Singer-songwriter Patty Griffin continues to amaze with the quality of her work. Her latest release, Impossible Dream, is another showcase for her brilliant writing and lovely – often melancholy -voice.
Patty was featured today on NPR’s “Morning Edition.” She did an interview with host Steve Inskeep, and played live in the studio. The broadcast only featured excerpts from two songs, but four full length songs are available on the NPR web site. Check it out here.
Ms. Griffin was featured as the cover story of two neat music magazines, Paste (April/May issue) and No Depression (March/April). These mags cover a wide range of music, including cool rock, country, alt-country, blues and world, and I highly recomend them. But then again I buy too many music magazines.
And one more Patty item: She is touring this summer – doing some solo gigs and some with the “Sweet Harmony Traveling Revue” – Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch, David Rawlings, and Buddy Miller. This stellar lineup is going to 14 cites this summer. They are coming to my area (Northeast Ohio), and I’m there!
