Altadena/Warner Records/Warner Music Nashville recording artist Ryan Griffin is poised for his breakout moment as he gears up for the 8/28 release of his major label debut EP, Name On It. The Platinum-certified hitmaker, who co-wrote Kelsea Ballerini’s No. 1 hit “Dibs,” has already shared several of the tracks that will be featured on the project, including his live-for-today anthem “Right Here Right Now” and the home run hit “Going Going Gone.” His most recent track, “One Prayer Left,” reminds listeners to stay present and appreciate even the small blessings of life.
“Name On It is a collection of moments in my life that I’m proud to put my name on,” explains Griffin. “It’s the lessons that have taught me to love deeper, to soak up the little things, to pray harder, to be grateful and most of all to be proud of who I am."
A genre-defying talent, Griffin’s music fuses pop, soul and R&B with the honest universality of country to forge a romantic mix landing somewhere between Keith Urban and Brian McKnight. Receiving critical praise from outlets including People, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Entertainment Tonight and more, the heart-forward up-and-comer continues to seize his moment as a star on the cusp with his stunning vocals and hardwired emotional connection on full blast.
Since moving to Music City at the age of 17 after growing up on his family’s farm in Florida, Griffin has grabbed his own artistic attention with fans across multiple music sharing platforms. Featured as a SiriusXM Highway Find, he has racked up more than 20 million streams in the U.S. alone with independently released track including the infectious “Woulda Left Me Too,” “Best Cold Beer” and “Play It By Heart.” He recently toured with Old Dominion for their Make It Sweet Tour and hit the road with Carly Pearce this past fall.
