Griff does things the way she sees fit. With her multifaceted approach, she is the kind of modern pop star for whom existing rules are at best an offer that can be taken advantage of - or not. Born and raised in Kings Langley, she began making music as a teenager.
She quickly realized that she was doing things differently - perhaps influenced by her Chinese-Jamaican roots or her all-encompassing approach, which includes songwriting and production as well as fashion and design.
From day one, Griff's learning curve proved similarly unconventional: Before the pandemic hit, she had only played one concert at all (for her DIY EP "Mirror Talk"), yet her lockdown mixtape "One Foot In Front of The Other” – in which she skillfully walked the tightrope between fragility and youthful intrepidity – catapulted Griff from virtually zero to pop stardom while she (like all of us at the time) was stuck in her room.
From there she watched in amazement as “One Foot In Front of The Other” became the first mixtape ever by a female artist to reach the top 5 of the UK charts. Griff has subsequently won the prestigious BRITS Rising Star, two NME Awards and has amassed over 650 million streams to date with her homegrown hits such as "Black Hole".
