Stunning violin floats above equally gorgeous piano and guitar riffs with strangely synthetic percussion filling in the rest in a combination that is as bewildering as it is engaging. - Chewing Gum For The Ears

Little Tybee was formed in the winter of 2009 by Brock Scott, Josh Martin and Ryan Gregory as a rebound from the breakup of other groups. Since its conception, Little Tybee has gone from a trio to a five piece with the addition of Ryan Donald on bass and Pat Brooks on percussion.

The roots of Little Tybee stemmed when Brock Scott and Josh Martin met while in college and began writing instrumental music together. Brock met Ryan Gregory in 2008 while collaborating with New York-based artist Nic Rad to create a visual/musical experience called Dreamer Boy Dan. Combining the music and publishing worlds, DBD invented a unique method of character creation and storytelling. Working fluidly between illustration, music, and poetry, DBD aimed to return printed content to the music consumer. The project was greatly inspired by the format of children’s storybook vinyl used by Disney and other publishers in the 1950s and 1960s. Over fifteen musicians collaborated with Brock and Nic on this project, including Josh and Ryan, and after four months of recording, a 10-song/10-poem/10-illustration product emerged. The album was recorded by Pat Brooks in Atlanta, GA and mastered by Grammy winning producer Don McCollister (Sister Hazel, Indigo Girls, Shawn Mullins). The project was pitched to multiple publication firms and record labels, but an unsure marketing strategy stalled the project from further production.

After collaborating with Pat Brooks on recording Dreamer Boy Dan, a great creative chemistry was formed. This same chemistry was realized with the creation of Little Tybee始s first EP, I Wonder Which House The Fish Will Live In. The EP was recorded over the course of 4 days in Brock始s apartment in downtown Atlanta. Keeping collaboration an integral part of Little Tybee始s mission, the band worked with printmaker Jason Kofke to develop original album art.

Little Tybee has just finished recording their first full length LP, Building A Bomb, due out in mid November. LT worked with Jason Kofke once again to design a truly unique interactive CD case. In August 2009, all of the CD covers were hand printed, carefully cut out, and glued together, making each CD a one of a kind work of art.

Little Tybee has been busy collaborating with a few different directors on finalizing two music videos and is currently planning a three week East Coast tour due to start October 2, 2009.
