About Scott Pemberton
Infectious and inventive dance music. Funky, surfy, rock propelled by Scott’s virtuosic guitar playing. If James Brown, Dick Dale and Jimi Hendrix planted a fruit tree in portland, this sound might have fallen off.
Scott Pemberton’s sound is much like the vibe of his native Portland: freaky, fun and just the right amount of weird. The best way to categorize his music is with the moniker “Timber Rock”. Scott naturally applies his own lens/stamp to the sounds of the Pacific North West, the region he has always called home. The deep jazz, NW rock/grunge, blues roots and the west coast funk. It’s all there, and often all in the same song.
Listeners are finding this honest, original and to-the-point music refreshing and fun.
The response to Scotts music has made him an emerging force on the festival circuit, placed him at #1 in Portland’s pop charts, #4 on Bilboards “Tastmakers” chart and has generated notice from the press:
“The Bruce Lee of Rock and Roll” –Tahoe on Stage
“A modern day Jimi Hendrix” –Chico Enterprise
“It’s not every day we get to see a real, live guitar god in action.” -Fly Magazine (Pennsylvania)
