For more than a decade in Jackson Hole, Patrick Chadwick has crooned introspective lyrics that deftly reflect their environment, whether it is a mountain vista, civil unrest or a dissolving personal relationship.

The singer-songwriter and guitarist’s latest outlet is performing as frontman of the folk-rock band Inland Isle, whose debut 2021 album “Time Has Changed Us” was lauded for its “rich heartland rock, folk harmonies and anthemic vocal hooks” by Under the Radar magazine.

With Inland Isle, Chadwick’s songs are given life with four-part vocal harmonies and well-crafted accompaniment from fellow longtime Jackson musicians on electric guitar, bass and drums. Glide Magazine called the music a “big Laurel Canyon sound” while Atwood Magazine praised it as “charming and evocative, intimate and energizing.”

Originally from the Boston area, Chadwick was surprised after leaving that cultural hub to find Jackson Hole brimming with talented musicians who were supported by the community and uniquely influenced by the area's natural beauty. Before long, he had new songs and a folk-bluegrass group called The Flannel Attractions, which attracted a passionate following and a spot on Paste Magazine's "Nine Wyoming Bands You Should Listen to Now."

After The Flannel Attractions disbanded in 2014, Chadwick looked to expand beyond the bluegrass realm by tapping a broader portion of the local musical talent.

In 2016, Chadwick released his Americana-tinged "Soul of Mine" EP, recorded with a number of Jackson Hole musicians at community-driven spaces like Teton Artlab and Henhouse Studio. That same year, he released a collaboration with Jackson native and University of Wyoming graduate Victor Pokorny (Pat + Victor's "Stay! Positive!" EP), which twisted the conventions of folk songwriting with offbeat lyrics and counterintuitive instrument pairings.

Chadwick’s latest single with Inland Isle, “Year’s Divide,” was released in April 2023 as part of The WyoFolk Project, a compilation album from 14 celebrated Wyoming songwriters recorded at Three Hearted Recording.
