Bio

From the small mountain town of Cramer, Pennsylvania, Tommy Griffith has hard work and the highway in his DNA. An auto mechanic by trade, Griffith left the garage for the guitar in 2008 and headed to Nashville to the bright light lure of the honky-tonk stages where he began writing and recording for his first album.

Griffith’s self-titled EP is a brew of country and Americana with a drop of rock and roll, and bears six original tracks written by Griffith that fire on all eight cylinders. The unconventional project was recorded to tape in a vintage analog recording studio in Nashville to create a warm, organic sound.

Griffith’s evolution as a musician and songwriter is present in “Let It Burn” and “Don’t Blame Me Amy,” two songs that showcase Griffith’s signature style of a modern day approach to the classic outlaw-style country, complete with a tip of the hat to Merle Haggard and Buck Owens.

For nearly two years, Griffith played a regular full-band Tuesday night residency at a live music venue on Nashville's most famous Music City street, Lower Broadway, and frequently joined in on songwriter rounds at area venues.

When he's not performing or writing new material, Griffith can be found at the drag strip, out hunting and fishing or watching his Steelers play, unless of course, it's a NASCAR Race Day.
