"The powers that be can control the media (but) it's hard to stop a good song.Pat's songs will be sung well into the 22nd century." - Pete Seeger (on NPR's All Things Considered)

Pat Humphries, called the "true spirit-child of Woody Guthrie," performs with her partner, Sandy Opatow, whose singing has been described as "spellbinding." Pat's acclaimed anthems, "Keep on Moving Forward (Never Turning Back)," and "Common Threat" are sung at peace and justice events around the world and have been translated into 7 languages. The duo's recording of Pat's "Swimming to the Other Side" created an underground "folk anthem" that was everywhere, despite its having no commercial airplay and no major label, or even moderate-sized indie label support. In response to a live interview on NPR's All Things Considered featuring this story, the duo's CD "Hands" became the #1 seller on for three days - outselling every other rock and pop artist. Sandy and Pat's "If I Give Your Name" is the 2002 Grand Prize Winner in the Folk Category of the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Contest.
