“Despite being the hard rock/metal dude I am, SirenSong is right up there in the best of ’95 for me…Grace Griffith’s phenomenal voice is maybe my favorite currently, in ANY style of music.”—Ray Dorsey, CHAOS Newsletter, Nov. 1995
The Grace album first exposed Grace Griffith to a national audience. It was rated as one of 1996’s best albums by Spectator Magazine (Raleigh, NC) and The Midnight Special (WFMI, Chicago).
Minstrel Song (2000) brought notice from the UK. “It is Griffith’s clear, soaring voice that dominates everything, somewhat reminiscent of Sandy Denny, but unmistakably individual. Make no mistake, this is a beautiful album, and recommended not only to Celtic fans but to all who appreciate fine music.” — Jeremy Isaacs, Maverick, June 2003.
Sands of Time (2003) won the 2003 WAMMIE for Best Traditional Folk Vocalist, and resulted in Grace being named WAMA’s 2003 “Artist of the Year.”
My Life (2006) was WAMA’s 2006 “Album of the Year” in addition to “Best Contemporary Folk Album,” and Grace was named “Co-Artist of the Year.”
