"I've always felt like a mama bear in our little PHX DIY Scene. My wife and I always offered up our floor to folx on tour, gave rides to kids who needed them, bailed out bands if they found themselves in some trouble & I loved hanging with little kids who found themselves in these spaces we occupied. So of course I was overjoyed when I found out that Tiny Pies (Griffin) and their friend Pat were still just kids themselves, when they tour through PHX and played at Four White Walls.
I'm not sure if I booked this show or just ended up there. But we offered up our humble (shitty) condo to Pat and Griffin after the set. I don't remember much about that night, but a couple moments stick out: Tiny Pies' cover of "Train In Vain" was incredible, they ended their set with it & I just remember being so excited to sing along with this crusty little kid to my favorite Clash song. After Griffin & Pat got back to our place Griffin asked if I could give them a haircut, it was just really adorable & I loved feeling like we were kind of mothering these two, making sure they were well rested & fed & cleaned up for their tour.
I assumed my brief interaction with Griffin would be just that, but I ended up running into them several years later when just by chance they came into this Record + Candy Store my wife and I opened (Sweets & Beats) right up the road from where Tiny Pies had played years before. Griffin was Definitely an adult now & I was pregnant with my second child while my first one ran around the shop. We recognized each other, hugged and caught up. IT was a really sweet surprise to see that Griffin was doing well. I haven't seen them since but I hope they are taking care of them self & if they ever need another haircut or hot meal, I'm on it."-Emily
**NOTE FROM HEIRLOOM RECORDS**
I was not able get in contact with Tiny Pies to get permission to release this album. I tried really hard and had multiple friends attempt to track them down as well. So... GRIFFIN IF YOU DO NOT WANT THESE RECORDINGS ONLINE ANYMORE PLEASE TELL ME. I will take them down without hesitation. I just really love this CDr I bought from you at that Four White Walls show and wanted to share it with the world.
