"Dearest Nettie and Patrick, Our heartfelt thanks for making a dream come true. You made our hearts sing. The music in the garden for our Golden Anniversary was a wonderful memory that will stay with us over the coming years. With Thanks."
Clare and Barry Draper (50th Wedding Anniversary, Feb 2016)

"Nettie and Patrick, Organic Sound... fabulous stuff" ('When Music Speaks' Album)
David O'Brien, 98.9 North West FM
"I first heard Nettie and Patrick (Organic Sound) at Forest Hill Chase shopping centre...Mum and I were completely enthralled at their wonderful sound...beautiful, soulful and haunting music from their flute and the keyboard....gradually introducing some light and cheerful jazz numbers to add a little gaiety. I consequently invited them to play at our “Open Garden” Event’s ten year anniversary in April 2018. Our visitors were also mesmerised by their haunting music drifting through the garden.... we invited Nettie and Patrick to come back in October to end our year of celebrations...they were a triumph...a beautiful young couple who should go on delighting people for years to come......I wish them every success xx"
Madeleine Willingham, 2018
"I asked Patrick to prepare a concert of 12 preludes that I had written for piano. There was not a huge amount of time for Patrick to prepare the music, but he met that challenge easily. The music was quite complex at points, but required sensitivity as well. I was very happy with his performance, to say the least. When a person is playing original music one never knows what the result will be. Patrick played with strength and a great amount of passion. There was no sense that this was a 'wooden' performance. It was a pleasure to entrust some original compositions to his interpretation."
Rev. Andrew Tasker, St Stephen's Anglican Church, Brighton.
"I first discovered Organic Sound when they were performing in 2016. My mother was in respite and it was a challenging time for us both. I listened to the music of Organic Sound and was immediately taken to another world of peace and serenity. After that first musical discovery, I made it my business to follow them to wherever they were playing – their music certainly does speak to me and brings me great joy. Nettie and Patrick are extremely talented musicians who I now feel privileged to also call good friends."
"It was great having Organic Sound at our Greensquare Apartment Autumn Festival. Their music enhanced the atmosphere of our event and created a welcoming relaxed vibe for us all to enjoy. They were the real highlight of the day. Thanks guys!"

"It is with pleasure we recommend Patrick as an accomplished pianist and perfect addition to any event where a professional musician is required. Our search for a pianist suitable to perform at our wedding ended when we met Patrick and heard him play. Not only is he someone you would be proud to have attend such a personal event, but he is a highly professional and talented musician. Patrick went beyond expectations – learning particular songs that were meaningful to us and proved to be a most memorable addition to our special occasion. Patrick interacted beautifully with our guests, was incredibly intuitive to our needs during the evening and was the recipient of much praise from all. This recommendation can not come highly enough. We are indebted to you Patrick. Thank you."

“Organic Sound Duo, Nettie and Patrick, are our all-time favourite performers. We have them in on a monthly basis and we all look forward to them. Some residents who don't participate in the group activities always come out to enjoy these gorgeous musicians. They go out of their way to make every performance a bit different, playing a new variety of songs and often they work to a theme and will dress up to suit the theme. They encourage participation and chat to the residents between songs, often giving a little bit of trivia about the song, the original composer or what classic movie it came from. Organic Sound Duo, Nettie and Patrick, are delightful and we would highly recommend them to any one as professional, top class performers.”

"It’s a pleasure to provide you with this testimonial for Nettie, Patrick and their work together at our wedding as Organic Sound Piano and Flute Duo.
From our first meeting together, when Organic Sound came to visit us, see the venue and test our special piano, we were impressed with their professionalism and desire to make our day special. When they played for us that day, we were very moved by their amazing talent. We knew we had found the perfect musicians for us.
We wanted to have an intimate event which is why we had our wedding ceremony and reception at home. That meant our musicians were going to be centrally positioned to everything that was going on and sensitive to this. We wanted a few special tunes and Nettie and Patrick said they’d learn them for us. They did, and played them as if they’d played them forever.
They arrived in plenty of time to set up and both looked stunning. The way they blended into everything was incredible. Unobtrusive but so very present, intuitive and ready for whatever came next!
Having come from a musical family, I feel qualified to say that they are both extraordinarily talented musicians and delightful people. We feel very fortunate to have been referred to Nettie and Patrick and they will always be our first choice for any event!
We are delighted to recommend Organic Sound to anyone who needs a professional, super talented and elegant flute and piano duo, with an extraordinarily extensive repertoire.
Thank you for making our day so special."
