Auckland’s Bernie Griffen stepped out into new territory with his second album Salvation, recorded at Auckland’s The Lab studio in May 2014 with The Thin Men. (Cole Goodley (drums, vocals), Brendan Turner (bass, vocals) , Kirsten Warner (guitar and vocals), Bernie Griffen (guitar, banjo , vocals).
The new record sung out like a scream in a quiet night — Bernie’s characters are hard-living and hard-loving, outlaw and savior, the lover and the man in trouble — Bernie Griffen tells tales of adventure, loss and a life hard lived.
And now Bernie Griffen and The Thin Men have a new album coming out in March 2018. Founding member of The Grifters, Bernie has been front and centre of New Zealand’s music scene for nearly two decades, as long-time and well-loved host of 95 bFM’s Border Radio show as well as performer and champion of independent Kiwi music.
