About the Artist
Hailing from Old Town, Main, 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 Bruce Springsteen, The Beatles, and Rickie Lee Jones, Patty Griffin bought her first guitar for 50 dollars
when she was sixteen and began writing her own songs. Although she showed immense talent at a young 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 A&M Records, Patty Griffin fine-tuned her demo to
highlight her folksy minimalism, and the hard work resulted in her debut album, Living With Ghosts, which was 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 fellow female musicians of the genre like Fiona
Apple, Tori Amos, 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' label ATO Records, with whom she released four more
albums, 1000 Kisses, A Kiss in Time, Impossible Dream, and Children Running Through.
Griffin first achieved big time success with her album Children Running Through which won Best Album from the Americana Music
Association and also resulted in Griffin winning Artist of the Year. The album also debuted at number 34 on Billboard's Top
200 charts, her highest debut to date and firmly established Patty Griffin as one of the top folk acts in the world. A few
years later her 2011 album Downtown Church explored some new styles for Griffin and won her the 2011 Grammy Award for Best
You have been waiting for months for this night to come and finally as the
lights lower you begin to see Patty Griffin taking the stage. The crowd erupts in applause as Ingrid picks up her guitar and
approaches the mic. A hush falls over the crowd as Ingrid thanks them and launches into a fan favorite like Living with Ghosts,
Flaming Red, 1,000 Kisses, Impossible Dream, Children Running Through, Downtown Church, Amrican Kid, or Silver Bell. The crowd
once again erupts and sings and dances along to hits throughout the night. Always one to surprise the crowd, perhaps Patty
Griffin sprinkles in some new songs throughout the set, or decides to play some cover songs. This is your chance to see one
of the hottest indie folk singers on the scene today and she definitely exceeds expectations. Wherever and whenever she performs,
Patty Griffin has an ability to connect with the audience and seduce with her voice that is not always found in modern pop
music. Do not miss the chance to see Patty Griffin when she hits your town.
In addition to her
career in music, Patty Griffin has also dabbled in acting and has appeared in the movies Elizabethtown and Cremaster 2.
