The up-and-coming singer-songwriter discusses her penchant for cheap guitars, her favorite ESP Ron Wood T-style, and the boutique-stocked pedalboard she built with her dad.

Patterson plugs directly into a rather modest pedalboard that she built, along with her father, with some cabinet wood from the local hardware store.

Tucked underneath is a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2+ that keeps everything powered up.
