REVIEWS:

"The Canyon elevates Griffin's catalog to a higher level of songwriting, simultaneously demonstrating sophistication and simplicity. The result is substantial: each instrument finds its voice, whether it be the syrupy wail of the pedal steel or the anchored pocket of the electric bass." — Top 40 Charts

 

"He spoke to the audience as if we were old friends and his music translated the same... his love and soul bared for us to share." — Petra Herceg /  MoshPitReport.com

 

"He's more interested in the song than in seduction." — Westport Magazine

 

"Quality not quantity. With only 4 songs, 31-year-old New York native Griffin Anthony delivers a complete Americana/Pop EP of pure genius." — The Driftwood / University of New Orleans

 

"When a song plays as a movie in your head, you know it's a good thing… Griffin has that ability to write a song that I can see as well as feel. Love is my favorite song from this four-songs-aren't-enough EP [The Canyon]." — Ellen Marie Hawkins / Relate Magazine

 

"Kind of Heartland Funk, which may be a completely new term.." — Lee Levin / Grammy award-winning engineer & producer

 

"Don't be surprised if Anthony outlasts most of his Indie contemporaries and is still making viable, compelling music a generation hence. He's that kind of talent!" — Wildy Haskell / 'Wildy's World'

 

"Griffin's fast-paced, blues-inspired melodies and acoustic guitar work are simply hypnotic and contagious! Add Griffin's stunningly persuasive and soulful voice to these melodic arrangements and what do you get? An extremely impressive and enjoyable CD!" — Xavier P. / RadioIndy.com

 

“Griffin Anthony has locked himself into a very unique breed… he got it right, bringing you back to a very specific time in music.” — Harris Decker / Managing Editor, The Truth About Music Magazine

 

“A pleasant offering that’s easy on the ears… sincere lyrics and a ton of vocal talent.” — Eric Weiner / The Wild Honey Pie Media & Events

 

“A genuine sensibility of the music he creates and performs.” — Alexander Shustorovich / President, IMG Performing Arts Management

 

“Griffin has really made a name for himself. I’ve always thought he was very talented.” — Kevin Rolston / iHeartMedia, Inc., Host of WRMF Morning Show

 

“Like a lot of part-time South Floridians, Anthony splits his time between here and New York. The difference is that he’s not retired. His music is hypnotic and delicious.” — Leslie Gray Streeter / Pop Culture Columnist, The Palm Beach Post
