The sound of grit is hard to describe. It means different things to different people. In rock ‘n roll it could mean a strong guitar lick. At the gym it often means groans and banging barbells. In counrty, it means Scott H. Biram.

 

 With the changing tides of country music to a more pop-centric scene, it’s increasingly rare to find an artist who brings the music back to its roots. Yes, he relies on the 9-5 life of America to garner feelings of desperately seeking whiskey but there are no cute cowboys or sequins in any of his tales. He’s talking to you middle-aged, middle America. He feels that way too.

 

And if you happen to be a trucker, he’s got you covered with songs ranging from “Open Road” to “Truck Driver”. There’s no bullshit in his lyrics and if you like to crack a beer open at the end of the night, well he’s got some tunes you can relate to.

 

Mostly, if you think raw guitar and a scratchy old voice is what gets you going, Scott is your man. He’s authentic, has a bit of a bad mouth, and can play the hell out of a harmonica. He’s raunchy and funny. He’s a one man show worth seeing every time he rolls into town.
