Discovery: Griffo & Lord

Griffo & Lord are a song writing duo based in Chicago, USA whose new track It’s Okay To Be Sad At Christmas has a fresh take on the holiday ballad.

By Graeme Smith

Written for those who struggle to get into the seasonal mood around Christmastime, It’s Okay To Be Sad At Christmas beautifully articulates the feeling of being a little off while those around you seem to be full of joy. Ultimately, it’s a message of hope, a declaration that you’re not alone in feeling blue. That message is delivered through beautiful vocal harmonies and a dramatic strings and piano arrangement.

Perhaps best known for their cult hit Jersey Shore: The Musical, Matt Griffo and Jason Lord have worked on a number of musical adjacent projects together, including an album of “fake collaborations”.
