Evocation is something Griffin has always had a black belt in. Strength in vulnerability, dignity in devastation, she is as Dust Bowl in her elegance as she is electric in the unfiltered emotions she serves.

With its immediacy, economy, cagey strength, and vulnerability, Griffin delivers these 12 songs not as gifts or statements, but as her own evidence of what is, what was, and what yet may come.

Six years ago, folk singer-songwriter Patty Griffin released her best album to date, Children Running Through. Her new one, American Kid, might top that stunning achievement.

American Kid successfully recaptures Griffin’s acoustic roots in haunting and moving fashion.

Patty Griffin continues her streak of releasing some of the best Americana in existence by hitting all the right spots to induce nostalgia, hope, hurt, and a million other emotions. The instrumentation is classic, the lyrics are certainly Patty, and the final product is fascinatingly good. Sweet, but with a world-wise edge.
