Grammy Award-winning Patty Griffin is among the most consequential singer-songwriters of her generation, a quintessentially American artist whose wide-ranging canon incisively explores the intimate moments and universal emotions that bind us together.
Her songs have been covered by the likes of Emmylou Harris, The Dixie Chicks and Solomon Burke. Over the course of two decades, the two-time Grammy Award winner has crafted nine classic studio albums and two live collections, a remarkable body of work in progress that prompted the New York Times to hail her for “writing cameo-carved songs that create complete emotional portraits of specific people…her songs have independent lives that continue in your head when the music ends.” Griffin is currently working her ways towards her eagerly anticipated next album, as open as ever to new sounds and new songs.
