There’s a familiarity about Griffin House when you meet him for the first time. Maybe it’s his Midwestern charm and his honest, unpretentious approach to life. Or it could be the simple sort of truth in his songwriting and his full-blooded Americana guitar. Whatever it might be, Griffin is proof that you don’t have to abandon your roots to cultivate a successful career as a musician. Born and raised in Ohio, Griffin attended Miami University in Oxford where he followed his passion and picked up a guitar for the first time. That passion eventually grew into solo gigs in Nashville, then a record deal with Vancouver-based label Nettwerk and, finally, a national headlining tour. Now, Griffin’s working on a self-produced forthcoming record, which he’ll put out through his very own label, Evening Records.
Griffin and I took a walk to Burnham Shores in Evanston before his show at SPACE on September 9, where we chatted about his journey into music, the learning process and his inspirations along the way.
