Baby Comes Home is the extraordinary debut album by 22 year old Patrick Cleandenim. Combining a love of classic songcraft with a mountain of charisma, Cleandenim is just at the start of a highly promising career.  After playing with Kansas favorites Clockwork, Patrick began performing under his own name with help from his brother Andrew and Clockwork drummer Jim Pillar. Shows opening for bands like The Decemberists and John Vanderslice followed until Patrick moved to New York to attend the prestigious Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Arts.  Two years later, in December of 2005, Patrick returned to Lawrence to record Baby Comes Home. Booking an armful of sessions at Black Lodge Recording Studio (co-owned by local heroes the Get Up Kids) and with a killer rhythm section in tow, Patrick expanded the band to orchestra size by enlisting the help and goodwill of music students from University of Kansas to serve as string and horn sections. The sessions took place in the graveyard slot of 12.00 - 4.00 am. On the last day of recording, Patrick turned 21.  Baby Comes Home inhabits a lush world of its own. From the opening drum beat crack of "Baby Comes Home" to the dying seconds of "Hollywood," there's a sense of identity to the album that's rarely achieved these days, like a great novel or film rather than just a collection of songs. While prime time Scott Walker may be an initial point of comparison, Baby Comes Home also features a strong jazz influence on many of its tracks alongside the footprints of Phil Spector, Elvis Presley, David Axelrod and a Tin Pan Alley approach to classic pop song structures.  The next step for Patrick is to bring the album to life on stage, which will be accomplished this summer.
