Tom Griffin

Tom Griffin is an Oxford-based singer songwriter of his own self-styled “Urban Folk-Blues”. Tom’s main influences range from the Delta, Ragtime, Hokum and Piedmont Blues, to artists such as Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Civl Wars and Lead Belly. Through Tom’s fascination in the history steeped in music dating back to the turn of the twentieth century, he began listening to early-blues ukulele players such as Joe Linthecome, Rabbit Muse and Roy Smeck. Tom has found a love for the ukulele and it has now become a staple and popular part of his live repertoire. “When the Dust Settles”, Tom’s first originally written ukulele song is an instrumental piece which he recorded at home and has released as a free download on his website, tomgriffinmusic.com.
