Based in Austin, TX, Griffin made an instant mark with her 1996 debut, Living With Ghosts, and its 1998 follow-up, Flaming Red – both now considered seminal works of modern folk and Americana.
Over the course of two decades, the two-time GRAMMY® Award winner (and seven-time nominee) 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.” Patty’s songs have been covered by a myriad of artists including Emmylou Harris, The Dixie Chicks, Joan Baez and Bette Midler.
Griffin is currently working her ways towards her eagerly anticipated next album, as open as ever to new sounds and new songs. Her goals in the meantime are far more earthly, contributing to the wellbeing of the planet and showing compassion for the less fortunate among us via personal and public acts of charity including 2016’s “Use Your Voice” tour in conjunction with the League of Women Voters, and the 2017 “Lampedusa Tour” supporting the Jesuit Refugee Service.
Having already crafted a catalogue that chronicles love and death, heartache and joy, connection and detachment, Griffin is continuing to push her art forward, as always imbuing every effort with compassion and craft, uncanny perception and ever-increasing ingenuity.
