Griff"s Brief Biography
2021 Will be the most exciting year of my life. I will be featured in the annual Marquis Who's Who Publication featuring noted people from all walks of life that have reached heights of accomplishments!
To be brief, I have been a geologist in the oilfields from offshore Louisiana to Northern Lower Michigan. I grew tired of that and paid for my lessons to become a pilot owning all the ratings there are to own except for specific airplanes. I wrote many articles for "Flying" magazine and had 14 books published by TAB/McGraw-Hill on Flying and more. I flew more than 20 years for Republic Airlines which merged into Northwest Airlines and Finally Delta Airlines. I finished as a Captain retiring in 2015.
My artwork is displayed elsewhere where I pioneered, maybe even originated a style called "Paintography" in 1993. My album covers are representative of that original style.
Besides my careers I have always been a musician from age 14 till the present and I am now in my 70s. It's never too late to follow your dreams! Just below, you will find my newest songs written and recorded in my studio in Colorado. And yes, I am a recording engineer as well. I hope you enjoy laid back music. It's not the hot "thang" right now, but it really is intended for backgrounds in movies and commercials. I'm not looking for a placement on the "Top 40." I hope you will listen and contact me if you would like to do that. Thanks for even reading this. Thank you for your time and I would love to hear from you.
J Griff Griffin or to some Capn Griff!
