CD reviews for Patty Griffin

Patty Griffin CD review - Patty Griffin
Patty Griffin opens her self-titled album singing, "Mama's worried all the time," over Spanish guitar-influenced flourishes, but it's Griffin - not any mama - that sounds constantly worried on it. There are songs like "River," with it's positive praise of a strong woman, but haunting songs, such as "The Wheel," about a black man killed at the hands of a cop, are more the rule than the exception. Griffin's voice has taken on nearly an elder's »»»
Silver Bell CD review - Silver Bell
Renowned lost albums have always held a certain fascination, the sort of thing that prompts critics, fans and fanatics to uncover the cobwebs shrouding any music stashed away in the darker recesses of historical legend. The Beach Boys' "Smile," Dylan's "Great White Wonder" and The Who's "Lifehouse" provide but a few tempting examples of what might be the proverbial mother lode. Those examples, however, offer barely a hint of the elusive offerings sought »»»
American Kid CD review - American Kid
Patty Griffin can be a bit morose, a mournful singer who seems reticent to offer any upbeat assessments. Given that MO, it's particularly gratifying to find Griffin's "American Kid" to be a real revelation. While the tone remains similarly downbeat, the album brings with it a new resilience and inherent emotionalism that make these songs incisive even on first hearing. Clearly, Griffin has connected with an exceptional muse. Loosely framed around sepia-toned themes of family »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Stapleton shows his traditional roots – Chris Stapleton's All-American Road show feels like a singular mission to rid the genre of the bro country scourge that has plagued it for years. He came out with a blazing one-two punch of "Second One To Know" and "Without Your Love" and packed a stadium sized onslaught into a 9,000-seat arena. He never once veered from his... »»»
Concert Review: Jinks wins over fans, especially new ones – Cody Jinks asked the crowd a bit into his show how many had never seen him before. It seemed like Jinks has made a lot of musical inroads into the public's consciousness because roughly three quarters of the audience raised their hands to show that this was their first time. That probably made Jinks feel pretty darn good about how life has been... »»»

Willis, Robison spin "Beautiful Lie" Eleven years ago, Kelly stepped away from music.
