Younger brother Kevin Jordan completes the band's "sonic creativity" on guitar and provides background vocals and co-writes many of their songs.) with special guests.

The Ries Brothers started playing the Florida bar circuit as young teenagers where they were discovered by the band Chicago and taken out on two tours prompting them to leave school and focus on music full-time.

The Brothers inimitable live performances have captured fans across the musical landscape leading to marquee support slots and major festival bookings. After Supporting a G Love & Special Sauce tour in 2018, G Love asked the brothers to tour as his backing band and open his solo tour. They repeated that feat again in 2019. In between, the brothers completed their own solo tours in addition to supporting major artists like Stick Figure, 311 (invited to perform on the 311 cruise immediately after opening for 311), Ballyhoo, Pepper, Galactic, Stephen Marley, and playing major festivals Rootfire, Cali Roots, Gasparilla, Sun Fest, and Summer Camp.

The duo recently completed their second full-length album, Paint Your Emotion, produced by John Agnello (Screaming Trees, Dinosaur JR, Patti Smythe). The new record leans towards alternative rock, showcasing the energy one would find at a Ries Brothers live show. A live streaming only EP of the duo's Sugar Shack Sessions was released in Fall of 2019 on Ineffable Records to accompany their current national tour with Iya Terra, while the new album will be released in early 2020.

The Ries Brothers have been named as a breakout artist by Creative Loafing, a favorite band by The Tampa Bay Times, and were two out of 25 selected from the state of Florida to participate in the exclusive Los Angeles Grammy Museumís Music Revolution Project. There is truly something going on here. Come on down to a live show to see for yourself.

Griffin House
Tuesday, May 5
Doors 7:00pm, $25/$30
Asbury Cafe and the Saint Present From Nashville, TN, Griffin House (New Release "Rising Star" Out Now).

A seated no talking during the performances show. Coffee, tea, beer and spirits served all night.

"Rising Star" is not a phrase one would normally use to describe an artist like Griffin House, who has been touring for more than 15 years and has recorded over 12 studio albums. RISING STAR Documentary: https://tinyurl.com/AmazonRisingStar.

The title of House's current release, Rising Star, references the first track on the album which tells the story of a character who moves to Music City, like so many do, with a guitar and a dream. Although not intended to be autobiographical, the listener gets the sense that this comical and fictitious tale could hardly have been woven by someone without a similar life experience to the protagonist in Rising Star.

Indeed, House's story began in much the same way. Moving to Nashville as a young man in 2003 with not much more than a guitar and a handful of songs, he took a part time job downtown at a Broadway gift shop, biding his time before he caught his big break. That big break came after just a few months, in the form of a phone call from Island Def Jam Records, which jumpstarted his career and led to him signing with CAA and Nettwerk Records.

After that, things happened quickly for House. His 2004 debut album Lost and Found was lauded by music critics such as Bill Flanagan (Executive VP MTV/VH1 Networks) who featured House on the CBS Sunday Morning show as one of the "best emerging songwriters." He began touring, opening for acts like John Mellencamp and The Cranberries, and found himself meeting people like Bruce Springsteen and Willie Nelson. By all accounts, House seemed poised to be more of an "overnight success" rather than a "rising star" - but that's not exactly how things turned out. "I've been a "rising star" for the past 15 years" House jokes, "It's a slow rise."

RISING STAR Documentary - Released Nov 2019

"Rising Star captures life on the road for singer/songwriter Griffin House, an artist who has navigated the ups and downs of a 15 year music career. Throughout the film, we witness the everyday struggles of tour life, as Griffin wrestles with raising a family, maintaining sobriety, and finding the spark to keep the music alive."
