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

Patty did a Soundstage show with Emmy Lou Harris, Sean Colvin and Buddy Miller called 3 Girls and their Buddy. There are tracks on You Tube of which some are not great sound quality, but the content is masterful. Check it out!

Like good wine ever so fine. Saw her last night on the first stop of her new tour at Common Grounds. Patty, thank you for visiting our tranquil back yard..

Mother of God is just what it needs to be. That single piano key steps in over and over , keeping the song grounded while giving it incredible strength, like the distant memory that inspired the lyrics. No other voice would fit as well.

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

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.

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 !
