Whitman had nature. Fellini had dreams. And Griffin Robillard? He had capitalism and a beat up telecaster.

He's heard it all. Brooklyn is over. We’ll need to leave the planet. There's more "space" in LA. With his “deep, slightly-creepy-but-inviting Bryan Ferry-ish” voice over driving disco, his music sits right where lyricism meets power pop (American Songwriter). Paste Magazine called him “relaxed coolness” with “John Denver’s heart” and the “lyrical themes that conjure the cool darkness of Nick Cave."

The New York native's latest EP, Love Songs For Repressed People, was produced by Walker Lukens with appearances from members of The Bright Light Social Hour and Jim Eno.
