Alistair Griffin

Hailing from the north-east of England, Alistair Griffin is a singer-songwriter whose own brand of indie pop has gained him fans far and wide and attracted the attention and praise of musical legends as auspicious and diverse as BeeGee Robin Gibb and the prince of darkness himself, Ozzie Osborne. Gibb, who discovered Alistair on a BBC Television talent search, described him as “a unique talent” and proved the point by writing and dueting with Griffin, reaching No5 in the UK charts. Won over by his anarchic sense of humour, as well as his music, Ozzie said, “This guy’s the dog’s bollocks”Griffin’s style moves from anthemic indie pop with big choruses, through to thoughtful, acoustic, folk influenced songs. It’s this diversity and depth that makes him interesting and gives him wide appeal and perhaps what prompted Simon Cowell to say, “He’s excellent, I think he’s very commercial.”High praise indeed and a long way from the guy who left his North Yorkshire village for London, with only a guitar in his hand, his Dad’s jumper on his back and his Grandma’s shoes on his feet. Griffin went out and plied his trade on the streets of Notting Hill, playing outside its many bars and cafes. It was here, while busking on Portabello Market, that Griffin was spotted by the producer Trevor Horn. Impressed by his talent, he signed Griffin to his publishing company Perfect Songs.For the last 18 months he has been penning songs for other artists, scoring hits all over Europe including a No 1 in Holland, establishing his pedigree as a proven hit writer. Along side his song writing Alistair also writes and performs comedy and has recently been snapped up by the BBC to write and perform in a new project. Alistair now plans to re-launch his solo career with a new album, packed full of perfect pieces of indie pop.
