Having caught Esuna for my first Oxjam podcast a couple of weeks ago, I was expecting a similar pub based catch up with Joshua Price a.k.a. Scriber. Except that he’s now based in Manchester, so a quick meet up turned into a phone call. It was great to have a good long chat about his music, which if you haven’t heard before is incredibly tender, yet anything but serene (think vulnerable lyrics clashing with gentle melodies).
In this podcast we had a chat about the Manchester music scene and the city’s culture; Carefully Planned Festival; playing a capella and nerves; solo shows and band gigs; and his upcoming gig at Oxjam.
If you somehow miraculously still have doubts about checking him out, here’s a taster of his track Holland House which is a hell of a good showcase of what he’s about. I’m amped for his LP when that sees the light of day, and I hope you are too. In the meantime, see you for his set on Sunday.
