About Patty Griffin
Patty Griffin has been a staple of the folk music genre, and she is best known for her minimalist song arrangements that feature
a stripped-down, yet poignant sound. Patty Griffin started to explore her interest in music as a teenager, when she bought
her first guitar at around age 16. Later, Griffin began playing in coffee shops and small venues in the Boston area, where
she soon attracted the attention of A&M Records. After scoring a deal with A&M Records, Patty Griffin went to work
on her debut studio album, "Living With Ghosts," which was released in 1996. The album was well received within the genre,
and it went on to sell over 200,000 copies in the United States.
After the success of her debut, Griffin followed up
with her sophomore album, "Flaming Red," which was released in 1998 and experimented with a more high-tempo, rock-oriented
sound on some of the songs. The album hit the number 12 spot on the Top Heatseekers chart, and proved to be another success
for the folk music songstress. Patty Griffin's next release was 2002's "1000 Kisses," which shot to the top spot of the Top
Heatseekers chart, and marked Griffin's continuous success in her genre. After "1000 Kisses" was released, "A Kiss In Time"
followed in 2003, which was also her first live album. "A Kiss In Time" used recordings from her performance at Nashville's
Ryman Auditorium, and it entered the Top Heatseekers chart at the number 21 position.
Patty Griffin continued to release
several albums, including "Impossible Dream" in 2004, and "Children Running Through" in 2007, which entered the Billboard
200 chart at the number 34 spot, her highest ever. In the first week of its release, the album sold an estimated 27,000 copies,
and it remains a popular album among fans. Backed by a solid catalog of work that spans over many years, Patty Griffin actively
tours and brings her unforgettable music to fans far and wide.
