“Atlanta, Georgia, band Little Tybee, an impressive orchestra of sorts, led by vocalist Brock Scott is most interested in those infrequent pieces of treasure we tuck into our hearts, not our pockets. They’re most interested in how those things make us feel – especially how they make us feel that we can overcome what’s binding or dampening us.” – Sean Moeller (Daytrotter)
