Dave Griffin / Bio

I was born into an Air Force family traveling quite a bit as a youngster.
My first music memories were my daddy's record collection...Hank Sr. albums...45 rpms of Johnny Cash, Webb Pierce, Johnny Horton, and Marty Robbins.
I was 10 when The Beatles hit America and they had an incredible impact on me.
I remained an avid listener of music until 17, when I picked up the bass guitar and learned Hendrix' "Hey Joe".
I wrote my first song in 1973 about a woman, no less.
I've played in all kinds of bands through the years; but songwriting is my heart and soul.
In the late 8os, Billy Ray Herrin and I co-wrote several songs that were published by the late, great Bill Lowery in Atlanta GA. After Lowery's death, the publishing catalog was purchased by Sony/Tree Publishing in Nashville TN.
In 1998, I began a tribute to Gram Parsons in my backyard that has since grown into a large outdoor gathering called the Annual Gram Parsons Guitar Pull and Tribute Festival featuring headliners like Leon Russell, Jim Lauderdale, and Charlie Louvin to name a few.
My inspirations include: Hank Williams Sr., John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Gram Parsons, Townes Van Zandt, Jimmy Webb, Neil Young, Robbie Robertson, Van Morrison, Gram Griffin, Sean Clark, and William Faulkner.
