With catchy melodies and screaming guitars, Scour sounds like the long awaited reconciliation of Kurt Cobain and Axl Rose mediated by Jim Morrison.
Armed with a cooler of lunch meat and a backpack full of clothing, singer Chris Jones rode his '82 Yamaha motorcycle on a 3 and a half day journey from Philadelphia to Los Angeles. Chris soon met fellow LA transplant Jason Manoff (from St. Louis) through a mutual affection for music. While Chris's style was heavily influenced by grunge, Jason's style was influenced by blues driven eighties rock. The styles seemed to clash at first glance... yet they curiously played off of each other and Scour was born. Seattle native Will Walz joined the band to bring the bass up a couple of notches. Heather Miller provides her Bostonian beat-down on the drums. Since the band's inception, the creativity has evolved to become a beautifully collaborative process.
