"These are songs that others aspire to be." - No Depression

The Daily Beast called Patrick Sweany a "goddamned good guitarist and songwriter." Writer James Joiner elaborated and said, "On his latest record, Daytime Turned to Nighttime, he’s relaxed a little, settled into his role as a Southern gentleman, and the laconic tunes seep sincerity as much as they do musical dexterity."
For Daytime Turned To Nighttime, Sweany continued to work with local producer and engineer Joe McMahan, who lent his talents to Close To The Floor (2013) as well as That Old Southern Drag (2011). Together, they recruited Ron Eoff (The Band, The Cate Brothers) and Bryan Owings (Tony Joe White, Emmylou Harris) as the rhythm section. Sweany refers to them as "the funkiest, most soulful players you could ask for."
Luke Torn of Uncut rated the album 8 out of 10 and said, "Digging deep into the essence of the late-'60s Muscle Shoals with every note, tapping into both the musical and emotional pull of myriad postwar blues, soul and country styles, Nashvillian Patrick Sweany crafts what sounds like a career highlight."
