-London's Best EVents-

Following hot on the heels of her recent BRIT award success, Griff is bringing her intoxicating mix of punchy pop and relatable lyrics to O2’s Shepherds Bush Empire in October 2021.

The gig, which forms part of the singer’s One Foot In Front Of The Other’ UK tour, will see the UK artist showcase a selection of tracks from her mixtape of the same name.

With a spate of singles under her belt, the artist has racked up an impressive array of accolades, with the Brit Rising Star award being merely the latest. In just eighteen months, Griff has also been nominated for an Ivor Novello Rising Star Award, as well as coming fifth in the BBC’s Sound of 2021 list.

Her BRIT award success saw the artist beat an impressive list of up and coming young musicians to the prize during a spectacular awards show at the O2 arena. Griff later crowned her big night out by performing recent hit single Black Hole at the event.

The artist, whose real name is Sarah Faith Griffiths, was bitten by the music bug at an early age. After discovering the Taylor Swift album Fearless at the tender age of 8, Griff taught herself to use the music recording software on her brother’s laptop before using it to record her first songs.

At the age of 17, Griff signed her first record deal. She later admitted that she tried desperately to keep her musical success a secret from her school friends, albeit in vain. The singer’s debut single, Mirror Talk, arrived two years later.

Since that early release, Griff has released a series of impressive singles (Black Hole, One Foot In Front Of The Other) that have not just announced her arrival on the music scene but also confirmed that the singer needs to be taken seriously.

Griff will be at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on the of October 2021. More information about the gig can be found here.
