Like Billboard Magazine wrote:"Griffin displays the vocal prowess, attitude and range of a true ingenue."
With a powerfully unique voice and a definitive sound, Mary Griffin consistently delivers soul stirring performances that captivate audiences around the world. Using her past as a spring board, Mary channels memories into melodies that are proud and strong. Her rich melodic sound and exciting performance style are rooted in the story of a pastor’s daughter with a passion for singing good music.
With Curb Records, Mary began singing for Movie soundtracks and was even featured in the movie Studio 54 where she portrayed the artist Amy Stewart and sang “Knock on Wood” for the soundtrack. She performed “Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You” with Frankie Valley for the closing credits of Conspiracy Theory. Mary also sang “I Wanna Get Back With You” for the movie Driven starring Burt Reynolds. Other notable movies that feature Mary’s voice include: Coyote Ugly and Ballistic X vs Sever.
After returning from Europe promoting and shooting the video for “Ain’t No Living Without You” by Louis Biancaniello and Sam Waters from Color Me Badd, she was privileged to have one of her songs selected by Celine Dion. “I Surrender” was an instant success with Celine and further drove Mary’s writing and singing out front.
She is currently touring with George Clinton & Patti Labelle two people who brought her exciting memories as well as lessons in music, love, and living.
