Patty Griffin is a Grammy-Award winning artist who has achieved
great acclaim for her songwriting as well as her powerful voice.
Her first two albums, "Living With Ghosts" and "Flaming Red" are
considered seminal albums in the singer-songwriter genre, while
"Children Running Though" won Best Album and led to her being
named Best Artist at the 2007 Americana Music Awards. She won
the Grammy for "Downtown Church," her 2010 gospel album. Her
songs have been covered by a myriad of artists including Emmylou
Harris, The Dixie Chicks, Joan Baez and Bette Midler.
Very much in the traditions of American transcendental writer
Ralph Waldo Emerson, and mystical poets like Rumi and Rainer
Maria Rilke, Patty Griffin grounds her themes of love and mystery
in the experience and rhythms of the everyday, the stuff of life.
"Servant Of Love" takes on big ideas, but does so in the
vernacular of folk tales, blues cants and jazz gestures. Griffin’s
characteristic expressive vocals - equal measures passion and
poignancy - and her potent songwriting blur the lines between the
personal, the spiritual and the political. These songs move and
persuade while they dive deep.
