Based in Colorado, just like PME Records, Craig Patterson has been at the helm of PME Records since its inception in 1990. He has been a professional audio engineer since his first paying studio gig at the age of eleven, making his music career almost fifty years long.
By the time he studied engineering under Bill Porter (Elvis Presley's engineer), he already had a decade of analog tape experience, giving him a big head start. A couple of decades after were spent on the road with various groups, playing keyboards and running FOH sound as opportunities in every genre came up, until finally the studio would keep him home most of the year.
Some of the hundreds of artists Craig has worked with include:
The Guess Who
Jo Dee Messina
President Bill Clinton
The Trip Toys
Singing Youth of Denver
Sugarloaf Mountain String Band
The Dean Bushnell Orchestra
The Velveeta Sisters
Left String Hand Band
CMT (Country Music Television)
Has directed and/or edited over fifty music videos
Top Ten Producer (FMQB charts, 2007)
Award-winning composer (various)
Award-winning photographer (various)
Award-winning actor (Best Actor, SACCA Awards, 1978), he has directed and acted in films that have grossed a quarter of a billion dollars, 100% of which is because of his role in the Farrelly Brothers' Dumb and Dumber. See his IMDB page for details.
Craig is also an established voiceover artist, having completed over 1600 audio projects, from novels to podcasts to apps.
