I never knew who Griffin House was before until I saw him open for The Cranberries. But after seeing him live, I got into his music. He just released a 3rd album last week called The Learner and now he released a new single called “Head For The Hills.” A song which inspired him to write about the recent events in Nashville and the Gulf of Mexico. Watch the video below!
Griffin said this about the song:
“I sat in my bedroom and wrote “Head For The Hills” while the rain pounded Nashville and caused the city to flood. When I saw the destruction in the aftermath and thought about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, my mind wanted to make sense of all the natural and man made disaster that seems to be occurring at an unusual pace, and my heart wanted to sing relief into the hearts of the people who have suffered loss from these disasters. I headed to Louisiana to capture some images of the land and the people in the midst of their stories.”
