Abe Partridge discovered music when he first heard Nirvana’s Nevermind. His life would take a few interesting turns before he would begin sharing his music and art. Abe’s life has varied from several years as a preacher to serving with the US Air Force. These experiences and a personal awakening have forever changed his life path and driven him to create art and music. He says he writes songs and paints for himself, because his work is a very personal reflection of life and who he is. However, Abe confesses he started creating music and art to bring beauty into the world. This was intended to counter parts of his life he views as hate filled and violent.
His life journey is fascinating and his success story inspiring. Abe is both humble and charming, but his songs and art can at times be haunting. Hear his song Colors from his latest album Cotton Fields and Blood for Days at the end of this episode.
