Little Tybee is a folk-rock band based out of Atlanta, GA. After the dissolution of their previous act, The Brock Scott Quartet, the remaining members continued to make music under the name of Little Tybee, whose first album, Building A Bomb, was self-released on November 10, 2009. The band then started touring shortly thereafter, went through various lineup changes, and was picked up by Paper Garden Records who released their second album, Humorous To Bees, on April 5, 2011.
Since the release of Humorous To Bees, Little Tybee has played notable events including the Rombello festival cruise (w/ Citizen Cope, Rhett Miller, Slightly Stoopid & more) after coming in first place in a contest hosted by Paste Magazine,CMJ Music Marathon, SXSW, and Fringe Festival and has shared the stage with artists such as Kishi Bashi, Sondre Lerche, Givers, Man Man, Reptar, Nicole Atkins, The Love Language, and Dent May.
In 2011, the band created a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a music video for their song 'Boxcar Fair'. The video was an ambitious collaboration between the band and Atlanta-based puppeteer Tom Haney, consisting of a handmade 60' x 15' set and was shot in one continuous take. The campaign was successfully funded, doubling its original target of $5000.00 and reaching $11,131.00. The video was accepted into SXSW Film 2012.
The band has also seen success from a song placement in the season finale of MTV's Skins and the following media outlets: CNN,RCRD LBL, Filter Mag, NPR, BreakThruRadio, Paste Magazine, Metromix, Owl Magazine, Much Music, AOL/Spinner, Toronto Star, Creative Loafing, Napster UK, I Guess I'm Floating, and You Ain't No Picasso.
Daytrotter released a session with Little Tybee on September 11, 2012 which featured four tracks from the forthcoming album For Distant Viewing.
Their latest album, For Distant Viewing, is slated to be released on April 9, 2013. Scrapping their characteristic DIY approach to recording, the band enlisted the help of Ben Price at Studi LaRoche to handle the tracking and mixing of the album. The album was then mastered by Glenn Schick at Glenn Schick Mastering.
