Skribe LIVE Downtown
July 22, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Skribe plays an oil can called a canjo-zookie. It’s an eight-string guitar with a biting, bluesy rasp. Skribe’s got the voice (and the old-school Cadillac) to match. Accompanying himself on the suitcase-kick and hi-hat, Skribe’s “M.I.Y.” is a barn-burning roots number.

If Chris Stapleton can find a way to win four CMA Awards in 2015, then maybe there’s hope that the country community will be smart and adopt SKRIBE and his oil-can “canjo-zookie” too. With gauged ears and a suitcase for a kick-drum, he’s exactly the kind of phoenix a burning-alive country industry needs right now.

They call it “garage-folk,” perhaps because the music is crafted without any more polish than it needs to showcase the allure of its soulfully delivered down-to-earth lyrics. The focus of Skribe’s sound is rhythmic acoustic strumming and plucking with emphatic vocals that epitomize the musical landscape of the area’s small-town city feel. Oh yeah, and the kazoo. Who knew you could elevate a quasi-irritating kid’s birthday party favor to a desirable-sounding musical instrument?!
