I’ve been listening to Griffin House ever since his “Lost and Found” album. There are several songs off that album that I still love but the one that initially captured my attention was “Waterfall”, it’s such a beautiful sad song. Another one of my favorites was “Tell Me Lie”. It wasn’t until this weekend when my iPod was on shuffle that I was reminded of him again.
I was online today buying some music and ran across a review of Griffin’s new album, so I ventured over to his page to hear a little more. It’s funny because I’ve never really thought he sounded much like Jack Johnson but for some odd reason someone did. Maybe it’s just me but I don’t hear the comparison.
Review below from Fingerprints:
Griffin House – Flying Upside Down
Griffin is a songwriter who will forever be compared to Jack Johnson, only because Jack got there first. Griffin has a laid-back feel to his music, but where Jack feels like the beach, Griffin’s music is much more informed by solid characters and an earthy-ness that just isn’t associated with the coast – it’s music that is much more like a house-fire than a bonfire.
He’s currently on tour, I’m thinking of catching his Troubadour show I’ve missed him every other time he’s been in L.A.
