Griffin Anthony Bio

With an unforgettable first name, Griffin Anthony’s songs echo hints of other unmistakable first-named greats: Townes, Jackson, Van and Levon. Hailed as “a stunningly persuasive and soulful voice,” Griffin’s wary, deep-set almond eyes and 6-foot 5-inch delivery are as striking as his moniker.

The 32-year-old New York native made his start in 1995 as the drummer of The Ripptides, whose members included children of Arlen Roth and Alan Menken. As a teen, Griffin worked backstage at the Newport Jazz & Folk Festivals, before eventually signing with BMI and Orange Music Publishing in 2008.

He has performed at festivals including Wanee, SunFest, and CMJ, while his catalog has garnered placements on HBO, ABC, NBC, E!, CBS, MTV, VH1, and Bravo. A multifaceted creator, Griffin was the principle film score composer for the independent film, Catskill Park as well as HBO’s Call to Action and I Wanna See You commercials.

Griffin independently released his first full-length album Crazy Ways in January of 2010, with the production aid of Grammy-winning Charles Dye and Grammy-nominated Dan Geary. Winning “Best Vocalist” at the International Music Festival marked the next step in an ambitious year for Griffin — 2011 saw over 200 national tour dates, song placements with Lowe’s, Office Depot, Virgin Atlantic, and the release of Live at 305. Recorded in Miami during a sold out New Year’s Eve show and released on Big Eyes Records, iTunes highlighted the EP on its homepage. This exposure opened fresh channels of exposure and helped to land Sleepy Sunday on the ballot for “Best Pop Solo Performance” at the 54th Grammy Awards.

The Canyon reveals a more nuanced approach to song construction and storytelling. With sweeps and swells of a pedal-steel guitar, Griffin takes a sharp left turn from the pop-centric and smoothly paved road of Crazy Ways. Recorded at Grammy-winning George Noriega’s Cutting Cane Studios and released in August of 2012, Griffin describes the EP as “a loosely conceptual project; inspired by the spirit of 1970’s California rock and traditional southern roots.” The Canyon earned Griffin a nomination for “Songwriter of the Year” at the International Music & Entertainment Awards in September of 2013. Later that year, Griffin was commissioned by the SPCA to write for their annual adoption campaign. An animal lover himself, Nobody Loves Like You was soon recognized among finalists for “Best Original Music” at New York Festivals: Film & TV Awards.

Shortly after being named the recipient of the 2014 Nova Southeastern University Distinguished Alumni Award, Griffin began production on The Making of a Man. Recorded at Nashville’s GailHaus Studios with producer Johnny Shortridge, Griffin’s sophomore full-length album was released in August of 2015 on Big Eyes Records. With the additional aid of multi Grammy-winning David LaBruyere, the roots-driven production exhibits a reverence for the traditional American song; melding a warm analog glow with handsome arrangements and a rough-hewn live approach.
