    Griz – The Secret in the Garden was definitely one of the top Philly local albums of the year. He’s a gifted artist and great person and everyone should give it a listen. You are sure to fall in love.

    Mike, the Griz album is great! I’m hoping to work with him next year for a Key session…stay tuned.
