No One Wants to Be Lonely
Griffin's debut, "No one wants to be lonely" is a must have for anyone who has ever had a broken heart. His acoustic based pop/rock CD examines Love, love lost, and love that will never be. It's all in there. From the first song "Who's gonna love you now" to the hidden track "Fall" you'll be pulled in over and over by Griffin's use of lyric and melody. With one listen, you will know these are songs from the heart. A perfect addition to any CD collection. Review Strictly for Connoisseurs Griffin â?? No One Wants To Be Lonely, demo, 1999 [Similarities: Edwin McCain, Gin Blossoms, Toad The Wet Sprocket] You know, I am becoming increasingly harder to impress. Not so much to the point of hearing something and thinking it's pretty good, but to be flat out amazedâ?¦those discs are fewer and further between. Griffin has come pretty close to both amazing and impressing, and this is nothing more than a demo, which speaks volumes on the strengths of good songwriting. Griffin's style is best described as acoustic driven pop, with both ballads and rockers receiving fair treatment. Though it slows down a bit towards the end, it's hard to deny songs like "Who's Gonna Love You Now", the very romantic "She Can Take Me" and the up-tempo "Shadow Of Doubt" their proper due. Singer John Griffin has a great silky smooth voice that fits the music perfectly. This is certainly an act to keep your ears out for. Kurt Torster.
