She won a GRAMMY award 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. She was born in Old Town, Maine and resides in Austin, Texas. Her GRAMMY nominated 10th album, Servant of Love, was released in September of 2015 and 11th studio album, Self-Titled Patty Griffin released March 2019 also receiving a GRAMMY nomination for best Folk Album.

"Her voice is exquisite, and her writing remains as surprising as it is masterful. Blessed with a crystalline voice, the ability to find shadows and nuance in her lyrics and a spark that can ignite songs into brushfires of truth, Griffin stands as one of America’s foremost voices of the human condition."
Rolling Stone

"Every Patty Griffin song arrives fully and perfectly formed, which is perhaps her greatest gift. Her song writing is honest and compassionate no matter the subject. Her voice is uniquely compelling, and her guitar work unfailingly evocative. She's a songwriter at the top of her already formidable game."
