We are an eclectic sound of progressive poprock with a 60s retro jazz kick. We are not your typical mainstream pop band. We are POP/ROCK at its absolute kickinest. We can be played on pop, rock, or jazz radio depending on which songs you prefer. Like the Beatles? Like Sergio Mendes? so do we...

Biography

Silver Griffin is an energetic and dynamic band formed in 2005. They offer an eclectic, diverse sound and have created a unique style of music combining indie, rock, pop, jazz, funk and blues. They appeal to a broad population and are thus not affixed to certain demographics of sound or style although we are probably categorized as very aggressive Pop with a Jazz kicker...

All members of the band have been playing for an extensive amount of time and each bring their own distinct musical talents to the group.

This band has amazing chemistry and writes catchy melodies and meaningful lyrics that demand attention. All songs are written and arranged by the band members.

Silver Griffin recently finished recording their first full length LP which was officially released in October of 2007...are you a Label/Publicist/Promoter??? ask us and we will send you a copy.

We spent thirteen weeks at Radio Star Studios with producer Sylvia Massy Shivy recording the disk. Sylvia is well known for her work with bands such as Prince, Johnny Cash, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Smashing Pumpkins, Tool, System of a Down, and many more.

Originally the band was scheduled for six weeks in the studio and planned to record 10 songs. When Sylvia listened to the 74 songs the band submitted, she had a difficult time selecting which songs should go on the disk. She selected 35 that she really enjoyed and thought would make a great CD and then selected 12 from those to go on the CD. So the original plan for 6 weeks, turned into 13 weeks to accommodate the additional material and allow time to create a fabulous disk.

This disk has been produced by Sylvia Massy Shivy, engineered by Rich Valtrop and mastered at The Plant in Sausalito California by the great John Cuniberti.

2007 Has been an amazing year for the band, with almost 100 shows played to some sell out crowds at some amazing venues. For the record we sold out 2 shows at Cafe Du Nord in San Franisco. We currently have 3 of our songs in 2 motion pictures. "Baby and Bottle" are in the sound track for "The Hottie and the Nottie" starring Paris Hilton and "Longer" is in the soundtrack for "The Year of Getting to Know Us" starring Jimmy Fallon, Lucy Lu, Tom Arnold and Sharon Stone.

2008 should be another fantastic year as we are currently pending approval for our song "Welcome Home" to appear in yet a 3rd motion picture and we are in talks for a few songs to appear in a few popular television shows.

We of course continue our rigorous live performance schedule, are hopefull of appearing in a couple of major music festivals this year and are currently working on a lot of new material and hope to begin recording our 2nd album in late 2008.

We are grateful for all of your support. We are visible and audible at www.myspace.com/silvergriffinmusic or www.silvergriffinmusic.com , or call us at 650-692-4739.

We hope to see you all at an upcoming show.
