High-energy & epic rock guitars are my specialty. Guitarist for heavy punk/metal band American Terror (feat. members of Skid Row & Sugar Ray), signed to Megadeth bassist David Ellefson’s EMP Label Group. I've tracked with producers Mike Clink & Rick Beato and performed internationally with American Idol/Voice artists.

Pat Valley is currently the guitarist for heavy punk/metal band American Terror (featuring members of Skid Row and Sugar Ray), signed to Megadeth bassist David Ellefson’s EMP Label Group. The band’s critically-acclaimed debut album, “Influencer”, quickly hit 350,000 streams and was followed up by a remix single featuring legendary rapper Sticky Fingaz (known for his group Onyx’s multi-platinum hit, “Slam”, and his feature on Eminem’s “The Marshall Mathers LP”, one of the best-selling albums of all time). Since he began working in the rock and pop worlds in 2005, Pat has toured and recorded stateside with original artists, performed internationally at events with various American Idol/The Voice singers and instrumentalists from some of classic rock's greatest bands (including Alice Cooper, Starship, Survivor, and The Romantics), played on songs used in various TV shows and movies, melted faces at shows for companies like Microsoft, Google, and Wells Fargo, and rocked with patients in children's hospitals. Toss in a femur-crushing tour van accident and recording with some of the rock world's top producers (including Mike Clink & Rick Beato), and you can start to see that his career has been anything but typical. Speaking of "anything but typical", in 2015, he released his debut solo project EP, a genre-hopping release featuring vocals from former Misfits frontman Michale Graves.

    Another amazing job by Pat! He’s an amazing guitarist and composer and always has other helpful tips and suggestions. So glad I found him. He always levels up my songs. Thanks so much Pat!!

  2. Review by Matthew C.

    This is the third track I've worked on with Pat. He really goes above and beyond in every aspect. His composition and playing are amazing and really help take my songs from a basic outline of lyrics and a rhythm track into songs I'm super proud of and can hardly believe I helped write. I always have a rough idea of what the solos and fills sound like in my head, but instead of being specific I just let him have full creative freedom, and on every song he added more than I imagined possible.

    This is the second time I've used Pat for Solos and fills on a song. He once again exceeded my expectations with his amazing playing and compositions. He also gave me some really helpful advice regarding the recording of my guitar tracks, what a mixing/mastering engineer would be looking for to get the best mix/master, and my overall production. I was smiling the whole time I listened to it the first time, with his tracks on it. Can't thank you enough Pat!

    Hit up Pat for a solo and fills to a rock/pop song I have. Not only did he give me two amazing solos and several fills that melted my brain, but he was also the nicest guy, and super easy to work with. Being new to writing and recording I had a fair amount of questions for him. Not only did he take the time to explain in depth how to not only get the best out of the tracks he made me, but also gave me some extremely useful tips on how to make the best out the recording as well. Thanks Pat!

    I simply enjoy working with Pat. He doesn't zap the joy out of the process and genuinely wants to help you reach your vision. He comes across as a great guy who cares about your project and works hard to achieve that according to your level.

    This is the second song Pat has re tracked the guitars for. Both projects have been different in style and genre from punk rock to heavy metal core type riffs. No problem for Pat what so ever.

    Pat did a tremendous job of re-tracking the guitars and added sugar and spice along the way. I highly recommend working with this gentleman. I felt at ease with Pat from the start.
    Communicating remotely, is an arduous task at the best of times, and you have to get everything 90% right before sending the tracks.
    You get two reviews if the session musician deems it acceptable. That is a lot of pressure on the artist.
    Pat took care of that, and and that is no easy feat.

    Pat has done so many projects for me in the studio and always done an amazing job. He works really hard to make sure you're happy and gives plenty of options. His sound quality is top notch also. He is always my go to guy!
