Jimbo Scott was raised in the Bay Area in the artistic hotbed that is Oakland. At 13, he taught himself guitar to have a vehicle for songwriting. He has crafted a unique brand of soulful folk music that draws on jazz, funk and rock to build a powerful yet intimate style. Jimbo has an emotive lyrical style that draws on surreal imagery and passionate character profiles. In 2013, he released a full length album "Weekends At the Madhouse".
Grover Anderson was raised in the gold rush town of Murphys, CA. The rich regional culture, along with lifelong exposure to fiction, theater, and music, instilled a storytelling style that is evident in Grover’s writing. Grover assembled a bar band while attending UCSB, and has recorded 3 albums, Innocent Insinuations, Touniquet and his 2014 release, The Optimist. His writing delicately treads the border between folk storytelling tradition and pop/rock.
Jimbo and Grover met in 2012 at the Freight and Salvage open mic in Berkeley. Both resonated with the others' sound and lyrical craft and immediately began to collaborate. Having written a hook and chorus to a country tune, Jimbo asked Grover to help complete the song. The finished product became the track "Pick Up Your Horn" featured on Grover's album "the Optimist". Though each is an independent songwriter in his own right, the two have been performing together, playing each others' songs, and working on further collaborations. This genre hopping duo can be found in the bars of The San Francisco Bay Area and touring the Western United States together.
