skribe / Bio

In 2009, Skribe broke into the Maryland folk scene with a rusty crowbar & released a soundtrack of 14 growly mantras – Doin’ The Dirt. A raw do-it-yourself guide to garage folk.Skribe’s non-stop live presence has ignited musical collaborations with the areas most skilled musicians & generated a cultured following. This amazing scene helped crowdfund & launch skribe’s recent 12″ LP. The fine tuned production of ‘Less Is More’ showcases the artists’ growth & raw soulful dynamic. Whatever the fidelity, skribe’s blooming creative career should not be considered a rolling stone…it’s a boulder. ~Brite Winter 2014
skribe is a down to earth, no frills garage folk outfit out of maryland making solid good time tunes, for whatever good times means to you....a somewhat lofi approach with catchy melodies and what i imagine to be a rowdy live show. 'less is more' is their latest album.

I just saw SKRIBE at the Five Spot in Atlanta, GA and found his music rolling around inside my head all the next day. It was that good. If I had to deskribe (heh) his unique style of urban, bluesy, stompin', punch-you-in-the-face folk sound—imagine John Prine in a can of spray paint, then splayed in big bold crooked characters across the side of a moving freight train. His music roars with his own kind of explosive energy. For me—Tom Waits came to mind. But forget Waits or Prine. Aaron Yealdhall—the man behind Skribe—sounds like Aaron Yealdhall. I really hate to compare him to anyone else. The only way to catch the spirit is to go hear him yourself. If you get the chance, take it.

You can hear more soul in one line from Skribe than many mainstream artists can muster in an entire career. More than any artist on the album, Skribe knows exactly how his voice and guitar are meant to fit together.

"an eclectic, ultra smooth blend of earthy, gritty, modern folk music for the soul from the soul. A band that I can work and drink to all day." - Katch 1 Natural Koncept
