Griffin first realized he wanted to be a musician when he was 19 and sat down at the computer to produce his first song. He realized an entire day had gone by, and decided if he could make a living doing something that brought him that much joy on a daily basis, he didn’t want to do anything else with his life. Griffin’s musical influences include classic rock and blues such as Stevie ray Vaughn and Eric Clapton, and modern artists such as Ben Rector, One Republic, and John Mayer.
