Griffin House was born and raised in Springfield, Ohio. He picked up the guitar when he was 18, started writing songs right away, and within a couple years started making records and performing live.
Several self-released albums followed, and in 2008 House released Flying Upside Down, produced by Jeff Trott and featuring Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench. House has toured extensively, opening for the Cranberries, Josh Ritter, John Mellencamp, Ron Sexsmith, Patti Scialfa, Mat Kearney, and many more. These days House tours the United States both solo-acoustic and with a band headlining his own shows.
