When they were both students at the College of William & Mary, Esten and Hanson first connected. Patty, who was then from an Italian military family and had traveled all the way there, had originally intended to enroll at Duke. She luckily missed the deadline for acceptance and met Esten on campus.

There were initially no sparks between the two because Esten was busy touring with his band N’est Pas and Patty was already linked to another man. But in her second year, Patty watched Ne’s Pas live after breaking up. Most notably, Charles addressed her personally in the audience while singing “Romeo and Juliet” by Dire Straits.
