Detroit's own R&B singer/songwriter, Beth, announces the release of her debut single, "Pillow Talk" on her Indie label, Anise Records. "Pillow Talk" is available now for download on all digital music platforms. Beth is currently completing her much-anticipated debut solo EP. She also continues to tour as a background singer for KEM, and is a co-host on the "Greg Davis Show" on 910 AM Superstation radio in Detroit.





Beth previously toured the world as a background vocalist for Anita Baker for five years and was a featured singer at the "Tribute to Motown" show at Carnegie Hall, alongside Dionne Warwick, Anita Baker, Martha Reeves, Melba Moore, Boyz II Men, Dennis Edwards, Bebe Winans, and Paul Shaffer.

She has also had the privilege of having performed at the Michigan Inaugural Balls held in Washington D.C. for President Barack Obama's 1st and 2nd terms, as well as for President Bill Clinton and President-Elect, Donald Trump.

Beth has provided vocals on several CDs, including KEM's Intimacy, What Christmas Means and Promise To Love projects and Yolanda Adams' Christmas album, What A Wonderful Time and Rock-n-Roll Hall of Famer, Dave Mason's project, 26 Letters, 12 Notes on the song, "How Do I Get to Heaven."

In addition to her roles as a vocalist, Beth is a member of SAG-AFTRA and has held several stage and screen acting roles. Among them, Church Girl and Chosen (stage) and Five Year Engagement and This Must Be The Place (film), as well as performing on numerous television and radio commercials.

Her most memorable moment on stage was being cast in the 2011 remake of the movie, "Sparkle" as the stand-in and body-double for Whitney Houston, during filming in Detroit in 2011.

Beth was a principle vocalist on "Dancing With The Stars, Season 22 - Icons Night," and has also provided her voice to the television shows: "Ash vs. Evil Dead" on the Starz Network, "Glee Project" on the OWN Network and "American Bible Challenge" on the Game Show Network (GSN).

Beth Griffith is the daughter of Johnny Griffith, the legendary and Multi-Grammy® Award-winning pianist/keyboardist. He was an original member of the Funk Brothers, Motown's in-house studio band that created the famous 'Motown Sound.'

Beth's father was one of only a few classically-trained musicians who worked at Motown. The late Johnny Griffith played on hundreds of Motown songs, including top hits such as, "Stop, In The Name Of Love," "Ain't No Mountain High Enough," "I Heard It Through The Grapevine," "What's Going On," "Dancin' In The Streets," "I Can't Help Myself (Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch)," "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" and "Shotgun." He also played keys on several non-Motown records, including: "Lonely Teardrops," "(Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher," "Have You Seen Her?" and "Cool Jerk." At age 16, he played with blues superstar John Lee Hooker, and as a young man in the 1960s, he toured with Dinah Washington, Aretha Franklin and Sarah Vaughan.

Being a young girl in a house filled with such musical brilliance day in and day out, it's no wonder that Beth's own musical interests peaked early. At age 5, she began learning how to play the piano alongside her father, and it was evident then, that music was in her DNA.
