Patty Griffin is a Grammy-Award winning artist who has achieved great acclaim for her songwriting as well as her powerful voice. Her first two albums, Living With Ghosts and Flaming Red are considered seminal albums in the singer-songwriter genre, while Children Running Though won Best Album and led to her being named Best Artist at the 2007 Americana Music Awards. She won the Grammy for Downtown Church, her 2010 gospel album. Her songs have been covered by a myriad of artists including Emmylou Harris, The Dixie Chicks, Joan Baez and Bette Midler. She was born in Old Town, Maine and resides in Austin, Texas.
Over her previous nine albums, Patty Griffin has proven herself a writer of uncommon perception, with a genius for character-driven story-telling. On SERVANT OF LOVE, her tenth, released to great critical acclaim in October 2015, she brings that genius to bear on her over-arching themes. She travels through different musical terrains — folk and blues, rock and jazz, ancient sounds and modern—a sparse, organic quality persists. Patterns and recurrence weave throughout the album in small ways and large: the drone of open tunings, modal riffs and bluesy moves, images of nature.
