Hit Singer-Songwriter KEVIN GRIFFIN Announces Debut Solo Album + Fall Tour

Three decades into an illustrious and multifaceted career, Kevin Griffin finally decided to write and record his first full-length solo album Anywhere You Go to be released October 4, 2019 via BMG. The album will tie into his fall tour and is on sale now, CLICK HERE for more information.

The Better Than Ezra frontman, award-winning songwriter, and Pilgrimage Festival co-founder has added yet another persona to his resume:  solo troubadour.  Buoyed by minimal production, sweeping vocal harmonies, and narrative lyricism, he’s penned some of his most intimate, inimitable, and irresistible tunes to date.

My guiding rule was to do something different; to just do the opposite of my first instinct. I wanted to bring all the music that I’m moved by into a collection of songs that didn’t pull from my usual bag of tricks. I started with no expectations, considerations, or concessions other than just wanting to make music that I loved, and I think because of that the whole process has been a joy. I wanted to make a collection of the music that inspires me-from when I was a kid in the seventies to the songs I hear on Spotify playlists now. The title speaks to that. Sonically, the songs go in a lot of different places. – Kevin Griffin

Over the past year, Griffin started toying with ideas for the songs that would eventually comprise the record. Taking his time, he reacquainted himself with classics such as Neil Young’s Harvest and Bob Dylan’s Blood on the Tracks as well as devouring music from the likes of Dawes, Father John Misty, and Mac DeMarco, to name a few.

He also co-founded and remains a partner in the popular Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival now in its fifth year. Past performers have included Justin Timberlake and Foo Fighters to name a few.

Now with his solo output, listeners get to hear and know Kevin like never before.
