15th Jan 2020
As part of her world tour, the GRAMMY® Award winner comes to play Queen Elizabeth Hall in May following the release of her new album Patty Griffin (PGM Recordings/Thirty Tigers) on the 8 March.
Representing a new chapter for the incomparable singer-songwriter this self-titled album immediately stands among the most deeply personal of her recordings. Patty Griffin’s power lies in how she can express the strikingly intimate while never making it about herself, all wrapped in sparse arrangements that breathe an incomparable force and import into her songcraft.
A quintessentially American artist and widely regarded among the best pure songwriters of her era, Griffin’s works has been performed by everyone from Emmylou Harris to Jeff Back, to Kelly Clarkson.
‘I’d heard her onstage with Robert Plant, but here I was blown away by the full force of her vocal prowess. It was clear that we were in the presence of someone who can really, really sing’ (Financial Times)
‘Patty Griffin has consistently been one of Americana’s most distinctive performers. It’s her devastating voice and ear for the smallest detail that ultimately makes the difference’ (Q Magazine)
