“Griffths’ singing was superb. His intricate attention to detail, from the keyboard to the storyline he was imparting, was masterful.” -Rip It Up

‘Griffths is a rare and wonderful performer. He creates a sense of togetherness in the room, reminding audiences that pop songs aren’t popular because they’re ordinary or vacuous, but because of the joy and connectedness that they inspire in the people who hear them.” –ArtsHub
