A rising star in the new wave of pop music
Hertfordshire native Sarah Faith Griffiths is the artist known as Griff. Born to parents of Jamaican and Chinese heritage, she grew up on soul music and recalled hearing songs by Kirk Franklin, Stevie Wonder and Mary J Blige playing at home. However, it was Taylor Swift’s Fearless album that spurred her on to becoming a singer-songwriter.
On her brother’s computer Griff taught herself all about music production. She liked being able to record her own vocals as well as lay down harmonies. Inspiration for her lyrics would come from whatever was happening in her life.
After being signed to Warner Records in summer 2019, Griff released her debut single Mirror Talk and it was featured on Annie Mac’s New Name playlist. The song was conceived around the idea of having internal conversations with yourself. Her second track, Didn’t Break It Enough, followed shortly after, along with a video that Griff produced and art directed – plus she even sewed her own costume for it.
Griff released several more singles in the first half of 2020 including Good Stuff, Forgive Myself and Say It Again. She also fronted a Disney ad campaign over Christmas and landed a spot in the top five of the BBC Sound Of 2021 poll.
Her first release of the new year was a track about heartbreak called Black Hole. It’s the lead single for her mixtape One Foot In Front Of The Other, due for release on 11 June 2021.
In March, Griff received the Rising Star prize at the 2021 BRIT Awards and she also announced four headline UK dates for October 2021.
Griff is playing a series of shows across the UK from 22 – 27 October 2021 in support of her mixtape One Foot In Front Of The Other.
Griff will be visiting the following UK cities in 2021:
Tickets for Griff’s 2021 tour dates go on sale from 10:00 on Friday 26 March 2021.
