Scary Little Friends is the Folk-Rock brainchild of Chris Jones with Charlie Knote on drums, and Jon Payne on bass. Chris built his own studio in the Mission district to record their debut album, “From the Beginning”, which features lilting vocals (a la Jeff Buckley) and surfs-up psychedelic guitar; a trademark of the “San Francisco Sound”. Based in both Santa Cruz and San Francisco with underlying southern soul roots, strong songwriting is really the bread and butter of this band. Scary Little Friend’s live shows combine an understated professionalism with raw talent. They connect with their audience the old-fashioned way by offering authentic heartfelt performances that fulfill our desire to connect. No gimmicks, no tricks. Just great songs about what you were thinking but couldn’t say.
