(United Kingdom)

Griff is a one-woman production, songwriting and visual powerhouse, who – on the strength of her debut ‘The Mirror Talk EP’ alone, not to mention her signature bubble ponytail – is already honing future-pop powers. On the one hand, Griff is your textbook girl next door: a straight-A student from just outside of Watford, who recently graduated from school. On the other, she is already showcasing a wisdom beyond her years, with songs that carefully examine those highs and lows of modern teenage life. Born to Chinese and Jamaican parents, Griff was brought up alongside two brothers and the family’s foster children, in and amongst which she found quiet by borrowing her brother’s Logic, teaching herself how to make music, and writing songs in secret from her classmates. Indeed, the first time many of them knew Griff was making music occurred when they heard Annie Mac gave ‘Mirror Talk’ its first play.
