Patrick Matera Recording New Solo Record


Patrick Matera might be well known at Katy Perry’s guitarist, but he’s also been hard at work on a new solo record.

And to complete it, Matera launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise a final $10,000 with rewards that include a digital download of the album to the opportunity to have the artist play a private 45-minute set at a fan’s home.

“I’ve been playing guitar with Katy Perry since the 2008 Warped Tour,” he wrote on his Kickstarter page. “When we had a little time off last summer, I began working on this solo record, writing songs and recording demos. It’s pop music, I’d say… electronic/guitar/vibey singer/songwriter stuff. I’ll be singing, playing guitar and keyboards on it and just need a little help from my friends to finish it and get it out there to you. I’m raising funds so I can pay all the musicians, studio owners, engineers, mixers, etc., that I need to help complete the project.”
