Erik "Blu2th" Griggs, born in Ohio, raised in St. Louis MO, has been a musician as long as he can remember. He started playing the Piano as a toddler and never stopped. During college, he took up the Guitar and Bass. You've heard him play all three instruments on records from the Dreamgirls soundtrack to Omarion, Tyrese to K-Ci, Charlie Wilson to Jordin Sparks. He is co-producer/writer of the Boyz II Men single, "One Up for Love". On that song, he's playing almost all instruments, including Drums, which he picked up in 2009. 

 

     He is best known for his involvement in the song "No Air", with Jordin Sparks and Chris Brown. On No Air, he's the principle writer and co-producer with The Underdogs. He has written with the likes of The Underdogs, Tim & Bob, and Babyface to name a few. In his first three years in the industry, his work earned him a People’s Choice award, a BMI Song of the Year award, and a Grammy nomination. 

 

     Considering the fact that he moved to Los Angeles in 2005 with only a guitar and a suitcase, he is clearly one of the most upwardly mobile producer/writers in the game.
