BIO:

D. Scott Riggs is a Gulf Coast based songwriter/musician that plays Panhandle Blues, a rich gumbo of Pre-War Delta, Piedmont, and Country Blues, with doses of Jazz, Gospel, Hokum, Cajun, and Jug music thrown in for flavor.

As frontman/songwriter for the road-tested

band Spearman Brewers and as a solo troubadour, Riggs has toured the Great South for mutliple years, bringing his original Panhandle music to the meek and thirsty.

REVIEWS:

If these guys were anymore "rootsy" you could cultivate them! Nothing but acoustic instruments here with a clean, crisp sound that is taken from those old 78's (without the scratches) and transports you to that front porch swing on a lazy afternoon. This 6-track EP is a treat for the senses and is guaranteed repeat listens.

- Marty, The Blues and Roots Music Blog

 

Piedmont-style blues with a distinctive gravel-infused voice, this Pensacola talent will have you asking for a second round. Six songs about drinking, women, and occasionally drinking with women that will hit the spot for fans of traditional roots music.

Nikki Hedrick, The Beachcomber

 

 

 

The roots band combines blues, Americana, jazz and country influences into a rich musical gumbo.

(And you’ve got to love Scott Riggs vocals, which channel Dr. John, Leon Redbone, Tom Waits and a little bit of old Root Boy Slim.) The album gets off

to a smokin’ start with the observant “The Street Where You Got Your Feet,’’ referencing a beloved New Orleans’ street scam, and the heat never lets

up. Really, good stuff.
