Singer, songwriter and guitarist Nanci Griffith uses a combination of country and folk in her music. Born in 1953 in Seguin, Texas, Griffith was born to musical parents, putting her into the industry early on. She took to country music in the mid-80s, earning a reputation as a songwriter when artists like Kathy Mattea and Suzy Bogguss began recording her songs. She has also teamed up with Jimmy Webb for the AIDS benefit album Red Hot + Country on the song “If These Old Walls Could Speak.” As a survivor of breast cancer and thyroid cancer, Griffith was a proud contributor of the Red Hot Organization.
Since the late 70s, Griffith has released a number of albums, including five Top 50 U.S. Country albums. Her singles have included those such as “Once in a Very Blue Moon,” “Lone Star State of Mind,” “Trouble in the Fields,” “Never Mind” and “I Knew Love.”
In 1994, Griffith was awarded the Best Contemporary Folk Album for her album Other Voices, Other Rooms at the Grammy Awards. She has also been honored with the Americana Trailblazer Award in 200 by the Americana Music Association.
In 2011, after months of limited touring, her band mates The Kennedys (Pete and Maura Kennedy) brought their professional Manhattan recording studio into Nanci’s home. There, Griffith and her team, the Blue Moon Orchestra, have co-produced her album Intersections. The album includes several new original songs and was released in 2012.
