The bulk of the Little Tybee’s compositions begin their life as delicate creations, etched around the sinewy acoustic guitar and lilting vocals of singer songwriter and band leader Brock Scott. The songs are then fleshed out by the eight-string guitar virtuoso Josh Martin (endorsed by Ibanez & Dunlop), the classical flare of Nirvana Kelly’s violin, the deep pocket grooves of Ryan Donald’s hook-laden bass and Pat Brook’s gospel tinged beats, all rounded out by Chris Case’s driving keyboard arrangements. The result is kinetic and eclectic, an album which is both soothing and bombastic, and which rewards repeat listens. By blending elements of Folk, Psych, Jazz, and Bossa, Little Tybee have created a genre all their own, both creative and technical, with a keen ear for melody and accessibility.
It's instrumental music that takes chances, but the kind of chances that mean something, not the casual noodling jam-wall of monotony. It dances the line between the composed and the improvised, decorates devastating grooves with angular noise, immensely pleases, yet cannot be put in any familiar box.
For over a decade, Kenosha Kid has expertly serves jazz purists,
indie-rock hipsters, and funk-loving jam fans alike, delivering music somewhere between the wild explorations of Sonny Sharrock, the whip tight grooves of Booker-T, and the composed depth of Wayne Shorter, all the while borrowing freely from the gutters and ditches of many other great musical traditions
"Muted electronic textures, hard bop grooves, and psych-rock
flourishes all come out to play in Kenosha Kid's sound" -Creative
