"Hard Hitting Rock"


Hard hitting rock foursome Scour have an attack that works well on all fronts. "Bright Idea" shows that singer Chris Jones has the right tone and instincts for the music. Alternately savage and sensitive, he bites into the lyrics when necessary, but can also ease up at the right moment. "Hideaway" has a graceful guitar solo. Not to be overlooked is the drumming, which is tight and spot-on at all times, so important to a band like this. pg. 50 May 2009 - Music Connection Magazine

Bio

Armed with a cooler of lunch meat and a backpack of clothes, 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.
