Although Springfield, OH native Griffin House didn't begin playing guitar and writing songs until he was 18, the power of his music struck an emotional connection with audiences immediately. The athletic gifted House shocked his family by turning down a golf scholarship to focus on a new path making music. "Sports were really a big part of me and how I grew up," he says. "So deciding not to take that scholarship was a turning point for me in choosing a new path for myself, a new life making music." There were some issues to deal with first, however - he couldn't play the guitar he'd bought from and friend, nor had he ever written a song. Not long afterward, he wrote his first song for the high school sweetheart with whom he'd parted ways after graduation. When she came for a visit, House played it for her, and it brought her to tears. "Then I was hooked," he says, "I thought, 'Oh, man, if I can make people cry, I'm gonna keep doing this. I'm gonna make as many people cry as I can!'" After laughing at the memory, he puts the experience in perspective: "What I was drawn to was the power of the song, how it could affect people emotionally."
