A New York City-based DJ, producer, and EDM musician, Dan Griffith, who operates under the nom de plume Gryffin, broke waves in 2014 and 2015 with his remixes of Tove Lo’s “Talking Body,” Maroon 5’s “Animals,” and Years & Years’ “Desire.” A classically trained pianist, Griffith honed his musical abilities playing in bands — Gryffin also an accomplished guitar player. Upon graduating with an electrical engineering degree from the University of Southern California, he began immersing himself in music production, eventually relocating to Los Angeles.
In 2016 Gryffin released his debut single, “Heading Home,” which featured Aussie singer Josef Salvat. The Bipolar Sunshine-assisted “Whole Heart” dropped later that August, and in 2017 Gryffin released “Feel Good,” which saw him working with West Coast DJ/producer Illenium and Pittsburgh-based artist Daya. Two more singles, “Love in Ruins” and “Nobody Compares to You,” appeared in 2017, both making strong showings on the Billboard Dance chart. A collaboration with Quinn XCII and Daniel Wilson called “Winnebago” arrived in 2018.
