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: The Lil Smokies provide the perfect antidote – On a night when the world to be falling further apart thanks to coronavirus (this would be the night the NBA postponed the season), there stood The Lil Smokies to at least in some small measure save the day. The quintet is part of a generation of musicians with bluegrass as the basis, but not totally the sum of the music either.... »»»
Concert Review: White makes the case for himself, no matter how dark the music – John Paul White opined with a glint in his eyes that his songs were not of the uplifting variety. In fact, they were downright dark. How else to explain "The Long Way" with the line "long way home back to you." Or "James," a song inspired by his grandfather who suffered from dementia. But lest you think that the Alabama... »»»
