An amber smooth voice with subtle grit, driving guitar, and an unassuming stage presence create the backdrop for Griffin House’s deliciously catchy and utterly personal original songs. A Nashville musician with a Midwestern upbringing, House launched into a music career as a college student after discovering Bruce Springsteen, Woody Guthrie, and the Mermaid Avenue albums by Wilco and Billy Bragg. In addition to several albums and 15 years of national tours, House has served as an opening act for the Cranberries, Josh Ritter, John Mellencamp, Ron Sexsmith, and many others.
Griffin’s newest album Rising Star (2019) varies musically and lyrically, spanning thematically from fatherhood and overcoming writer’s block to his personal struggle with sobriety.
