My output of original music is on Soundcloud.
To avoid any confusion with any other Jonny Griffiths (and there are at least nine on the site at the last count),
my music appears under the name of Max Hikorski, my alter ego (searching for 'max hikorski' gets you there).
To explain, in 2002 I took part in a production of They Shoot Horses, Don't They?;
I was the piano-playing bandleader, who was named in the script as Max Hikorski.

Once upon a time I earned my living full-time from music, from 1983 to 1987.
We were called Harvey and the Wallbangers, and our Wikipedia entry is here.
I wrote six songs for us that can be heard here.
For the most part, I play instruments that are stringed.
The Reason's You is a collection of my songs for voice and strings.
This group can be heard here.
In 1991, my propensity for playing stringed instruments led to an invitation
to play a character called Stringfellow on Playdays,
a popular children's programme at the time. My songs for him appear here.
In 1993, I visited the island of Iona for a week of music run by the band Lies Damn Lies.
I was inspired as a result to write thirteen songs, each based on a psalm, and scored for gospel quartet.
These psalms can be heard here.
In 2001, I took part in a production of The Caucasian Chalk Circle.
I was asked to write the score, and this became the eleven songs that can be heard here.
In 1993, I wrote a jazz score for a production of A Comedy of Errors.
This came to six songs, that can be heard here.

contributing vocals, fiddle, rhythm guitar, piano, or string/electric bass.
Below are a couple of songs featuring me on vocals and piano.
Just one of those things (Porter)

Below are a couple of songs featuring me on violin and piano.
