Charleston native Derek Cribb has earned a reputation in town as an acoustic rock musician, but over the last few years, the multi-talented songwriter has incorporated a pile of reggae and ska tunes into his repertoire. Much of that credit goes to his longtime pal and bandmate John Picard.

“I loved all the Bob Marley stuff when I was younger, but I got more into the deep stuff from the ’70s,” Cribb says. “I learned from him that when the production quality is really low with a rag-tag drum set, they say it sounds ‘yard.’ Those are the records with the most personality.”
