The Scribes at Love Summer Festival 2022 Flyer

One of the best live hip-hop bands on the UK circuit, The Scribes have been tearing up stages for more than a decade. “We started making music towards the end of secondary school,” says Jonny Steele, who has known fellow MC Shaun ‘Ill Literate’ Amos since they were kids growing up in Bristol. “Shaun moved down to Plymouth for uni and we started hitting up some open-mic cyphers.” Somehow, they’ve kept this long distance relationship going ever since.

“I don’t think we’ve had a band practice in about six years,” says Shaun. “Luckily we’re able to gig so often that we just keep ticking over…”

While Jonny and Shaun do most of the rapping, they wouldn’t be The Scribes without “beatboxer and mascot” Paul Lacey. “Each of us brings something to the table,” says Shaun. “Lacey mostly brings complaints about drinks riders, but he does also pull out the odd vocal scratch.”
