Biography

Scrabbel was formed in 1999 by two old high school friends Dan Lee and Becky Barron. On the strength of their debut show in 2000 at a sold out event for the San Francisco Intl’ Asian American Film Festival, they were approached by a label to record a record. They released their first full length in 2001 on Kittridge Records. The music was full of imagination and incorporated unconvential instruments such as a Speak n Spell. The self titled CD was rated 4 out of 5 stars in the All Music Guide and the SF Weekly’s review called it “a Sgt. Pepper’s for the twee set”.

In 2002, the duo split up, but Dan Lee continued to work under the name Scrabbel. Highly influenced by all things ‘65 to ‘75, Dan drew upon his love for bands like the Beatles, Love, the Who, the Zombies, Bowie, and T Rex to create the follow up.

He took time off in 2003 to become the keyboard player for the Aislers Set, and toured extensively around the US and Europe. In between tours, Dan worked hard writing new songs and building a new live band to perform as Scrabbel.

Current lineup is Dan Lee(gtr, vox, keys, bass, clarinet), Atsushi Murase(bass, gtr, keys), Hellen Jo(cello, keys, shakers), Stanley Lam(gtr, bg vox, bass, shakers), Aya Nakamura(vox, bells, melodica), Chris Cline(drums), and other guests from time to time.

    ...Whatever happened to Scrabbel? They were working on an album in 2008, when they released Emily, I, and have heard or seen absolutely nothing since. The fact that I was the last person to write on their band page here says it all really. Must surely have split up or given up or something. Such a shame.
