Ohio native and Nashville resident Griffin House recently stopped by the Paste Studio, performing tracks “Further” “Yesterday Lies,” and “Games” off his latest album So On and So Forth.
A name that instantly comes to mind upon first listening to Griffin House is Woody Guthrie. House approaches singing in a light-hearted, jovial manner that can quickly ascend to a strained dramatic force, much like his contemporary. Many of House’s tracks are acoustically stunning, as he draws out depth and multiple layers just from his voice and acoustic guitar.
His first release came in the form of Upland in 2003. Since then, he’s made quite a name for himself in the indie-folk world. House has released nine albums and shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon.
He has several tour dates coming up in California opening for Jewel. He’ll continue into the fall on his own tour. You can find them all below:
