31 Days of Women: Grainne Duffy

Grainne Duffy released her critically acclaimed debut album Out of the Dark in 2007 and the striking project garnered the Irish singer-songwriter sets at festivals like Glastonbury, Blue Balls, Blues du Passion, and Tremblant International Festival. A testament to her songwriting and stage show, the singer continues to impress on her latest album, 2017’s Where I Belong. The 10-track LP highlights her impact as a solo artist with memorable storytelling and bluesy vocals.

Duffy’s music has a throwback feel that at times recalls Janis Joplin and her impressive guitar skills coupled with her standout songwriting and captivating vocals make it easy to envision her playing the stage at Woodstock. With guitar playing and distinct soul that brings to mind B.B. King, Duffy is one artist to keep on your radar. One listen to her performance of “Drivin’ Me Crazy” and it’s easy to see why she’s a respected artist overseas.



Other highlights include her current single, “My Love,” where Duffy proves she is a triple threat with infectious singing, engaging storytelling and memorable guitar shredding. Meanwhile, the title track of her latest album continues her intrigue. Listen to both below.
