A singer and songwriter whose literate, impressionistic storytelling and richly evocative melodies have made her one of the most respected artists in the Grammy Award winner and the Americana Music Association’s 2007 Artist of the Year, Patty Griffin has been hailed as one of the most consequential singer-songwriters of her generation. With her gift for weaving intimate tales about universal emotions, Griffin has become one of the most significant artists in the world of contemporary folk and Americana. Her emotionally resonant songs have been covered by a truly epic assortment of fellow artists, including Emmylou Harris, Linda Ronstadt, and Solomon Burke, among many others. Griffin’s self-titled 10th album, arguably her most personal recording, documents her battle with–and victory over–cancer. The Grammy-nominated album has received unprecedented international acclaim and is yet another testament to Griffin’s craft, perception, and ingenuity.
