Scooter Brown Band
After 4 years and 3 months, 2 tours overseas with 1 tour of combat in Iraq as a United States Marine, Scott Brown traded his guns in for guitars and hit the road. The Scooter Brown Band was formed in 2005 and played mainly in and around Houston, Texas. It wasn't until 2009 with the release of their first studio album, "Between Hell & Texas," that they gained a notable presence in the music scene. Along with their growing notoriety came their first radio single "Apology." Other radio releases were soon to follow and include "Whiskey Talkin", "Soldiers Christmas Eve", "Feels Like Home,", "Summer Song". In 2010, Scooter Brown Band put out the album "LIVE at BIG TEXAS". In 2013, they followed up with their next studio album, "VALOR." The title track was co-written by Navy Seal & American Sniper, Chris Kyle.
The newest self-titled album "Scooter Brown Band" was released in September 2015. This album is a move in a different direction for the band with a lot more "Southern Rock" influence. Radio singles, "Hard Times" & "Olivia" have already come off this record with great response.
SBB has put out four records but their live show is where people truly become fans. SBB has toured Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Alabama, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, Montana, Wisconsin, New York, Washington D.C., and Tennessee, headlining shows and opening for some of the biggest names in the business. In 2016, Scooter Brown Band was fortunate enough to join forces with well established Nashville booking agents at APA & manged by David Corlew of the Charlie Daniels Band.
With 2 of the 4 members being prior military, the band spends a lot of time doing work for Veteran Support Organizations like Base Camp 40 - Warriors in the Wild, Lone Survivor Foundation, and the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation.
2011 "Texas Kind of Way" Penned by Scott Brown and Cody Johnson was nominated for song of the year.
2012 Scooter Brown Band was nominated for New Band of the Year by the Texas Regional Radio Music Awards.
2013 "Sent Me You" Penned by Scott Brown #1 by Josh Ward, nominated for Song of the Year.
The percentage of aspiring musicians from suburban cover bands who never step out of the shadows of the local bar’s live music scene is unsurprisingly large. To lift the impossible weight of anonymity nowadays takes more than just big dreams. It takes big talent.
Jesse Joice first picked up a guitar when he was nine years old. After a slew of lessons from family members, local instructors, and the years-long process of honing his crafts—vocals and songwriting, in addition to guitar—he was just fifteen when he first felt the heat of stage lights. After spending five years fronting local cover band Another Alibi, the Tulsa native had his first brush with fame when he appeared on season twelve of American Idol in 2013, making it to the top fifty guys before heading back to Oklahoma to focus on a more self-propelled shot at success.
A year and a half and one trip to Tennessee later, Joice found himself in Nashville under the wing of Jamie Tate, a Grammy and Emmy award-winning recording engineer and producer. Though the country crooner had more taste for blues/rock as a kid, he began writing seriously in 2009 and realized he felt most at home under the influences of Nashville-style songwriters. Now with one boot planted firmly on each side of the fence between rock and country, he credits Gary Morgan, Will Hoge, and Brett James for inspiring him in his first major musical endeavor.
With all the downhome grit expected from a modern country artist, Joice’s smooth gravel voice slides over each chorus just as easily as his guitar solos (worthy of major air-guitar shredding) will impress hardcore rock/country acolytes. The grinding guitars and hip-swaying chorus of his new single “Oklahoma Weather” won’t disappoint fans of Jason Aldean and presents the catch-me-if-you-can type of girl Taylor Swift wishes she could be. “Like I Ain’t From Around Here” reflects his roots—“We could roll down south to Snake Creek/Sit and talk on Cry Baby Bridge”—and is just the tune for small-town kids to blast from the speakers of their jacked-up pickups as they welcome the weekend. Also including anthem-like two-steppers and slowed down odes to his Midwestern roots, his five song EP will be released in 2015 with the hopes of a forthcoming album sometime after. His single “Oklahoma Weather” is available for purchase now on iTunes.
