Griffin House to play Lynwood concert

Griffin House, a singer/songwriter from Springfield, Ohio, who now lives in Nashville, will perform at the Treehouse Café at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 20.

Tickets for this 21-and-older one-night-only show are on sale at www.treehousebainbridge.com. The cost is $35 per person.

In the words of American Songwriter Magazine, “If you are looking to be blown away by raw talent, then look no further than Griffin House.”

Now a young family man and artist who is choosing sobriety and celebrating the path to his success, through songs which share his perspective on how people remember the past with rose-colored glasses, how we grow up and realize what we deeply need, and how we must find happiness in ourselves in the present, House will be performing songs from his latest album “So On and So Forth.”

“[It] has a lot to do with recognizing the ego in one’s self and letting it die,” he said. “It can feel like your whole identity is being wiped away, and you don’t even know who you are anymore. For the person singing these songs, holding on to one’s own individuality in order to remain special or important in the world has started to become far less important than being content with being a good, decent, and loving person.”

The project was tracked at Lakehouse Recording Studios, in Asbury Park, New Jersey. House’s ties to Asbury Park go all the back to 2004, when he was invited to tour with Patti Scialfa. His first show in the boardwalk town was opening a show for Scialfa at the Paramount Theatre. It was there that Griffin met her husband, Bruce Springsteen, and those experiences made returning to Asbury Park over a decade later to record “So On and So Forth” feel like a full circle moment in his career.

House recorded the essentially live project with no click track and very little overdubbing. Lakehouse owner, Jon Leidersdorff, helped assemble the band.
