LA rock n' roll troubadour Patrick Duniven and his band (who collectively are known as [mp3com-artist]Duniven[/mp3com-artist]) plays the kind of rich, Americana style music that is reminiscent of many great American rock heroes. Listening to a track like "Passage to Nowhere," it's easy to hear traces of Dylan, Petty and Springsteen. [mp3com-artist]Duniven[/mp3com-artist] skillfully avoids repetitive terriotory though, instead continuing the tradition with his own take on the genre. [mp3com-download url="duniven.mp3" artist="Duniven" song="Passage to Nowhere" email="none"/] While much of [mp3com-artist]Duniven[/mp3com-artist]'s musical inspiration comes from the past of rock music, inspiration for his songs comes from his own past. While recovering from a major surgery in 2010 Duniven found inspiration reflecting on a particular figure in his history. “Recovering from that surgery was one of the most traumatic experiences of my life, "he said, "And I considered giving up music altogether in the process.  “During my recovery I began thinking of someone from the past and I started to get very inspired.  I couldn’t sing but I could write so I started documenting all of my thoughts and feelings for this person which eventually became the lyrics to my songs”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZL3fpfUzG98
