Electrifying Country singer-songwriter RYAN GRIFFIN fuses the soul of R&B, the honesty of Country and the carefree fun of Pop with the release of three new tracks.
“Good Company,” “Play It By Heart” and “Best Cold Beer” are now available globally for purchase and via all digital streaming services including Amazon Music, Apple Music and Spotify. Moreover, “Best Cold Beer” is now spinning on Spotify’s prominent New Music Friday playlist.
Produced by genre-defying hit maker busbee (Maren Morris, Gwen Stefani), the Country three-pack highlights a distinctive sonic mix which lands somewhere between Keith Urban and Brian McKnight, and also builds on the Florida native’s acclaimed reputation as a skilled songwriter. As a co-writer of Kelsea Ballerini’s “Dibs,” the PLATINUM-certified #1 tunesmith is ready to show off his own spotlight-grabbing potential.
“This is the music I’ve always wanted to make and I’m grateful to have a team that whole-heartedly believes in it,” says Griffin. “Working with busbee has brought out the best in me as an artist and a songwriter and I’m so thankful the world will get to hear the songs we’ve poured our hearts and souls into.”
“Ryan Griffin represents everything that makes the Country genre a uniquely impactful and diverse musical space,” adds busbee. “His vocal and songwriting abilities convey genuine emotion and a true sense of craft that rival the best artists in the format.”
Griffin previously gained recognition with his SAKE OF THE SUMMER EP, as “Backseats & Burnt CDs” was featured on SiriusXM as a Highway Find in 2017. The EP’s vulnerable ballad “Woulda Left Me Too” has been streamed more than 5 million times on Spotify, landing on the platform’s all-genre Viral 50 – US chart.
Griffin has been named as one of Rolling Stone’s 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know, and is currently featured on 2018 Ones to Watch lists by AOL, AXS, Country Fancast, NY Country Swag, PopDust and Thought Catalog. He’s served as an opening act for chart-topping artists like Ballerini, Lady Antebellum, Old Dominion and more, and will be touring select festival dates this summer, including a stop at Country Stampede in Manhattan, Kansas, on June 21.
