The Scribblers began when Justin Turner—originally a singer/songwriter from Hot Springs, Arkansas—moved to Chicago, Illinois while searching for a more satisfying musical environment. What he found were four other equally talented singer/songwriters with very similar perspectives on music.

Dusty Monk, singer/songwriter for Chicago band "Root Shoot Leaf," signed on to play bass. Jesse H., formerly the singer/songwriter of Chicago band "The Pedals" (currently playing solo), became the second guitarist and group multi-instrumentalist. Arlin Peebles, singer/songwriter for Chicago bands "Makeway Motorcade" and "Cleanray," joined to play drums.

Their music has pop sensibility, classic country overtones, and the occasional psychedelic explosion. Influences range far and wide—from the playful experimentation of Captain Beefheart, the melodic mindset of The Beatles, and the recent rise of modern indie rock to the cool lazy aura of Randy Newman.

The Scribblers are currently self-producing their first album which is projected to release in December of 2007. However, with the help of their outstanding live show and the "Dirty Word Play Demo" recorded by Justin with limited resources in his bedroom, they have already begun to develop an established fan base in the Chicago area.
