    What’s a ‘Scribble Victory’?

    Scribble Victory are a dynamic acoustic-pop duo from Derby, U.K. Formed in November 2013, they were featured in the top 120 ‘long-list’ for Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent competition 2015 and were listed as one of the top 50 acts to look out for in 2015 by Louder Than War magazine. The duo consists of Jamie Thompson (acoustic guitar and vocals) and Tomas Ward (drums and vocals). 

  • History

    Initially, this started out as a University project for Jamie, in which he was tasked with writing and recording a solo album. With the encouragement of his friends, he decided to rally up a group of people to play the songs live. Eventually, in October of 2013 (after a break to focus on other musical endeavours), Jamie came back to Scribble Victory and asked Tom to work on a stripped-back acoustic set consisting of new songs and a new attitude to the music they wrote.

  • Reviews

    “Incredible duo, tight harmonies and impressive musicianship. You’d almost think you were listening to a four piece band but then you open your eyes and realise that it’s two incredibly talented men creating that beautiful music.” - Emperor Penguin Productions 

    “When you first see that they only have a small setup of instruments, you don’t really expect too much, but the sound they produce is amazing.” -

    “They take folk music to places it’s never been before by introducing elements more familiar to lovers of American emo into an acoustic setting and it works magnificently.” - The Devil Has The Best Tuna

    “Stripped back acoustic duo with some really beautiful harmonies happening across their tracks.” - Louder Than War

  • Live

    The duo are best known for their live performances, particularly at festivals where they break down the 4th wall between themselves, as performers, and the audience. Regularly appearing at Y Not festival they have gained great reviews from both Buttonpusher and Louder Than War. They have also supported the likes of: Brian Nash (Frankie Goes To Hollywood), Jonah Matranga (Far), Johnny Foreigner, Laura Stevenson and Dave McPherson (InMe). 

    They played over 100 times in 2015 winning over audiences across England and Wales with their harmonies, their unique, minimal set up and yet surprisingly full and dynamic sound.
