Hanging out with Griffin House at A&R Music Bar

Griffin House Writes Poetic Answers to Captain Art Walk’s Questions..
1. Does Griffin House play any golf at all these days?
Ok ready for the most pretentious answer ever?:
I am a student of the game, and of the swing, and of the mind set it takes to play well ie live well. It is said that Hieronymus Bosch played an ancient game that was a primitive form of golf called Kolven. I don’t think anyone is going to argue that his participation in the sport made him any less of an artist. “Garden of Earthly Delights” is one of the best painting of all time. Moe Norman, and Ben Hogan to me have everything in common with Hieronymus Bosch, B.K.S. Iyengar, Henry Miller or Heracleitus because they all embody greatness in their passion for their art and the way they see how everything is connected. Separateness is and illusion, and I believe that realizing we are all connected and all one, is one of the key ingredients of the human race finding peace and harmony, heaven, nirvana, whatever, but ultimately surviving…
2. Griffin House has a Kickstarter video that is full of insights to his quirky, romantic personality. He suggests that he writes better upside down. Lyrics are very strong. What rituals does Houses turn to when it is time to write songs?

Cheeky Interviews Musician Griffin House – Father, Rock ‘N’ Roller and Overall Good Guy
by Kristen Mitchell – September 14, 2012
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.
