Music Spotlight: Gryffin
You may know his remixes of Tove Lo, BANKS, Years & Years, and Maroon 5. What you may not know is that multi-instrumentalist/producer, Gryffin, started his musical journey at age seven; like a lot of us, with piano and guitar lessons. Unlike a lot of us, he took his talents further and eventually taught himself how to produce. From there, he was able to combine his musical skills with his love for EDM by putting his own twist on things. Remixes naturally followed, helping him break into the spotlight.
How would you describe your sound and has it changed throughout the years?
I would describe my sound as melodic and uplifting dance music. My sound has evolved from the early days of the Gryffin project as I used to primarily produce house music, but then started to dabble into other genres like future bass as I began producing more and more originals.
What led you to make music?
I’ve always been doing some sort of musical activity since I learned the piano when I was little. After piano, I picked up the guitar and played in a few bands, but I was in college when I learned about producers like Skrillex, Avicii, and deadmau5 and would produce electronic music in my free time when I would be bored studying for engineering exams.
What are you currently working on?
I’m currently working on finishing my debut album. I’ve really tried to push myself creatively on putting forth the best album possible which I’m really excited to show everyone.
Dream collaboration(s) and why?
Few of my dream collaborations would be Florence Welch, MGMT, and Post Malone. I have a wide variety of tastes and I think that any of those three would be really cool to make a fresh sounding record with.
One thing you don’t ever leave the road without?
My headphones. Pretty obvious one, but I’m always working on music on the road and would not be able to function without them.
Outside of music, what are you most passionate about and why?
I’m a major basketball and Golden State Warriors fan. I’ve always been a fan of basketball, ever since I was little. I grew up in the Bay; so, by default, I’m a Warriors fan.
Cats or dogs?

I’m still struggling. I’ll try to make this brief, please read and share. Thank you.
As some of you know, a couple months ago my boyfriend of seven years passed away suddenly. I watched him get carried away by an ambulance one night and be told he wouldn’t make it the very same night. It completely destroyed my life to lose him, to watch him laying lifeless in a hospital bed when one day before I was seeing his beautiful smile full of life. Immediately after, I had to move in with my parents to a different state, leaving behind my home, job, and life with him. I lost everything. I was put under great debt from funeral and travel costs, bills, and starting a new life. We were not married, so the law decided all of his possessions would go to his parents, leaving me with nothing. They took our car, our belongings, and our life savings which we put together into his bank account. His homophobic parents were never there for him, they never loved their gay son, so for them to get what we worked hard for crushed me, leaving me into a worse state of depression than I was.
My depression has gotten so bad, even after months of losing him, it still hurts to breathe everyday. I can’t admit this to my family, but I’ve been struggling with suicidal thoughts to this day. I know it hurts them to see me this way, always tired, sad, and hopeless. It hurts me to know they have to see it too. So here I am again, asking for help. If anybody out there can spare even $5 that would mean so much to me. Please, I know it’s been a month since I last asked for help, and I hate asking again, but I’m still struggling so badly. I can’t keep living like this, under this debt, these bills, and I’m working on it myself too, but life is so hard right now. I could use any help out there.
If anything, please reblog. Thank you so much.
