An Oconomowoc, WI native, Griffin Peterson was raised on the water and grew up with a love for music.
Despite his early found love of playing music , it wasn’t it wasn’t until college in Nashville, TN that Griffin realized his gift for translating his emotions and words into music. After hearing songs Griffin had started to write, a friend encouraged him to audition for American Idol where he went on to the Hollywood Rounds.
Shortly after, New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover contacted Griffin to collaborate on a project writing an original album for her upcoming novel, Maybe Someday. Maybe Someday was released in March 2014. The album hit the Billboard Heat-seeker Chart and held the number two spot on the iTunes singer songwriter chart for two weeks straight. The success of Maybe Someday led Griffin to write two more songs in conjunction with Colleen’s follow up books, "Ugly Love" and "November 9".
Following this success, Griffin set to work on his sophomore album, “From All Sides”. Partnering with Nashville producer Nick Steele, they worked to bring together a collection of song ideas that spanned multiple styles and themes. Speaking on the new album, Griffin said, “Every song had its own blueprint but, but we went about it in a natural way – feeling out each song and seeing what production felt good on it and where it lent itself.” The title of the album represents the multiple musical directions and stories being told from multiple perspectives.
