"Esmé Patterson is songwriter, gambler, singer, lover, thinker and explorer. She began as a member of the Denver Folk Pop septet, Paper Bird, and has written two records as a solo act including "All Princes, I" and her second and most recent release, "Woman to Woman", which is a concept album of responses from female characters in a broad range of well known love songs. The Guardian called it "defiant and witty", the New York Times found her voice "wiry and candid" with songs that "hint at mystery and mortality". Audiotree touts "By putting herself in the minds of characters like Jolene, Eleanor Rigby, and Billie Jean, Patterson has crafted a witty, dark, and intimate twist on the popular tracks." Esmé performs in multiple incarnations. She adds members to raise the volume and cadence of her tunes but remains powerful alone. Patterson is a magnetic performer and has appeared on the Leno, Conan and Letterman programs. Her co-writing with Shakey Graves led to sold out shows nationwide and millions of downloads of their collaborations. Esmé lives in Portland, Oregon, happily small under tall trees." -Artist Bio

About Fremont Abbey Arts Center



Mission Statement

Our mission is to curate vibrant & welcoming spaces where people of all ages and incomes can grow in their artistic & social development through arts & cultural experiences. Abbey Arts focuses on music, dance, visual, literary and culinary arts in formats including multi-arts performances, group classes & workshops, individual lessons, new exhibits, community gatherings, and artistic life celebrations.


We are a nonprofit arts organization presenting and curating creative events at unusual spaces around Seattle and at our home venue, Fremont Abbey Arts Center. We create experiences where people can learn & develop through education & performance in many different art mediums. Striving to be acommunity driven, volunteer powered organization in North Seattle, the Abbey is a comfortable & welcoming space where a wide variety of people from different income levels, skills, ethnicities & backgrounds interact. Both art students & the general public experience high quality performances by artists from Seattle and around the world. Abbey Arts programs are non-religious.

Built in 1914 the Fremont Abbey is a beautiful old brick church building (originally St Paul’s Lutheran) that went from being vacant in the late 90s, to being a temporary shelter, and then undergoing major renovations in late 2007. Major work culminated March 2008 with a Grand Re-opening party and ongoing improvements do continue each year. Abbey Arts Director, Nathan Marion (, managed the renovation & "greening of the Abbey" project including final designs & interiors.
