Active Child

Pat Grossi is a harpist.

Active child is actually Pat Grossi who lives in L.A. but he's a New Jersey Native. He is also a member of the Weight Room Band.

This project specifically inspired by his choir boy days. Before producing YOU ARE ALL I SEE back in August, he came out with the Curtis Lane EP.  Much of his music is made in his bedroom assisted by his laptop. His music has such a cinematic feel to it. It really is beautifully put together in all the sounds he impulses through each song.

“You Are All I See is an attempt to build a bridge between the listener and I, in that, I wrote these songs for you as much as I did for me. And right now when you are listening to my voice, by yourself, it really is just you and I.” In attempting to craft songs that meant something not only to himself but that could be meaningful to others as well, he found himself working with some universally human and fragile themes. “The songs focus primarily on the joy and heartbreak of relationships, love lost and rediscovered, battles with monogamy, battles with identity,” Pat says. “It came out much darker than I had intended, but sometimes you only have so much control.”

His sound is so wide-ranging that he has found himself touring with many notable acts of differing genres, including dubstep producer James Blake, dreamy synth-pop of School of Seven Bells, and the indie-rock bands White Lies and White Rabbits.

If you like Bon Iver or James Blake, you might enjoy Active Child.
