Scott H. Biram - The One And Only Scott H. Biram

Texas blues great Scott H. Biram returns with The One & Only Scott H. Biram, his long-awaited first new album in four years.

Scott H. Biram, a seasoned Texan troubadour with a career spanning nearly three decades, has weathered the storms of life with the resilience of a true maverick. Much like musical trailblazers Doug Sahm, Roky Erickson, and Gibby Haynes, Biram's journey took a dramatic turn following a near-fatal collision with a semi in 2003. Undeterred, he forged ahead, creating raw, unfiltered music that became his hallmark.

Fast forward to his pandemic-induced hiatus in 2020, Biram found solace and inspiration, crafting nine original tracks and two traditional covers for the new album. Reflecting on the sonic direction of the project, Biram shared, "I’m constantly trying to go back to the junky, lo-fi sounds of my early records... a mix of blues, country, folk, and influences from heavier genres like metal and hard rock."

The One & Only Scott H. Biram is a testament to the artist's unapologetic style, as evident in tracks like "No Man’s Land," a gritty tale of growing up in a small Texas town surrounded by the harsh realities of oil wells and brush fires. Meanwhile, Biram captures the essence of an empty saloon in "Inside a Bar," a straightforward country blues number with an understated vocal and an impressive solo that echoes the loneliness of a slow Monday night.

From the riot-inspired "Sinner’s Dinner" to a unique take on Leadbelly’s "Easy Rider," The One & Only Scott H. Biram weaves a tapestry of emotions, exploring themes of mortality, romance, and nostalgia without adhering to a singular narrative. "I view my albums as collages," explained Biram. "Combining elements from punk, metal, blues, country, and bluegrass. They reflect the diverse aspects of life – it’s not a concept but an expression."
