Marc Patch

Welcome to

I am best known for being a guitarist & band leader and also have spent many years as a music director, drummer, bassist, songwriter, audio engineer, tech, artist, & mentor.

I am also known for my one-man-band recordings and backing up singers such as; Kathy Banta, Jules Day, Tricia Eisen, Robi Messerich, & Krista Sasse. and playing in bands: Heavens Thunder, Twice Born, & Innocent Charm. I am from Minneapolis, MN and have lived all over the country as well. Currently I am based in Lake Mills, IA and am authoring my eighth book. I am, most importantly, a Christian and a family man. I have been married over a decade to my lovely wife Carrie and together we have a daughter Annabelle.
