Sundilla will welcome Griffin House to Auburn on Friday, April 8. Showtime at Pebble Hill for this outdoor concert is 7:30 p.m. Advance tickets are $20 and can be found at Spicer’s Music, Ross House Coffee and online at sundillamusic.com. Admission at the door will be $25.
Since first breaking into the music scene almost 20 years ago, House has been considered a “rising star,” which might be one reason that “Rising Star” is the title of his latest album. And part of his career definitely fits the definition: he had been in Nashville just a few months when he signed a record deal, saw his first album lauded by critics, was noted on national TV as “one of the best emerging songwriters,” and found himself touring with John Mellencamp and The Cranberries, and meeting the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nelson. Some might consider that a path to ‘overnight success,’ but, “I’ve been a “rising star” for the past 15 years,” House said. “It’s a slow rise.”
That slow rise has seen the Ohio native release more than a dozen albums, enjoy plenty of success as a national headliner for over a decade and earn a great deal of respect as a well-known performer and singer-songwriter. And he shows no signs of slowing down. Maybe American Songwriter says it best: “If you are looking to be blown away by raw talent, then look no further than Griffin House.”
“We’ve been hoping to get Griffin House to Sundilla for years” said Sundilla Organizer Bailey Jones. “His booking agent represents several performers that have played here, such as Kim Richey and Dan Navarro. When I told her that we wanted Griffin to play, she said ‘Yeah, everybody loves Griffin!’ So we started trying to make it work, and it’s finally going to happen. And it will be worth the wait!”
