Vocalist Nastasia Griffin grew up in Asheville but is currently based in Los Angeles pursuing her music career. (Read about other former locals now working in the arts in LA in this week’s cover story.) Griffin is signed to Sony/ATV and recently released her single, “Here in My Skin.” Listen to it below.
Griffin will release her debut album later this year — but she’s already been making serious inroads. “Here in My Skin” was featured on season two of “Being Mary Jane;” earlier placements include a song on the reality show “Still Standing.” Her song “Look in the Mirror” was included on the album 18 and Alive by country artist Chelsea Lea.
