Pat Maine was born Southern Californian but grew up in a small mountain town in Northern Utah. (Yes, home of The Mormons, the late Ted Bundy and unicorns.) In the compounds of his geographic location he brewed a micro climate of an imagination. He put his money on the bars packed with syllables and the rhyme schemes to accent them all the way to the end where the concept ties it altogether. Then put his money on the fact that you are going to have to rewind that one part.
He has an alias, Kinnetik, but the only way to really describe him is "Pat Maine." Real name with no relations to Gucci Mane. Perfected his live craft in dive bars in front of confused blanks stares in Salt Lake City for 4 years prior to leaving on tour in 2009. He is complimented mostly on his word choice, live performance and his endurance to stay on the road 9 months out of the year.
Now in 2012 it's all mathematics. Time multiplied by work ethic equals over a dozen tours, South By Southwest, AC3 Festival, a tour w/ Abstract Rude, and an "MC Pigpen & Pat Maine" sticker slapped everywhere across America. All accomplished with no label behind him. Just help from his team and loyal supporters across the map.
Pat Maine's most recent release is a full length album collaborated with MC Pigpen entitled "The Last Year."
