An Exceptional Songrwriter,
This review is from: Living With Ghosts (Audio CD)
Patty Griffin bares it all on this disc. Each song is like a story, raw and heartfelt; just a girl and her guitar. No fanfare, no hooplah-- just pure acoustic guitar and an edgy, hardened voice.
"Mad Mission" and "Let Him Fly" (recently covered by the Dixie Chicks on FLY) are the two best tracks on the record. One could compare her to a folkier Beth Orton with a bit of Bonnie Raitt and Liz Phair added for attitude.
I would suggest this CD to anyone who likes Lucinda Williams, Gillian Welch, or even the Indigo Girls.
