Home Page My Oregon band: Wine Without Reason

Scott Calamar

A singer/songwriter with East Coast and West Coast overtones, Calamar's music reflects influences including The Beatles/John Lennon, Michael Nesmith, Harry Nilsson, Randy Newman, Elvis Costello, Billy Joel, Paul Simon, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Todd Rundgren, Elton John, Fleetwood Mac, David Byrne, David Bowie, Thomas Dolby and maybe a fifth of Beethoven. Scott's dad drummed during the Big Band era and his mom's mother was a concert pianist, often playing for silent movies. Scott has been writing songs for over 40 years, mostly multi-tracking his music and doing rare open mics in the Southern Oregon area, though he played with the band Smatter in the late 70s and sporadically to this day. After sitting out the performing music scene for over thirty years, Scott decided to give his repertoire life and wings and formed Wine Without Reason in August of 2010. "My calling as a songwriter is not to make people dance (though we love when they do), but to make people feel and think," Calamar says. Expect more solo and band music from him shortly.
