Ken Griffin: Skinnied out, reborn in Brooklyn, now coming home with Favourite Sons.
Half a lifetime in Brooklyn, and Ken Griffin’s still referred to as ex-Rollerskate Skinny. Favourite Sons’ second album The Great Deal of Love should put paid to that. Years of bartending, people-watching and soaking up the nightlife, low-life and half-life of New York City gave the now 40-year-old musician the kind of insights that can best be articulated in a conventional song structure. And if the new album will be born into a post-music industry world, well, Griffin isn’t fazed.
The Great Deal of Love is out now on Low Rent Recordings.
