Blending old-school jazz and country styles with an "alt-rock" flair, The Tremors have found a unique niche with audiences in Los Angeles and surrounding areas. Members Parker (country boy) and Scott (jazz cat) first began playing together in early 2002 and were later joined by Matt on drums/percussion and Tom on Bass Guitar.

Originally from Chicago Illinois, Scott came to Los Angeles at the age of 18 to explore it's musical possibilities. He has since earned a BA in Jazz Guitar Performance & Ethnomusicolgy from the University of California, Los Angeles and has been a sought after session guitarist, producer, and composer, working with many top artists. Coming full circle, Scott is enjoying a return to his roots with The Tremors, where his playing ranges from greasy down home blues, to psychedelic redneck jazz.
Born and raised in Texas, Matt has been playing drums since the age of 11. He went to college to study music, but still doesn't like Gregorian Chant much. He cites Jeff Buckley, Buddy Rich, Dave Weckl, Michael Hedges, The Smiths & Wilco as musical influences. He loves pie, his mother & Shiner Bock beer.
Growing up in San Diego California and venturing out on his own at an early age, Tom draws from life experiences more than hours plugged in. His influences include the Sex Pistols to Johnny Cash and everything in between. Having played in bands around California, the one thing that has been a common thread is the honesty of the music and the places it can take you.
