Introducing Griffin Tucker
This artist's name is Griffin Tucker (age 12), hails from Texas, and is a bit of a prodigy. A multi-instrumentalist and vocalist, he was chosen out of many young musicians to tour last summer with Zendaya. He loves the Beatles and has recorded several Beatles covers. He loves the classic rock sound rather than the robotized, mechanized, Auto-Tuned stuff being released by the major labels today. (The latter half of that sentence was my own snarky editorial comment, not Griffin's. A lot of music being released today sets my teeth on edge and my hair on fire. All three of them.
Griffin and his family have a deep love for the Lord, yet choose to release their music in the secular world—a world that needs a Christlike example more than ever these days. He has already released several songs, and today his newest song was released, called "Gotta Get the Girl." You can check it out and download it here. For the original songs, Griffin writes the music and his mother, Kimberly, writes the lyrics.
So let me offer a fedora hat tip to Griffin and family, and recommend that you download his available music. I think you'll love him, and by God's grace, I think the future holds wonderful things in store.
