about

2028
"Described by the artist as wine country music, the final song of the Like Family project – Robert Mondavi – is a raw and organic, live sounding song, with a simple yet gorgeous piano part, and a series of layered vocals that re-highlight that element of togetherness and the sheer joy of spending time with those you consider to be family. The music is so peaceful that it has the effect of stopping you in your tracks, making sure you’re doing nothing else in this moment, only listening, considering, feeling calm and optimistic.
It’s a powerful way to finish, and as mentioned – this new project is fantastic, from start to finish. Patrick Ames has a way with words and melodies that really connects with audiences, the sort that deserves to be heard simply because it would be a great shame for you to miss out on it. If you’re lucky enough to live locally, make sure to follow Patrick via the social media links below and look out for any live appearances in the coming months".

lyrics

Robert Mondavi (Drinking Song #22)

I want to be like Robert Mondavi
Spend sunny days with friends and family
And everywhere I see, to the west and to the east
The vineyards are lush and they’re green

I want to be like Robert Mondavi
Remind the world that it’s time for company
Enjoy a glass of wine with friends and family,
Because to be alive is to be thirsty

Oh how she gave him style and that Italian salesman’s smile
How Magritte oh how she ran that family
She gave him the time to sell, “Drink wine for your health”
And the rest was bottled as a visit to wine country

I want to be like Robert Mondavi
Remind the world that it’s time for company
And everywhere I see, to the west and to the east
The vineyards are lush and they’re green

I want to be like Robert Mondavi
I want to be like Robert Mondavi
