“Love the bass/vocal combo. What else do you need?” – No Treble Magazine, on Scott Varney’s playing.
“Mature and polished…at times poignant, at times almost irreverently humorous, but always with an edge.” – Allen Foster, editor of Songwriter’s Monthly on Brittany Frompovich’s playing
Aaron Gibson presents an interesting blend of singer/songwriter and solo bassist. Once described as “Jack Johnson playing with the Red Hot Chili Peppers,” the Oregon-based low-ender comps for himself while playing impressive original tunes as well as covers. Aaron scores solo gigs by covering the bass line, harmony, melody, and vocals all on his own. For more information, go to http://www.aarongibson.me/
The best way to describe Scott Varney is as a modern day one- man band with the stylings of Victor Wooten, Ani Difranco and Bobby Mcferrin wrapped up into one. Scott brings this sound together with his voice, his six string bass guitar, drums, and various percussion instruments. even from time to time One characteristic element of his performance is “Looping” his vocals and instruments to create the sound of a full band with the occasional Beat Box to supplement the beat.
