Tramps & Thieves have been called: “A Country Folk Rock band with an Outlaw Hippie Attitude.” The band is comprised of dual lead singer-guitarists J. Scott Howard and Emmett DeGuvera, bassist Andy Jensen, and drummer Scott Seymann.
With their unique southwestern sound, Tramps & Thieves have been a cherished staple in the Arizona music scene since 2001. The band has just independently released their fourth CD called Galloping Hearts. It is the follow up to their previous three: Mill Ave Cowboys, Spittin’ Into the Wind, and Perennials.
Tramps & Thieves continue to play to packed audiences around the Valley and state-wide, including shows with Jason Isbell, The Gin Blossoms, Dead Hot Workshop, Shurman, The Pistoleros, and Arizona’s other treasured rock band, Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers. They occasionally make their way back toward the midwestern USA playing shows along the way.
Tramps & Thieves remain one of the few Arizona bands that release authentic, independent music. Listing influences of Tom Petty, The Black Crowes, The Jayhawks, The Band, Wilco, Ryan Adams and The Rolling Stones it would be difficult to go too wrong; however, do not expect these guys to sound like a carbon copy of anything you’ve ever heard. They have a sound all their own and if that sound is somehow familiar, you might have heard their hit, “Porcupine Jacket,” in the 2008 teen comedy major motion picture release, Sex Drive.
