UK Singer songwriter Alistair Griffin is developing a growing reputation as the “go to” songwriter for the nation’s big sporting moments. A native of the North East, Alistair’s music is chosen time and again by global media organisations to soundtrack iconic sporting events from ice hockey to tennis, golf to Rugby League, Formula One to The Olympics, to name but a few.
Alistair first came to prominence on the BBC’s Fame Academy where he was championed by Bee Gee Robin Gibb. The two had a top 10 hit together and Alistair went on to tour with Robin in Europe as well as writing together. He re-emerged with a new album ‘Albion Sky’ and shortly after his song ‘Just Drive’ became an instant hit with F1 fans, going viral championed by both Jake Humphrey and Chris Evans. ‘Just Drive’ has had over 3 million YouTube hits to date and is the current F1 theme tune on Sky Sports F1.
“A unique talent – Robin Gibb”
Alistair’s star rose again when his song ‘What If’ was used to soundtrack Andy Murray’s historic Wimbledon and the BBC voted it as their Number 1 montage track. The International Olympic Committee requested Alistair’s music to sound track their favourite Olympic moments, and he is currently writing a tune for The World Athletics Championships.
Alistair’s proudest moment arrived as the Tour de France came to Yorkshire in 2014 as he penned and performed the Official Anthem, “The Road” for Yorkshire’s Grand Depart alongside Kimberley Walsh.
Alistair has just released his new album The Boy, The Rocket and The World.
