GRAMMY AWARD-WINNER ANNOUNCES LONG AWAITED AUSTRALIAN RETURN IN MARCH
Iconic singer-songwriter Patty Griffin has announced her highly anticipated return to Australia.
Last in Australia in 2008 for sold-out shows, Patty Griffin has attracted a cult-following with her intimately passionate performance style, telling heartfelt stories with her vivid, powerful vocal.
“Patty Griffin is an absolute inspiration to every songwriter who’s fortunate enough to come across her music.” - Missy Higgins
“I would go anywhere, anytime to hear Patty Griffin sing her extraordinary songs.” - Emmylou Harris
“Her voice alone is enough to rave about and then there are the songs!” - Lucinda Williams
“Patty Griffin can do no wrong.” - Kasey Chambers
Over the course of two decades, the GRAMMY Award-winner – and seven-time nominee – has crafted nine classic studio albums and two live collections, a remarkable body of work that prompted the New York Times to hail her for “[writing] cameo-carved songs that create complete emotional portraits of specific people…(her) songs have independent lives that continue in your head when the music ends.”
Widely regarded among the best singer-songwriters of her era, this year’s self-titled album, Patty Griffin collects songs written during and in the aftermath of profound personal crisis, several years in which she battled – and ultimately defeated – cancer.
“One quality that's distinguished Griffin's body of work throughout her nearly quarter-century career is her gift for imagining the untamed forces of people's inner lives” - NPR
“Sorrowful and stately, Griffin's voice is a startlingly expressive instrument.” - Q Magazine
Patty Griffin’s universal songbook has been covered by Kelly Clarkson, Dixie Chicks, Miranda Lambert, Melissa Etheridge, Susan Boyle, and more. Griffin has also collaborated with a wide range of prolific artists, among them Emmylou Harris, Robert Plant, Jack Ingram, Gillian Welch, and David Rawlings.
Chronicling love and death, heartache and joy, connection and detachment, Patty Griffin continues with her uncanny perception, and ever-increasing ingenuity. A starkly beautiful live show, the return of this pillar of Americana is not to be missed.
