Patty Griffin

The youngest of seven children, Patty Griffin grew up hearing her mother sing while doing housework and her grandmother's family sing on the front porch at night. In addition to listening intently to the Beatles, Griffin was fascinated by the music of Bruce Springsteen and Rickie Lee Jones. Although she acquired a $50 guitar and began writing songs at the age of 16, Griffin gave little thought to a career as a musician. After living in Florida for nearly two years, she moved to Boston and married, and while her husband encouraged her to perform, she spent most of her time waitressing. However, upon her divorce in 1992, Griffin found herself on her own and began to perform in Boston-area coffeehouses. She quickly attracted attention to her well-crafted songs and gutsy vocals.

After Griffin's over-produced demo tape reached the ears of a talent scout, she was encouraged to re-record it with just her guitar and voice. Within six months, the redone demo resulted in Griffin being offered a recording contract with A&M. The tape was later released as Griffin's debut, Living with Ghosts, and inspired comparisons with recordings by Tori Amos and Alanis Morissette. Griffin's second album, Flaming Red, was released in 1998. Both records showcased the poetic lyricism, bluesy alto vocals, and melodic guitar picking that defined her style and brought her admiration. Four years later, Griffin appeared with a modest acoustic effort entitled 1,000 Kisses. While touring in support of the album in 2002, Griffin documented behind-the-scenes footage for a future DVD collection. A Kiss in Time, which appeared in October 2003, included coverage of the tour, interviews, and two full-length videos. A separate disc capturing Griffin's live stint at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium accompanied the package.

Artists such as Lisa Germano, Emmylou Harris, and Buddy & Julie Miller joined Griffin for the recording of her fourth album, Impossible Dream, which appeared in April 2004. Almost three years later, Children Running Through was released. Griffin's sixth full-length outing, the gospel-infused Downtown Church, a collection of traditional and gospel materiel, was recorded in Nashville's Downtown Presbyterian Church, and arrived in January 2010. She wrote two selections for the album as well. That same year she appeared on Robert Plant's Band of Joy recording and tour. Griffin's next album of new original studio material, American Kid, appeared in early May of 2013; the album debuted at 36 on the Billboard Top 2000. That fall, her shelved 2000 album Silver Bell -- it got lost in record-label mergers of the time -- saw its long overdue release. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi

Patty Griffiin is the ultimate--si n g e r , musician, songwriter, artist, poet. I've been addicted to her music for several decades and I can never get enough. After hearing her song Mary,hundred s of times, it still moves me.
Patty is a Mega Talent and few can sing with the emotion that she brings.

I accidently found her a while back...WHOA!
Had to quickly get info about her- so good.
Patti THANKYOU FOR PETER PAN. That song is INCREDIBLE!
Keep doing what you do- love it :)
Kiss ur left hand
Say ur crushes name
Close ur hand say ur name open ur hand post this is on 15 songs and ur crush will ask u out
Plz Read My bio.
Pattys music is so soulful. I discovered her music from the movie "Griffin and Phoenix" beautiful and sad movie.
Patty is a goddess. In around '99 I saw her at House of Bues LA on the same night as the Grammy Awards. Emmy Lou came in at the end of the show in her Grammy gown, to sing harmony. She held a hand up over Patty's head as if to crown her and told the crowd, 'This is who should have been getting an award.' Indeed. Great writer, great voice, great tunesmith.

This is why I love Pandora...be i n g introduced to incredible artists like Patty Griffin
Patty is unique... and that says a lot these days. I've always loved her music... her diversity is quite amazing, from this song's lullaby-like slow pace to the powerful sonic blast of Flaming Red. She's one of my favorites, and always gives me a great balance when I've listened to enough hard rock for a while...
dont read this because it actually works. You will get kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. tomorrow will be the best day of your life. however if you do not post this comment to at least 3 songs you will die in 2 days. now you've started reading this so don't stop. this is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in at least 143 minutes when if done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen in big letters this is scary cause it actually works

Incredible voice Patty. Your lyrics and register of your voice stopped me dead in my tracks. Keep, keeping on lady. Way to go!
cgriffin664
such a sensitive and lovely song! thanks, Patty!
Never noticed it until I just heard them back to back but she sings exactly like Harriet Wheeler (Sundays).
cnarudy
She is my solace in moments of dark storms and echoes the music in my heart.
An incredible artist! Authentic, powerful and one of the best songwriters ever! All of her albums are stunning
incredibly good
Living With Ghosts-God what chill inducing imagery.
this is the first i've heard of this singer, which i am enjoying very much!
beechwoodguy
I'm a brand new fan!
one of the finest voices to enter my eares ever!
I have been a fan of Patty Griffin since the official release date of her album, Flaming Red. To me, she is the ultimate, consummate singer/songw r i t e r of all time. Just my two cents.

Reminds me of Bonnie Raitt...defi n i t e l y NOT a bad thing!!!! Lovely!

One thing wrong wtih that bio. Patty is a HIGH SOPRANO, not an alto, , despite the fact tht she can belt like crazy and sing relatively low. I know, I'm a voice teacher.
Patti is truly 'Heaven sent' darcysbc. Have been fortunate to see here live 6 times. She will be in the mix tonight as we sit round the fire on a chill rainy NE nite. Continues to blow me away everytime I listen.
Made it through a very difficult year because I had Patty's songs by my side. Heaven sent!
One of the best ever, Thanks Patty for being you!

There are two albums I wore out and repurchased in various forms in the 80s/90s....S p r i n g s t e e n ' s Born in the USA and Rickie Lee's Pirates. No wonder I love Patty Griffin now.
I remember walking to Tower Records in Nashville one morning in 1996, buying Living with Ghosts, and playing it on my discman all the way home. My love for Patty's music began that day, and its just as stong today! Her voice is unforgettabl e !
Discovered Patty thanks to Sirius radio about 6 years ago and she has become my absolute favorite singer/songw r i t e r . People are always blown away when i turn them on to Patty!
I learned of her when I saw an almost lifesize cutout of her from her Impossible Dreams album cover at Barnes and Noble. I listened to a bit of it there and was hooked!

I was fortunate enough to see Patty back in the early '90s in a cafe at Blue Hill, Maine. Never heard of her before. She absolutely blew the place away. I'm pretty sure that all of us there that night felt we were in the presence of something truly special.
Well, time has sure proved that right. Her voice and storytelling are a gift from the gods.
One of the best ever in this genre. I cannot imagine how my life would have evolved last decade without Patty
Rain gives me goosebumps
jmgebhardt
She's the best. I've listened to Living With Ghosts like a bajillion times...
Smooth as Silk & Music to float away on warm wings Thanks Patty!
Great music! Patty Rocks... :-)
Love you Patty!

1,000 Kisses a "modest acoustic effort"? She does some incredible work on that album-CD...
Nice
I discovered this phenomenal artist while listening to the Montana Radio Cafe on the internet ( montanaradio c a f e . o r g ). Her first album, Living With Ghosts, is a treasure. Her voice is so pure and powerful.
Check out her duet with EmmyLou Harris, Trapeze.
it's like every song makes me cry for one reason or another.

I don't know how I discovered Patty years ago. But in my darkest times, her voice has both consoled me and given me hope. And she used to be a waitress. . . .
Just saw Patty with Robert Plant at Merlefest, what a voice. Patty is one incredible talent. My only question is why haven't I been listening sooner?
