Chico based singer songwriter, soulful key player and family man Pat Hull is back with a new single for Portland based Dutch Records. Being a roster mate with the likes of Swatkins, Ezra Bell, Shook Twins is no small feat, and he strolls right in with a this playful funky jam and earns his spot with flying colors. We asked Hull what the message behind “No Returns” is and here is what he had to say:

"If we are lucky, we get a handful of people throughout our lives that gently turn our ship away from the storm, usually without either party conscious it's happening. In my experience this turning leads us back to ourselves, out of the muck and escapist habits we've covered ourselves in.  I've been dealt this luck, a circle of genuinely loving souls and I dedicate this song to them.”

Excited to hear the full release coming out this March via Dutch Records
