High-energy & epic rock guitars are my specialty. Guitarist for heavy punk/metal band American Terror (feat. members of Skid Row & Sugar Ray), signed to Megadeth bassist David Ellefson’s EMP Label Group. I've tracked with producers Mike Clink & Rick Beato and performed internationally with American Idol/Voice artists.
Pat Valley is currently the guitarist for heavy punk/metal band American Terror (featuring members of Skid Row and Sugar Ray), signed to Megadeth bassist David Ellefson’s EMP Label Group. The band’s critically-acclaimed debut album, “Influencer”, quickly hit 350,000 streams and was followed up by a remix single featuring legendary rapper Sticky Fingaz (known for his group Onyx’s multi-platinum hit, “Slam”, and his feature on Eminem’s “The Marshall Mathers LP”, one of the best-selling albums of all time). Since he began working in the rock and pop worlds in 2005, Pat has toured and recorded stateside with original artists, performed internationally at events with various American Idol/The Voice singers and instrumentalists from some of classic rock's greatest bands (including Alice Cooper, Starship, Survivor, and The Romantics), played on songs used in various TV shows and movies, melted faces at shows for companies like Microsoft, Google, and Wells Fargo, and rocked with patients in children's hospitals. Toss in a femur-crushing tour van accident and recording with some of the rock world's top producers (including Mike Clink & Rick Beato), and you can start to see that his career has been anything but typical. Speaking of "anything but typical", in 2015, he released his debut solo project EP, a genre-hopping release featuring vocals from former Misfits frontman Michale Graves.

Pat did a tremendous job of re-tracking the guitars and added sugar and spice along the way. I highly recommend working with this gentleman. I felt at ease with Pat from the start.
Communicating remotely, is an arduous task at the best of times, and you have to get everything 90% right before sending the tracks.
You get two reviews if the session musician deems it acceptable. That is a lot of pressure on the artist.
Pat took care of that, and and that is no easy feat.
Pat has done so many projects for me in the studio and always done an amazing job. He works really hard to make sure you're happy and gives plenty of options. His sound quality is top notch also. He is always my go to guy!
