COVID-19 closures have affected businesses we all depend on, making it tough for Oil City residents to make ends meet. Perhaps no one has felt this more than our local musicians, many of whom earn their livings playing gigs at the bars, restaurants and other venues that have been closed for several weeks. We miss them…and they miss us.

All this month, Oil City News is rolling out a series of tiny COVID concerts*, one-song sets from local artists who aim to lift our readers’ spirits while also sharing their gifts with the community they love.

Today’s show features Patrick W. Stafford, local troubadour and first responder. Pat’s sharing an ALL NEW song with us today! His last single, “As Long As You Stay Gone” was #1 for four weeks on the KB Country charts. He’s also nominated for four International Singer Songwriter Association awards including USA Male Rising Star.

If you like what you hear, be sure to show Pat some love on PayPal ( or hit up his website. Or, best of all, be sure to click here to vote for Pat in the ISSA Awards!
