Griffith was born in Lubbock, Texas, and raised in Houston, but it was in Louisiana, while attending LSU in Baton Rouge, that he began his professional musical career. Finding a base in New Orleans, Griffith and friends started the early punk rock band Red Rockers. After a short but successful career highlighted by the "China" single and its album Good As Gold (1983), Red Rockers disbanded in early 1985.

Griffith formed Cowboy Mouth in 1990, and the band continues to tour with over a dozen full-length albums in its repertoire. Griffith released his first solo CD, Son of an Engineer, in 2000 on Laughing Gravy Music.

Known by most music fans as "JTG" or "Griff", John Thomas Griffith was inducted into Buddy magazine's Texas Guitar Hall of Fame in 1999, joining Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Eric Johnson, and others.

When not touring, he resides in Los Angeles, California, and scores motion picture soundtracks.
