Ryan (Scarbs) Scarbrough is no stranger to the music business. Scarbs’
drumming career began to take off post college after meeting Matchbox 20
guitarist Kyle Cook at a music festival in Florida. Cook was producing
bands and was in need of a drummer for studio sessions and after a few
years of recording and touring, Nashville Tennessee started to look like the
next move and within 3 months, Scarbs with the help of Cook landed a gig
for then pop/rock trio Miggs touring nonstop as well as making his debut on
the national stage performing on Good Morning America. 

As one gig led to
another Scarbs found himself drumming for country duo Thompson Square
playing theaters across the country as well as the then late night with
Conan O’Brien show. A few short years later local Nashville band A
Thousand Horses needed a drummer and with Scarbs being the perfect fit
he would soon find himself playing Fox and Friends, Jimmy Kimmel, as well
as opening for nationally touring acts such as Brothers Osborn, Blackberry
Smoke, Darius Rucker and David Nail to name a few. 

Chances are if
you’ve spent any amount of time in downtown Nashville on Broadway
you’ve seen Scarbs playing at many of the clubs and bars where you’ve felt
compelled to stay and watch as his ability to engage a room full of people
from the kit is undeniably great.
