Patrice’s most recent success points to her songwriting skill, as she along with co-writers Wayne Sutton, Darrell Phillips, and Sean Phillips have been awarded Grand Prize Overall and First Prize Rock for their song “My Three Wishes” in the USA Songwriting Competition. In the same competition “Nobody Knows” took Top 10 in Pop.
Her sense for lyrics and melody now winning international recognition, having competed with 32,500 entries from all over the world. Most recently Patrice’s song “Unraveling” garnered an honorable mention in the 2005 Mountain Stage NewSong Contest, presented by Performing Songwriter magazine. In 2006, Patrice appeared as a finalist on the CBS reality show Rock Star: Supernova, a show that documents the search of the band Supernova's new lead singer. Throughout the show, Patrice met a lot of positive review with her performances, including her showcase of her original song, "Beautiful Thing." It was ultimately decided, however, that Patrice was not right for Supernova, and she was eliminated. Host Dave Navarro advised Patrice to seek a solo career, giving her a nod for her talent.
