PATRICIA BAHIA (pronounced Bah-HEE-yah) is an indie pop singer-songwriter and cancer survivor, reborn as the musical lovechild of Paul McCartney and Joni Mitchell. Armed with a voice as smooth as polished stone that’s been through the rock tumbler of life, and an arsenal of frank, sparkling indie pop tunes in the vein of Aimee Mann, Ingrid Michaelson and Sara Bareilles, she lives her bucket list & inspires others to do the same.
  
Patricia's new full-length CD, Save Your Heart, will be released on October 23, 2015.
