Originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Patrick Dal Cin is an up and coming music artist, producer, multi-instrumentalist and audio production professional. In his music, he blends a love of cinematic soundscapes with indie rock hooks, nodding influences to Steven Wilson, Rush, Death Cab For Cutie, Radiohead and Minus the Bear. He is currently songwriting, producing and playing bass guitar with KNKM and Five Oceans. Splitting time with his music career, he also works in the Canadian film industry as an accomplished boom operator.
From an early age, Pat has been surrounded by music through his family of music teachers. Initially a violinist and then a drummer, he found his prime tool of musical expression through the bass guitar. After many years of performing, he pursued a degree in Popular Music and Film at Western University. He also has a post-graduate certificate in Audio Post-Production from Fanshawe College.
Over the span of his career, Pat has shared the stage with notable acts such as The Arkells, Mother Mother, Hollerado, and The Born Ruffians. He has also performed and recorded with record label signed acts, produced an iTunes charting EP, and played many highly attended shows such as Festival D'Été de Québec and Trackside Music Festival. In his film career, Pat has worked in the sound department on many feature films that have made international debuts at prominent festivals such as Cannes, TIFF and Fantastic Fest.
Pat is currently mixing material with KNKM for future release. He is looking to expand his music, film and video game network and is accepting inquiries for creative projects. Please visit the Contact/Rates page for details on how to work with Pat for your specific project needs.
