Tony, Julie and Jamie have known since childhood that they were called to ministry. Each of them grew up singing with their family groups and being in leadership at their home churches. In 2006, Julie came on the road with The Griffith Family and two years later, she and Tony were married. After a few years of being on the road, there was a period of time when Tony and Julie decided they needed to take a break from the road and get spiritually fed for a while. During that time, God moved them into a season for just that. God had ministered and moved in both Tony and Julie’s lives in the most powerful way they had ever seen. They experienced first hand how God answers prayers and how He would strengthen and prepare them for what He was about to do in their ministry.
In August of 2014 Tony and Julie felt that God was impressing on their hearts to return to the road, 2 months later the new Griffith Family was formed.
The Griffith Family has seen some major steps take place, including a relocation to the Nashville, TN area as they transitioned to a full-time touring schedule shortly after their ministry began.
The group’s debut, self-titled album features songs from some of Southern Gospel’s best songwriters like Marty Funderburk, Daryl Williams, Rebecca Peck, Glen Bates along with Tony Griffith contributing his writing talents to the album. The first single from the project debuted in the Singing News Top 80 chart and the album was released in September by Mansion Entertainment through its Sony RED distribution relationship.
Their sophomore project, ‘Give His Love Away’, was released in 2016 and includes a guest appearance by Adam Crabb. The Griffith Family also completed a tour that same year with Adam. The release of this project followed with radio and television appearances including an appearance on TBN’s Praise The Lord.
More importantly, The Griffith Family share a personal message in their live appearances that resonates with listeners needing to know the love and grace of God. Their touring schedule has taking them across the United States and Canada into churches, various concert venues and stepping onto high profile stages such as the South Carolina Songfest in Spartanburg, SC, appearances at The National Quartet Convention and numerous appearances at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN. Label Manager, John Mathis of Mansion Entertainment, summed up the growing requests for appearances by the group, “The Griffith Family has a performance style that appeals to people’s musical tastes but they have a way of sharing in person that is appealing to their hearts.”
