We caught up with Griffin House after the release of his latest album ‘Balls.’ Get to know more about him and how his music has come full circle as he is finding his purpose in life.
1. Which is your favorite song on your new album ‘Balls’ & tell us the story behind it.
My favorite song is probably “Go Through It.”
It sums up the idea of the album in the line “you can never get around what you gotta go through.”
I would have sang “you can never get around what you have to go through” but it didn’t sound as good when you sing it.
If it was a poem and not a song, i would have written the latter line.
But the song is about doing the hard work in life that most of us, including myself, avoid until it becomes too painful not to do it. By work, I mean work on my insides. Work on my heart and my head. Work on my spiritual well being.
Work on becoming more of an others centered person, rather than a self centered person.

The lyrics in Griffin House’s popular hit are quite telling of his music. Using soft acoustic melodies, emotional lyrics and, at times, an obvious appreciation of the fairer sex, House weaves together honest and catchy songs.
