Since her debut in 1996 with Living with Ghosts, Patty Griffin has continued to release critically-acclaimed albums steeped in Americana, love, sadness, apparitions, and salt-of-the-earth characters. Continually evolving, Griffin’s success across genres has been recognized with a Grammy nomination for her second album 1,000 Kisses and the “Best Traditional Gospel Album” Grammy award for Downtown Church in 2010. A singer of startling power, emotion and versatility, Griffin’s crowd-hushing performance will follow the release of her seventh studio album, American Kid, due out on May 7th. [BRICArtsMedia.org]
