Pat Cloud was born in Los Angeles in 1950 and discovered the five-string banjo by chance at age fourteen when his mother purchased a used banjo at a swap meet as a wall decoration. By age sixteen, he was playing professionally and toured with the USO Bob Hope Oriental Command tours of 1967 and 1970. In the early 1970s, his television appearances included the Tonight Show, Merv Griffin, and PBS. He has been a Los Angeles studio musician for 25 years. In 1972, he began jazz studies with former Nat King Cole guitarist Horace Hatchett and then with William Thaisher (co-author of the Joe Pass guitar books). He started to adapt a fluid jazz vocabulary to five-string banjo utilizing melodic technique pioneered by such banjoists as Carrol Best, Bobby Thompson and Bill Keith. In 1974, he joined briefly with mandolinist Jimmy Gaudreau and country music great Keith Whitley forming the New Tradition band playing bluegrass throughout the southeast. Between 1976 and 1980, Cloud continued jazz studies with jazz vibraphone player Dave Pike and continued in the Los Angeles studio circuit along with associations with the Walt Disney Corporation and the UCLA jazz workshop. In 1983, he recorded the album Higher Power with Barry Solomon and Bob Applebaum on the Flying Fish label and was nominated that same year in the best new instrument category by Downbeat Magazine. In 1989 Cloud was awarded Banjo Player of the Year by the California Country Music Association. In 1992, he participated in the Tennessee Banjo Institute with other banjo notables including John Hartford, Douglas Dillard, Carl Jackson, Grandpa Jones, Bill Keith, Taj Mahal, Mike Seeger, Ralph Stanley, Tony Trishka, Doc Watson, and legendary New Orleans banjoist Danny Baker. Pat Cloud makes his home in the Eastern Sierras in central California.
