Moments / Tides is a song I wrote at the beginning of the surf season here in Oregon. I’d been away from the coast for half a year due to weather and building Casa Pequeña (my tiny house). I’d forgotten how much life and clarity being in the ocean gives me. I’m hopeful that through the song and video, people can get a taste of what it’s like gliding over the water.
We asked Griff to share his top Road Trip songs for your weekend outing. Don’t worry, we added Moments / Tides, listen to the Spotify playlist below…
Originally from Tennessee, Griff currently lives in a Tiny House with his pup Sadie in the mountains of Oregon. When not on the road touring, Griff and Sadie are off enjoying the outdoors in the great Pacific Northwest. Snow, surf, and trails are plenty to occupy them in their offseason. Griff has seemed to have picked up on the brighter parts of life. Parting ways with social status and relevance, he’s discovered how wonderful living day by day is. Making music to Griff is less a climb to the top, as it is a form of free-thinking and enjoyment.
Recorded earlier this year as part of the Roam from Home podcast, Cory and CJ talk with Griff about his origin story, including where the name GothBabe comes from. His pathway to success as a musician started with a short stint in New York City that quickly led to a realization that the rat race was not for him. He led moved into a Ford Explorer and drove west to find a new path. Creating music for years on his own out of his car, living simply and honing his craft.
