Just ahead of her self-titled 10th LP out in March, Patty Griffin will launch a headlining tour on February 28th in Los Angeles. The trek, which is scheduled to run through April 20th, visits venues in New Orleans, Nashville, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and Toronto, Ontario, among others.
Tickets for most of Griffin’s upcoming shows will go on sale Friday, January 18th. Further North American appearances and a string of European dates will be announced soon.
Her first LP since 2015’s Grammy-winning Servant of Love, the personal and intimate yet wholly universal Patty Griffin finds its emotional epicenter in the singer-songwriter’s battle with — and victory over — breast cancer. Recorded for the most part at her home studio in Austin, the LP’s lead track “River” took much of its inspiration in the writing process from Leon Russell’s “A Song for You,” made famous by R&B singer Donny Hathaway. The meditative tune detailing a woman’s strength offers just one of the new record’s emotional highpoints.
Patty Griffin will be available everywhere on March 8th on Griffin’s own PGM Recordings label via Thirty Tigers.
