Erik "Blu2th" Griggs, born in Ohio, raised in St. Louis MO, has been a musician as long as he can remember. He started playing the Piano as a toddler and never stopped. During college, he took up the Guitar and Bass. You've heard him play all three instruments on records from the Dreamgirls soundtrack to Omarion, Tyrese to K-Ci, Charlie Wilson to Jordin Sparks.
His biggest song to date is "No Air", with
Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown. He has worked with the likes of The
Underdogs, Tim & Bob, Babyface, Boyz II Men, El DeBarge, and Dr Dre to name a few. In his first three
years in the Los Angeles music scene, his work earned him a People’s Choice award, a
BMI Song of the Year award, and a Grammy nomination.
Considering the fact that he moved to Los Angeles in 2005 with only a guitar and a suitcase, he is clearly one of the most upwardly mobile producer/writers in the game.
