Take for example the song "Stay On The Ride." The song is a snapshot of an old man on a bus, performed in a classic R&B style, with the command to stay on task if you want to get somewhere. The bass line is played on acoustic guitar and cumulatively has the feel of a bus bouncing from side to side as it trundles down streets. By the end of the song, the listener has been taken along on the ride and is as familiar with the man as anyone else who sees him daily.
Occasionally, Griffin is joined by Emmylou Harris. Their voices are so similar that it gives the listener the feeling that Griffin is singing a duet with an older version of herself. I have no doubt that Griffin will continue to gift the world with her talented songwriting through future recordings and performances for many years to come.
