Patrick Hanlin is a composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist living and working out of Boston, Mass.

Pat’s toured internationally as a Vic Firth-endorsed drummer and multi-instrumentalist, both with his band Dead Messengers and for artists like Billy Gilman (2nd Place on 2016’s The Voice) and Lenny Lashley (Darkbuster). Pat's played many nifty shows like SXSW, Mile High Stadium, Wolftrap Theatre, The Gorge Ampitheatre, Dunkin Donuts Arena, Austin City Limits and opened for bands like Dropkick Murpheys, The Roots, Dillinger Escape Plan, Dave Matthews, Hall & Oates, Frank Turner, and Jack Johnson. 


As a composer and producer, Pat's worked with incredible organizations like Barack Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper, the NBA and MLB, Northeastern U, and the Life is Good Company and won awards like the International Songwriting Competition, American Songwriting Awards and an impressive three Grand Prize wins in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest. Dozens of his recordings have charted on Sirius XM.

You may or may not find Pat listening to Bob Dylan, Tame Impala, Chance the Rapper, Every Time I Die, Daphne et Chloe, Tom Waits (mostly the old stuff these days), STP, and Aretha Franklin all in the same day. He blames it on his ADHD.


Pat Hanlin’s many talents are surpassed only by the joy that emanates from him all day - every day. Pat exceeds all expectations, and he does so with a hearty laugh and a comforting smile. I love him.

Patrick Hanlin is a gifted swiss-army-knife multi instrumentalist and producer with a vast musical base. Patrick’s keen listening skills and deep technical expertise make his playing, composing, and production a perfect complimentary voice to any project. Check out his baskets.
— James Zaner, Grammy-Nominated Mixer/Producer
Working with Pat and Revival is amazing. The time that is put in and energy and talent that is given back is truly on another level.
— Billy Gilman, Multi-Platinum Recording Artist
Somehow without being pushy or controlling he really finds a way to make you perform at your best, and all the while laughing and keeping a positive vibe ever present. Sometimes it seems he knows what I’m capable of more than I do.
— Ryan Beke, Singer/Songwriter and Touring Musician
