She has also recorded tracks with artists like Frankie Valli, Benny Mardones, George Clinton, and Horn Dogz.
The artist’s musical roots go way back. Mary Griffin began singing even before she hit grade school. Her father was a traveling preacher from central Louisiana. Mary grew up with three sisters. In college, she would take up a bachelor’s degree in Performing Arts at Grambling State University and further pursue a master’s degree in the same practice. One of her most significant breaks came when Curb Records signed her on a deal. She spent ten years under the company’s management and guidance and recorded multiple songs that became global hits. Later on, she would move on to Barry Manilow & Stiletto Management.
One of Mary’s most significant accomplishments to date was garnering a nomination in the Grammy Awards, a feat achieved by only the top percentile of musicians in the entire globe. She has participated in twenty-one platinum records across her career and joined multiple tours, including tours for Patti LaBelle for thirteen years and George Clinton for seven years.
On top of her recording and touring success, Mary Griffin has also dipped her finger in movie soundtracks. She played a role in the movie “Studio 54” as an artist named Amii Stewart, where she sang “Knock On Wood” for the movie’s soundtrack. She also has performances in other hit films such as “Conspiracy Theory,” “Driven,” “Coyote Ugly,” and “Ballistic X vs Sever.”
In recent times, Mary has started working with legendary Houston, Texas-based executive producer Chadd Black.
