My Music Monday

Patty Griffin is one of those artists that if you blink, you'll miss.

She flies enough under the radar that it is probable to easily miss her, though you might know some of her work. The Dixie Chicks and / or Natalie Maines has recorded a half-dozen or so of her songs. They are a great conveyor of her music. She performs with Emmylou Harris - in concert (I've seen once) and on record.

She also dated Robert Plant for a number of years.

Griffin is a performer and a songwriter.

I actually discovered her music back around 2000 at one of those playing stations they used to have at Border's. The first song from her disk 1000 Kisses was "Rain".  It just struck me enough that I picked up the cd and purchased it right there and then.

I can't say that Griffin has a certain style. She goes enough from Folk to Americana to out and out rock and roll.

If push came to shove, I'd say I like Griffin way more as a writer than a performer. She certainly has her moments - and they're strong - but that's my thought.

Still, I love "Rain".

Blobby, I seriously think that the word 'eclectic' was coined just for you.
