Scary Little Friends / Bio

Scary Little Friends is the Folk-Rock brainchild of Chris Jones with Charlie Knote on drums and Jon Payne on bass. Chris built his own studio in the Mission district to record their debut album, “From the Beginning”, which features lilting vocals (ala Jeff Buckley) and surfs-up psychedelic guitar; a trademark of the “San Francisco Sound”. Based in both Santa Cruz and SF with underlying southern soul roots, strong songwriting is really the bread and butter of this band. Scary Little Friend’s live shows combine an understated professionalism with raw talent. They connect with their audience the old-fashioned way by offering authentic heartfelt performances that fulfill our desire to connect. No gimmicks, no tricks. Just great songs about what you were thinking but couldn’t say.

Since forming in early 2013, the band has quickly risen in the ranks of the Bay Area music scene and were nominated “Band of the Month” by Deli Magazine in August 2014. In September of that same year their music video for “Devil’s Heart” debuted on CMT’s ‘The Edge’. They have been featured in the San Francisco Chronicle and Relix Magazine. In the past two years the band has performed major shows at renowned California venues such as the Rio Theatre, Bottom of the Hill, Moe’s Alley, Don Quixote’s, Brick & Mortar Music Hall, and Grateful Dead hubs Terrapin Crossroads and Sweetwater Music Hall. They have shared the stage with national touring acts Norah Jones, Boy & Bear, Chuck Prophet, Jimbo Mathus, Streets of Laredo, Soft White Sixties, Achilles Wheel, Caravan Palace, Stone Foxes, Baptist Generals, Debauche, Wildlife (Canada), Jail Weddings, Coffis Brothers and Terrapin Crossroads staples Midnight North and Go By Ocean.
