Ohio-born, Nashville-based songwriter Griffin House merges irresistible pop-rock hooks with moody Americana shades and an ability to boil his experiences down to sparse songs. Influenced by a line of artists running from Woody Guthrie to Wilco, Griffin developed a distinctive style marked by passionate melodies and layers of ambient guitar. His breakthrough album, "Flying Upside Down," was recorded with members of Tom Petty's Heartbreakers and appeared in 2007 to wide acclaim. His intelligent and heart-felt lyrics and melodies in such songs as “The Guy Who Says Goodbye to You Is Out of His Mind” and “Better Than Love” have garnered commercial and critical acclaim alike. From being featured on the CBS Sunday Morning Show, to touring with the likes of John Mellencamp and the Cranberries, Griffin House continues to gain national recognition.
