Song of the Week: Patrick Droney, ‘Game of Love’
By Brittney McKenna
For being only 23 years old, Patrick Droney has done a lot in his young life. From playing with B.B. King to working with Glen Ballard, Droney has accomplished more than many musicians do in a lifetime. Now, the Los Angeles artist is in the studio working on an as-yet-untitled EP of solo material with Sean Hurley, a producer and bass player who has worked with the likes of John Mayer, Annie Lennox, and Alicia Keys. He’s also spent some time in Nashville working on a handful of co-writes that are sure to please.
We’re excited to premiere one of those new tunes, the guitar-driven, soulful pop jam “Game of Love.”
“’Game of Love’ was inspired by a story and a groove,” Droney says. “At a certain point in your life, you start to take stock of what you think you need or what you think you should be doing. However, sometimes in that process, you forget that the most important thing is the person right next to you. Love has no timeline or schedule — this is kind of a self-realization of that. Musically, I’m proud to be able to share the story with my guitar as it echoes the sentiments of my voice. That’s how it goes, though — in my most trying moments, the strings have always had my back.”
