Song of the Week: Patty Griffin (and Her “Driver”)

Patty Griffin

When we talked to the nice folks at New West Records a few weeks ago, they were excited about the recent signing of Austin-based singer/songwriter Patty Griffin. Her new American Kid album is coming out May 7.

The first single from it, “Ohio,” is about the Underground Railroad, and how slaves used the network to escape to freedom. Griffin’s husband and “driver,” Robert Plant, sings harmony and came up with the tempo and mood for the song.
