Nashville's GRIFFIN HOUSE Talks of Music, Famous Friends & Songwriting

griffin_house_cropped_0.jpg

This Edition of "A LOOK AT THE ARTS with Tom Lounges" originally aired on Friday, June 16,2017

MUSICAL GUEST:  Nashville Singer/Songwriter GRIFFIN HOUSE

GRIFFIN HOUSE -- a Nashville success these days, currently doing a one man tour of theaters and clubs in support of his tenth and latest album, "So On and So Forth" -- stops for a regional gig this weekend (June 23) at Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, MI.  

House got a big break when he was invited to open a tour for Patti Scialfa, the wife of Bruce Springsteen, which generated a high profile within the industry for the young songsmith.   House later shared stages with the likes of John Ritter,  John Mellencamp, The Cranberries and other top names. In 2008, House found two of Tom Petty's Heartbreakers -- bassist Mike Campbell and guitarist Benmont Tench -- sitting in with him on the sessions for his "Flying Upside Down" album.

House's career journey from college rocker to insightful and sensitive song man has been an adventurous one to say the least.   On this program, House shares the advice given to him by Bruce Springsteen when House popped into Scialfa's dressing room before a gig.
