The "Dirty Old One Man Band" himself is heading back to The Jinx to deliver his signature blend of old country, metal, and punk.
With a classic outlaw croon, roughed up on the surface and curling with Southern twang, the Lockhart, Texas native grew up in the punk scene, gaining a taste for old-time roots music during college. While in school, Biram delved into bluegrass and started two groups, Scott Biram & the Salt Peter Boys and Bluegrass Drive-By.
His current one-man band setup—chain-gang style riffs and soulful open strumming on a 1959 Gibson hollow body nurtured by an amplified stomp board—has been his mainstay since the late ‘90s.
Biram’s rabid dedication to his craft was never more evident than what transpired after the songwriter was hit head-on by a semi in 2003. While confined to his bed, Biram spit out an EP, Rehabilitation Blues, and even performed onstage in a wheelchair, draped in IVs, at Austin’s Continental Club, just two months after the wreck.
2014’s Nothin’ But Blood continues the Biram tradition of hard-edged, raw roots licks and a passionate, road-warrior spirit.
Bluesy Americana band Doug Strahan & The Good Neighbors join Biram for fifteen dates on his Southeast tour. Savannah’s A.M. Rodriguez, whose vintage country sound and Texas drawl perfectly complements Biram’s, opens the night.
