, 'The spaces between the notes become critical'.

He is a founding and current member of 'The Wildhorse Creek Band'. They are a 3- piece acoustic / Americana project with soaring 3-part harmonies and solid songwriting. They play often throughout the St. Louis area and have penned a number of original tunes including 'Me & Miguel' which is covered by OPEN>Sunday.
