A little about Mr Griffin. “Bullet”, as he’s known around town, is amusician, artist, producer extraordinaire. He has written for many. His music has been sought after by a few stars in the industry. An unassuming, humble young man, he has abilities and an ear for the extra special which is unique. You can listen to his music on Reverbnation.com and Youtube.com to hear what he’s bringing to the table. He’s currently with, Taila/Music/Publishing and has released independent music under his publishing company. Located in Akron, Ohio, he’s another one of Akron’s best kept secrets. He’s worked with the famous, Al Greene, The Dazz Band, Head Producer and Engineer at Dove Recording, opened for the electric Mr George Clinton and many more. He’s quite capable and I’m super excited to to be working with him.
The 3 song are yet in the inception mode but will be coming down the pipe real soon! As you see, when the machine begans to spit, it’s going to be like the “winner” sign in LasVegas!

I’m back with something from history. I was looking for a little writing inspiration so I broke out my old turn table and dug out some old 45’s I’ve collected over the years and I got lost in time. Some 45’s were as far back as the 60’s with labels and artist names many of the younger crowd wouldn’t recognize like Rene & Angela singing, “Save Your Love” (Part 1) with early Mercury Records, “Going To the Go Go”, Smokey & the Miracles with the Tamala label or Brenda George, “I’m Not Trying To Make You Pay” with Gator Records! WOW! More labels like Hi Records, Deram Records, Soul Records, the Duke Label, Back Beat and O.V. Wright, Josie Records…. Anyone Remember back then?
Oh there were more labels like Apple of which I believe the Beatles recorded with. Then there was Staxx Records and Mr Jonny Taylor singing ” Who’s Making Love”, Gordy Records and the Temptations, “Run Away Child Running Wild”, Bell & James with “Shake Down” and A&M Records. Anything ringing a bell yet? Then how about Tenison Stephens and “Baby I’m A Fool For You” with the Aries Record Label. I had many more like Atlantic Records, Sound Stage Records, Hot Wax Records, SHOUT Records and Mr Freddy Scott “Cry To Me”. Any of you Gospel listeners remember Celestial Records? Here’s one that’s sure to work your mind, “Bad Bill of Goods” by The Glass House and Invictor Records.
I can’t help but to wonder what may have happened to labels like this putting out such great music. Was is it bad management, stiffer competition, marketing, change in times and/or music or all of the above? Muddy Waters and Chess Records, “I’m Still A Fool”… I’m looking through my 45’s just playing them randomly trying to figure it out. Such great music that made your imagination go crazy while your body moved.
Here’s one Stang Records and The Moments singing “Love On A Two Way Street”. I loooooooooved this song as young boy and would cry when I’d hear it on AM radio! I still don’t know why! It just made me sad I guess. Remember, I was a boy of about 9 or 10 years old. Sunday nights after church, of course, I’d turn WAKR on the AM dial and the “Papa Soul Hour” while I was in bed going to sleep. The song affected me as a YOUNG boy….. I wonder how would a song like this reach a young boy or girl of today? Would it touch them like it touched me? Well I could go on because I have pile of 45’s i’m fishing through. Not looking or anything particular but just pulling one at a time out, allowing my memory to refresh as I listen. What was I doing? Where was I at? What were the times. Good music will do that to you. I even remember the artist I made my first child to some 38 years ago! Good music will do that. Its was Barry White! I do know a big chunk of this music was during the Vietnam era. I didn’t tell my age did I? lol Well I believe you get what I’m saying. Go dig up some old 45’s and see what it does for you.

Hello everyone! 🙂 It’s been a long time since I have posted here at Word Press! I’d like to say many new things have happened and are happening. One, I’m now with the award winning Branding firm, Blue-Artists Branding Firm, Washington DC. The great CEO there is Mr. Pierre Walters, an award winning and BET nominated movie director has been great in developing my music Brand along with the very capable co-workers. Then there is my new release which I am so excited about, A Look Into My Heart. It’s produced by Mr. Wes McCraw, Creekside Audio, Norton, Ohio and Mr. Samuel Haygood, N-DA-Groove Productions, Atlanta, GA. What has excited me the most has been it’s acceptance into the IMA Music Awards and the Ohio Music Awards. When I got the news, it blew my mind. This is an independent release. I was Blessed also to perform at the Blaze Indie Urban Upscale Party in Beverly Hills, CA this past November. I was so glad to be there with Ms. LaShaune Turner and radio personality, Big Sean. There was also another radio station in the house also. DARADIOSHOW at 1580 AM and radio host DunDee. Then there are the many news releases, music reviews and articles from sources like CNN i-report, NBC, ABC, and CBS station affiliates, SCOPE Music Magazine, Soul Central Music Magazine and TV in London, England, Jazz Times, Endee Magazine, Rock Thiz Music Magazine and so many more places like Muzic Notez who did a 3 edition interview with me. The project is making it’s own pathway throughout the industry. It has received great reviews from industry insiders too! It’s a project that deals with relationships and the ebbs and flows one might have. It also deals with real life situation. There was recently a press release done connecting the song from this project, It’s Over (the remix) to the abuses in today’s new head lines. Last but not least, the new web site is great! Visit me at WWW.MICHAELEGLETON.COM to learn more about the new project and to keep up with the latest news and events. The you will also see interviews and music videos. I hope to see ya there. Until next time, Handle ya business!
