Griffin House with Peter Bradley Adams
GRIFFIN HOUSE is a singer/ songwriter inspired by Bruce Springsteen, Woody Guthrie, Wilco and Billy Bragg and his music blends sentimental melodies with ambient guitars, and sparse arrangements.
Griffin House is a Springfield, Ohio native who had never even picked up a guitar until he was away at college. In high school, House landed a role in the school’s musical and was surprised to learn he had a natural talent for song, but had no other experience with music. As soon as he learned the basic chords on his $100 guitar, he began to write songs.
House’s first album “Upland” was released in 2003 and attracted attention from Nettwerk who partnered with House to release his second album “Lost & Found” in 2004. Several self-released albums followed, and in 2008 House released “Flying Upside Down.” He has toured with Ron Sexsmith, Patti Scialfa, John Mellencamp, Mat Kearny and the Cranberries. House also recorded a cover of the Jackson Browne song “These Days” for the Everwood soundtrack, which was featured on the show.
Griffin House comes to Anthology on July 24.
