Patrick Krief is a multi-instrumentalist/songwriter. Guitarist for The Dears, Patrick has recently released an EP of his own music, Take It Or Leave. A new licensing deal with Sunny Lane Records has seen a re release on August 28th 2007. The EP was tracked and mixed in 6 days, and Patrick performed all the instruments as well as produced the album. The record features mixes by Clement Goulet, Murray A. Lightburn and Patrick Krief, it was mastered by Ryan Morey. It has a distinct sound of its own, and is very little like his work with The Dears.
