On Griffin House:
House began writing and recording and issued his first independent release, Upland, in 2003. His music attracted attention from Nettwerk, a Vancouver-based management company and record label, and House partnered with the label's American branch to issue Lost & Found in 2004. In August 2004, on CBS Sunday Morning, music journalist, Bill Flanagan, (MTV/VH1) raved about Lost and Found, putting the newcomer on his short list of the best emerging songwriters in the U.S. "I bought House's CD after a show in New York City," said Flanagan, "and this never happens: I took it home and must have listened to it 20 times that weekend. I was knocked out."
Several self-released albums followed, and in 2008 House released Flying Upside Down, produced by Jeff Trott and featured Mike Campbell and Benmont Tench. House has released the majority of his records on his imprint label, Evening Records. House has toured extensively, opening for artists such as Ronsexsmith, Patti Scialfa, Josh Ritter, John Mellencamp, Matt Kearney, and The Cranberries. Since 2007 House has been a national headliner."
