She tours on the local, national, and international music scene, playing acoustic music peppered with rhythm and spice, simmered with the flavors of folk, jazz, R&B, and rock, and served piping hot. Her eclectic mix of musical magic and engaging stage presence creates an unforgettable type of performance that is passionate, insightful, and full of attitude.

She has released three CDs: “Packing My Bags – Patti D Live” (2011), “Secrets and Stories" (2007), and “Paradise” (2005).
