Griffin House







A couple of photos of Griffin House performing at Musica in Akron, Ohio last week. Griffin is by far my favorite artist and I enjoyed photographing him and interviewing him for my "On Stage" project for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. You can check out Griffin's music at http://griffinhouse.nettwerk.com/ and I'm sure you will like what you hear. Griffin is one of those artists that should be in everyone's music collections! I'll be sure to post his "On Stage" video very soon.
