Scott H. Biram 

Feb. 11, Neurolux

Scott H. Biram is and isn't what he seems. The Texan's tattoos, handlebar mustache, trucker's cap and casual style of dress don't reveal the artist he is. Biram takes traditional instruments and not-so-common implements (electric guitars, distortion pedals, a megaphone); and using his entire body—hands, head, feet—he produces powerful and, at times, profound music that sounds like 19th century blues and gospel spiked with more modern country, metal, punk and roots rock.

Biram, aka "The Dirty Old One Man Band," won the 2012 Independent Music Award for Best Blues Record, followed by a performance at Lincoln Center. This is the same musician the Los Angeles Times described as "The one-man band is a tour-de-force of gutbucket guitar squabble, vocals so feral they'll make you lock your doors at night, and a live set that goes down like a cocktail of whiskey, amphetamines and black-humored despair." Things aren't always what they seem.
