Description
American Kid is Griffin's first release of new material since Children Running Through in 2007. In between, she made the Grammy-winning Downtown Church and became a member of Band of Joy alongside Robert Plant. On the first single released from this new album, "Ohio," she duets with Plant, and it wowed people everywhere as it made its way around the Web. Two amorous waltzes celebrate family, "Mom and Dad's Waltz" and "Get Ready, Marie," while other songs touch on the nostalgic or bittersweet aspects of relationships ("Gonna Miss You When You're Gone"; "Highway Song"; "Faithful Son"; "Irish Boy"; "Wild Old Dog"; "That Kind of Lonely").

"Her richly textured voice has the character for country music but with a heavier drawl in place of a twang (perhaps a result of growing up in Maine)…. The new songs [are] unsurprisingly as strong as her more familiar material. The title song offers an empathetic portrait…. 'Go Wherever You Want to Go,' meanwhile, possesses the simplicity and uplift of heaven-minded folk."—Boston Globe

"Artists as diverse as the Dixie Chicks, Emmylou Harris, Martina McBride and Reba McEntire have covered her tunes, and occasionally the description 'the songwriter's songwriter' pops up…. Her albums might be filed under folk, country or rock, and her eclectic sounds touch on these and many other formats. And while publishing royalties have helped pay the bills, Griffin's own recordings have almost universally been better — if only because she brings a subtlety and melancholy to her work that others seem to miss."—Seattle Times
