Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Patty Griffin is renowned for her beautiful, personal, and unpredictable songs. With strong, gutsy vocals, Griffin locates a song's nerve endings and brings listeners into a world steeped in Americana, love, sadness, apparitions, and salt-of-the-earth characters.
Patty will be releasing her tenth album, Servant of Love, in Europe on September 11 & in the US (and the rest of the world) on September 25. This will be her first release on her new self-owned label imprint in conjunction with Thirty Tigers. It marks the third time she has collaborated with producer Craig Ross.
Over nine albums, Patty Griffin has proven herself a writer of uncommon perception, with a genius for character-driven story-telling. On this, her tenth, she brings that genius to bear on her over-arching themes. As Servant Of Love travels through different musical terrains-folk and blues, rock and jazz, ancient sounds and modern-a spare, organic quality persists. Patterns and reccurence weave through the album in small ways and large: the drone of open tunings, modal riffs and bluesy moves, images of nature. That lonely trumpet. They create a sense of sonic return that buoys Griffin's larger message: Love persists. In the dark, in the mud, in disaster, in the sun, there love is. An elemental force.
