Jimmy Griffin grew up in Memphis, Tennessee and was one of three collaborating songwriters (under the pseudonym Arthur James) of the Academy Award-winning song "For All We Know" which won Best Song from the movie "Lovers and Other Strangers."
Accomplished singer, songwriter and musician, he teamed up with Michael Z. Gordon in the early 1960s to write over sixty songs, forty of which were recorded by major artists including Ed Aames, Gary Lewis, Bobby Vee, Brian Hyland, The Standells, Leslie Gore, Sandy Nelson and Cher. Gordon and Griffin's "Apologize" earned them a BMI Award for Best Male Vocalist. The duo also wrote the chart-topping, "Love Machine".
Griffin was one of the founding members, vocalist, lead guitarist, songwriter and co-producer for the sensational rock group Bread, which scored over a dozen top-ten singles. After retiring from Bread, he later became a member of the successful country bands, the Remingtons and Black Tie.
