JW Griffin- 'Summer Sound'

JW Griffin- 'Summer Sound'

JW Griffin is staking his claim for song of the summer, and he has some serious bona fides to back it up. His latest release, "Summer Sound," was picked as the winner of the 2024 Mapco "Song of the Summer." From the moment the first chords strike, you're instantly transported to warm, humid July evenings, with a cool drink in hand and the promise of adventure in the air. The lyrics are packed to the gills with classic southern imagery like "a whippoorwill singing in a willow tree, yeah a backyard barbecue in B.F.E." It embodies everything that makes summertime special – from the carefree melodies to the infectious energy that practically begs you to roll down the windows and sing along at the top of your lungs. And let's talk about JW's voice – it's the perfect balance of gruff and breezy, with a hefty pinch of southern charm. He's the perfect compliment to the twangy guitars and thunderous drums that back him throughout. "Summer Sound" is a sunny dose of serotonin that will satiate the craving for a taste of summer all year round; a feel-good anthem that reminds everyone to embrace the simple pleasures of life and soak in the magic of the season.
