breakthrough debut in the mid-1990's. With a powerful voice, gutsy lyrics, and stripped-down folk sensibilities, Patty Griffin
has proven herself as a force to be reckoned with, and her chart-toppers haven't only launched her successful career, but

last 20 years. Now this alluring songstress is on tour to promote her latest studio release-- get your concert

Born in Old Town, Main in 1964, Patty Griffin was the youngest of seven siblings, and grew up listening to
her mother sing old music standards around the house. Influenced by music greats like The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, and
Rickie Lee Jones, Patty Griffin bought her first guitar for $50 when she was 16 and began composing her own songs. Though
she showed immense talent at an early age, she never considered a career as a professional musician. She moved to Boston after
a brief stint in Florida, and married her husband, who encouraged her to pursue her passion. The marriage was short-lived,
and after her 1992 divorce she began singing her songs of love, life, and heartbreak in coffee shops around the Boston area.
She recorded a short demo tape, and was courted by A&M Records after a scout caught one of her intimate performances.

Working with the minds behind the development division at A&M, Patty Griffin fine-tuned her
demo to highlight her folksy minimalism, and the efforts resulted in her debut album, Living With Ghosts, being released in
1996. Living With Ghosts, along with her 1998 follow-up Flaming Red, which blended her Americana-tinged tunes with some more
up-tempo rock and roll numbers, began to draw comparisons between Griffin and her fellow female musicians of the genre like
Tori Amos, Fiona Apple, and Alanis Morrisette. After her third album, Silver Bell, went unreleased by A&M Records, Griffin's
contract was terminated and she began collaborating with Dave Matthews' (of Dave Matthews Band Fame) label ATO Records, with
whom she released four more albums, 1000 Kisses, A Kiss in Time, Impossible Dream, and Children Running Through. The last
album debuted at number 34 on the Billboard 200 Charts in 2007, and launched her to the level of success she continues to
enjoy to this day.
