Neil Cribbs
Neil Cribbs Neil Cribbs is a blues and soul-soaked Americana musician based out of Atlanta, GA. Drawing influences from Cat Stevens, the Beatles, Uncle Tupelo, Taj Mahal, Joni Mitchell, Richard Buckner, and many other artists Neil's road is paved with anything that grooves. With over 130 solo shows under his belt in 2011, he has continued to tour around the United States, collecting tales, music, and fans along the way. His first studio album "Marionette" gained fans of pure, raw Americana while his sophomore release "Windshield" provides listeners with a high-energy mash up of his genre-less writing style. In late 2011 Neil formed Neil Cribbs and the Rough Gentlemen and began pushing his sound. In 2012 Neil finished his third album "To the Left" with Producer Simon Illa and Engineer Sam Thomas further pushing the limits of his style. Neil continues to keep driving with the uplifted fanbase of self-proclaimed Cribblets.
