Patty Griffin's fifth studio album 'Children Running Through' features twelve new gems for all to enjoy!
Patty Griffin has blossomed into one of contemporary folk's most enchanting singer / songwriters. She is aging and maturing, mellowing and coming to terms with life and its offerings. Her music is, of course, reflecting this - and she has crafted her most musically diverse and accessible album yet.
As she moves through jazz, beatnik, classic and modern folk, gospel R&B, Americana, and moody piano, Griffin keeps her backing to a minimal (despite the 9 piece string section) the perfect soundtrack for her stories - stories that entertain, amuse and absolutely break your heart - told in her clear ethereal soprano. "The aim," Griffin states, "was to strip everything down and just give it a few brushstrokes here and there, to come up with something that's quiet but powerful."
Emmylou Harris adds one of her most aching harmony lines to the track "Trapeze". "I would go anywhere, anytime to hear Patty Griffin sing her extraordinary songs", says Emmylou.
