Growing up just outside of Monroe, NC, Ellis Griffin credits his grandpa, whom he lived with at a young age, for his love of country music. Some of his fondest memories are hearing classic tunes on his truck radio while delivering cattle to auction.
Ellis’ taste in country music never changed. Artists like George Strait, Randy Travis, and Josh Turner, are just a few who continue to influence his writing and vocal style today. His strong baritone voice and gentle, unassuming demeanor are a breath of fresh air. With his tall, thin build, southern drawl, and genuine smile it’s easy to tell that Ellis loves to sing, and loves country music.
