opening track of his self-titled album, Mile Partridge
aptly choruses “I’m all
I got,” and, indeed, except for a few exceptions
from ably skilled musician buddies of his, Partridge wrote,
played, recorded and produced every note on the album.
He’s a Todd Rundgren-like studio wizard whose predilections
are high-volume and high-intensity grunge and certainly
not the handholding, tambourine-tapping styles made famous

Partridge’s Seattle roots are
in evidence from the first tune to the last. The songs
are steeped in the familiar sounds of classic grunge: the
kind made famous by bands like Nirvana, Alice in Chains
and Soundgarden. In fact, one of the tracks, “Kurdt,” pays
homage to the late Monsieur Cobain. Fans who agree with
Partridge’s sentiment, “We need Nirvana,” will
likely find much to like with this album.
