Just the fact alone that Scott H. Biram
was sitting in our studio recording a Discover session, is amazing in itself. Back on March 25, 2003, Scott was hit head on by an 18-wheeler truck and driven right over. He suffered a broken femur, knee, arm and several internal injuries. Metal pins & rods were put in all of the broken bones, and on top of that, a foot and a half of his intestines were removed. Even more amazing is that only a handful of weeks after this life-threatening wreck, he was back on the stage performing in a wheelchair with an IV attached to his arm. He spent the next seven months in and out of the hospital. (Strangely enough, two original songs that he released on the record LO:FI Mojo, were called “Truckdriver” and “Wreck My Car”).
Nicknamed “The Dirty Old One Man Band,” he told us that after the accident he became more driven, and by being spared a little, he faced the fact that by still being alive, he had “something left to do in this world.” On October 11th, Biram released his fourth album on Bloodshot Records
and ninth overall. His love of country
music all blend together on Bad Ingredients
. To my ears,, with this album, he has come into his own. Check out the first of four performances as Biram strums and sings. His stuff will get you stomping and moving for sure!Scott H. Biram Live At Last.fm Discover
