Patrick Dethlefs on Fall + Rise: "I feel like, with the new album, I just got better at writing songs"

Patrick Dethlefs (due Friday, June 8, at Swallow Hill's Daniels Hall) has been building his name as a songwriter of note for the last few years. His debut album Stays the Same is credited to "Patrick Dethlefs & Friends," which is a testament to Dethlefs's unassuming persona and humility, not only with his own songwriting, but in relation to his friends and colleagues that have helped along the way.
