Pink debuted at No.1 on the Aria Charts and is a very special album to Patrick as it’s a charity album for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

This album features many of the Beatles classic songs reimagined on the Violin. Songs such as Hey Jude, Let it Be and While My Guitar Gently Weeps just to name a few. Included on the album is a very special version of ‘Saltwater’ featuring Julian Lennon & Tommy Emmanuel. This track was re recorded by Julian, Tommy and Patrick and produced by Nuno Bettencourt especially for this album to renew awareness & inspire action surrounding environmental issues, in the spirit of the original recording.
‘Imagine’ was mastered at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in London by the amazing Andy Walter who mastered the original Beatles Anthology Edition giving the last sprinkles of magic to an already impressive album.
20% of the proceeds of all album sales will be going to the Sony Foundation to help improve young Australians who are effected by severe illness, disability and homelessness. A donation to the White Feather Foundation (Julian Lennon’s Foundation) will also be made from sales of this album to reflect Julian’s incredible work for the conservation of life.
