Little Tybee is an experimental, progresive folk-rock band based out of Atlanta, GA. Since their beginnings in 2008, the band has released 3 full length albums and conducted several tours. Stylistically, the band fuses together elements from folk, psychedelic rock, indie music, jazz, and other diverse influences.
"A band in full command now of a sound that amalgamates jazz-like virtuosity, symphonic scope, and hook-laden folk into something focussed and distinctly original. A band that, after four years together, seems to have achieved that rare level of cohesion so as to make each member seem equally imperative to, and inseparable from, the music they create. As if, in fact, they are a family, bound not by blood so much as pure devotion. See them in Atlanta, their current home, or in Savannah, their old one, or anywhere else, for they have performed all over the country. See them awash in California sunlight, or shrouded in the mist of the Seattle Mountains. Hear their sounds filling the silences of the Texas desert, or rendering the big-city cacophony into more enjoyable forms of grandeur."
Vocalist Sami Stevens is known for work across many genres. Hailing originally from the woods of East Winthrop, Maine, Sami has performed with world renowned jazz pianist Jason Moran and 6-time Grammy nominee Fred Hersch, and opened for artists as diverse as Grammy nominated folk singer Greg Brown, acclaimed Black Star rapper Talib Kweli, and Billboard top 10 hip-hop artist Kid Ink. Sami has sung all over the East coast, including NYC venues Webster Hall, Bowery Electric, and Sullivan Hall, Boston venues like Downstairs at the Middle East, the Lily Pad and Club Church, and Paris venues like Duc Des Lombards and and Caveau de la Houchette. She has also led the Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra, performed numerous times in Boston's famous Jordan Hall, and sung the national anthem in Fenway Park at age 16. Sami is also lead vocalist for the widely celebrated faux Italian 70's soundtrack band Tredici Bacci.
Sami recently released the Melting EP, a collection of music written for strings, drums and voice.
