Since first breaking onto the global scene, Gryffin has cemented his status as one of the most crowd-thrilling and forward-thinking producers in the dance/electronic world. Along with delivering a steady stream of smash singles (including platinum-certified hits like “Tie Me Down” ft. Elley Duhé) and making his full-length debut with Gravity (a 2019 release that quickly shot to #1 on Billboard’s Dance/Electronic Albums chart), the Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist has earned his name as an unforgettable live act, endlessly tapping into the sophisticated musicality he’s honed as a classically trained pianist and longtime guitarist. As he continues his massively successful residency at The Wynn’s Encore Beach Club and XS Nightclub in Las Vegas, Gryffin now returns with his hotly anticipated sophomore album 

Alive and a national headlining tour, including stops at such legendary venues as Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Los Angeles State Historic Park—an auspicious constellation of events sure to make 2022 his biggest year yet.

In a departure from the future-bass-leaning aesthetic of Gravity—an acclaimed project whose standout tracks include the gold-certified “All You Need to Know” with SLANDER ft. Calle Lehmann—Alive embodies a more euphoric and dance-ready sound without sacrificing any of the raw emotion that makes Gryffin’s music so beloved. As Gryffin’s most sonically eclectic work yet, Alive finds the Bay Area-bred musician working with a dynamic lineup of collaborators: GRAMMY®-nominated alt-rock/pop band OneRepublic, Danish electro-pop icon MØ, R&B singer/songwriter Tinashe, and indie-pop phenom Olivia O’Brien, to name just a few. “This album’s a really great combination of artists I’ve wanted to work with for a long time and artists I’ve worked with for years and feel a strong connection with,” says Gryffin, whose repeat collaborators include Maia Wright and Calle Lehmann. “In both cases it’s been amazing to work with people who have a very specific vision, and to figure out how to bring that to life while retaining my own vision at the same time.”

Born Dan Griffith, he first discovered his musical side by taking up piano at age seven and later learned guitar, playing in several bands throughout high school. While studying electrical engineering at the University of Southern California, he taught himself production and soon gained attention for his ingenious remixes of songs like Years & Years’ “Desire,” eventually inking a deal with Interscope Records. In 2016, he broke through with two singles showcasing his deeply melodic take on dance music: “Heading Home” ft. Josef Salvat (which shot to #1 on Spotify’s US and Global Viral charts) and the gold-certified Bipolar Sunshine collaboration “Whole Heart.” Scoring his first platinum record with 2017’s “Feel Good” (with Illenium and featuring Daya), Gryffin continued making waves with hits like “Remember” ft. Zohara (a cut from Gravity that amassed 6.5 million streams in its first few weeks alone).
