Music Changes Everything: Journey To G-snacks

New drama series from Hallmark King and Rick Chymes are just a few inspirations for Traverse City native, Erik Griffin. Graduating from Western in Kalamazoo with Business Economics and currently working with his father in the family business, Eriks first love was the trumpet, now the electric and acoustic guitar. I would love to make a living playing music, Erik stated, Create music that will stay around for years, you know, like those classics. At ten, the trumpet lasted Erik up until he discovered guitar in high school more and jamming every hour with Kellen for credit. It was high school when he learned he wanted to tour with bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Primus and perform. Do something youre passionate about, Erik said, and stick with it.

Attending the Music Institute for one-year in California, on a mission to find himself, Jimmy returned to Northern Michigan to attend Interlochen Center for the Arts, where he performed and honed his skills for the keyboard, drums, guitar and voice.
