“In his debut studio album titled “Fort Worth to Bakersfield” Steve’s songwriting reveals his roots, steeped in the influences of outlaw and traditional country and Americana music. His lyrics paint a picture of life – of both good-times and bad. Steve was recently released from federal prison after serving some 22 years on drug conspiracy charges. It’s easy to recognize, through these well-constructed songs, melodies, instrumentation, layered harmonies, style and lyrics, that Steve is comfortably at home and accompanied by some of the most talented musicians currently in the country music scene. While some of Griggs’ songs are light-hearted, like: “Lord, I shoulda’ known better”, others reflect the sometimes pure, hard truth of life, and may cut close to the bone, like: ”You Can’t Turn Back the Hands of Time”, “Prison Blues” or “You’ll never see me cryin’”. All these songs were written while Griggs served his prison sentence. Griggs’ unique life experiences provide him a full palate with which to paint his picture in song.
