The Loving Kind
finds Nanci Griffith at the top of her game as a songwriter, interpreter, and singer. Featuring nine songs written by Griffith and her collaborators, and four well-chosen covers, the album takes its place alongside the consistently acclaimed work of this Grammy® Award-winning, genre-defying artist. The songs touch on newsworthy issues as well as matters of the heart, capturing life at its most complex. The Loving Kind
marks a triumphant return for one of America's most revered singer-songwriters. This is Nanci Griffith’s 19th album and first of all-new material since 2005.
With a recording and touring history that stretches back more than two decades, Griffith has established a "brand". But her signature music is much more about art than commerce, which is why her fan base has remained incredibly loyal--fans include contemporaries such as Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, and Emmy Lou Harris, all of whom have either recorded her songs or insisted she record theirs. The Loving Kind
was produced by Pat McInerney and Thomm Jutz and features McInerney on drums and percussion, Jutz on guitar, Matt McKenzie on bass, Barry Walsh on keyboards, Shad Cobb on fiddle and Fats Kaplin on pedal steel guitar, mandolin and fiddle.
