The Hope Griffin Band
“Surely her songs are inspired by nature — her voice rings of bird calls and high vistas; she can morph from breathy to velvety in the span of a note.”- Alli Marshall, Mountain Xpress
Voted best Acoustic/Folk artist and Singer-songwriter in Western North Carolina in 2016, 2017, and 2018, Alaska-born singer/songwriter Hope Griffin has been labeled as one of the sweethearts of Asheville’s local music scene. She is well known for her free spirited stage presence, velvety vocals, and heart wrenching ballads, all delivered behind her hauntingly beautiful acoustic guitar playing. Armed with a strong musical heritage and a 4 year degree in classical voice, Hope delivers a robust and emotional performance that may make you laugh and bring you to tears in the same breath. She is a veteran of the stage, having performed on them since she was old enough to hold a microphone. She is often seen in various combinations, most often with her bandmate and cellist of 6+ years Jamie Leigh Bennett.
