Scott Pemberton Biography

Scott Pemberton Band is an emerging force on the national festival and club circuit, with his wild approach to the guitar and nimble funky band he is immediately recognizable and undeniably original. He doesn’t use a strap, often plays the guitar like someone would play piano and performs with the uninhibited joy and intensity of someone who recognizes that every time we make music is an honor and a gift.

Scott Pemberton’s sound is much like the vibe of his native Portland:  freaky, fun and just the right amount of weird. The best way to categorize his music is with the moniker “Timber Rock”. Scott naturally applies his own lens/stamp to the sounds of the Pacific North West, the region he has always called home. The deep jazz, NW rock/grunge, blues roots and the west coast funk. It’s all there, and often all in the same song. Listeners are finding this honest, original and to-the-point music refreshing and fun.

Relix Magazine
“Stand out artist at this year’s High Sierra Music Festival.”


Live For Live Music:

“Pemberton has a unique way of playing his guitar and displayed it on stage by laying it flat on a barstool and ripping into a guitar solo that made everyone look to their neighbors in amazement. Ending his set with a hard hitting cover of “Dear Prudence” by the The Beatles, by the crowds response it was clear that Denver will be looking forward to his return.”
