How does a 16-year-old rock musician crack today’s music code of formulaic beats and electronia?
First, he must have a disobedient music spirit that can surpass the industry saturated by musicians chasing beats. Second, he must obtain enough cultural significance as most famous rockers have done in stirring passion and deconstruction of the norm.
Griffin Tucker and his “no excuses” rock act doesn’t conform to his predecessors. Instead, he’s created his own musical path for his “GrifFANS”.
Griffin’s talent can’t be contained in a pop act. His legacy of stage experience started at 8 years of age and has continued with a full cycle of alternating years learning to play each instrument of rock. And he’s played hundreds of shows: at 11, he toured with Disney artist Zendaya, plus he’s played as a solo artist at The House of Blues, The Granada, The Gas Monkey, Gilley’s, and Westfield Presents London just to name a few. He was also selected to be in the Beatles documentary, “Scream & Shout:
31 Days That Changed America Forever”.
At the age of 13, he won the Texas Ten under Twenty guitar competition at the Dallas International Guitar Festival. But make no mistake – he is equally equipped on drums, piano, bass, mandolin and ukulele to name a few. And he can sing too! As a contestant on The Voice, the judges couldn’t believe when they whisked their chairs around to see a very young talented rock guitarist accompanied by a mature voice characterized by riffs, emotion and control.
In 2016 and in 2017, Griffin won 3 categories at London’s prestigious Fab Charts Awards for best vocalist, best video and best song! In 2017, he was nominated by his fans to be Indie guitarist of the year in London and won by a landslide. He was also nominated in 3 out of 3 categories at Nashville’s famed JOSIE Awards for Artist of the Year, Entertainer of the Year & Vocalist of the Year. And last, but not least, Griffin was asked to join the prestigious BROTHERHOOD of the GUITAR!
“Believe It”, Griffin’s debut EP, dropped this summer and was an instant GrifFAN fave. The album rocks like none you’ve heard in recent times! And, when you start to wonder how many great musicians helped bring this amazing album to life, you will be awestruck to learn that the answer is ONE: Griffin Tucker – an extremely talented emerging rock artist that plays, sings and writes it ALL.
