The Scienters are an alternative folk/rock band from Lichfield, Staffordshire.
They have an instantly recognisable, distinct tone and have been likened in their sound, style and approach to bands such as Mumford and Sons and The Lumineers.
The band formed and started composing in the early part of 2013 and consists of Steve Griffin (Vocals/Guitar), Chris Mapp (Bass/Vocals) and Ian Cowley (Guitar/Mandolin/Vocals).
The music created is drawn from collective, personal, life experiences. This has produced a contrast in material that ranges from heartfelt, emotive melodies to up-tempo, care free, foot-stompers.
