Scott Wainwright

Yorkshire based musician and performing artist Scott Wainwright has been a regular feature on his local music scene for the last ten years, offering audiences an energetic and eclectic take on blues, folk and gospel music.
He has released numerous albums; EP’s and singles over the years, which have ranged in style from ‘Electric Blues and Hip Hop’ fusions (Every Man Has His Critics) to solo instrumental guitar workouts (What We Cannot Hold). In between these releases there have been regular bouts of ‘Lo-Fi’ folk (All That Glitters is Not Gold) and the odd dabbling as a singer songwriter (Whisper’s from a Kind River), but for now, our hero seems to have settled on acoustic blues (Bric A Brac Blues) and the more experimental style country blues of his latest offering ‘Strangers Here’.
All of his albums evoke a wide range of emotions and feelings from his listeners, as he tackles subjects such as love, life, death, loss, hope and the possibility of being ‘wrong’ about everything.
Scott plays extensive shows all over the place, both as a solo performer and as part of various duos and bands. Solo performances see Scott using Voice, Guitar, Harmonica, Foot Stomps and occasional Banjo to entertain and bewilder his audiences. Every performance comes with and element of homespun humor.

What the Press Says

Scott Wainwright is a cool, acoustic gospel blues dude and he quickly has everyone nodding their heads with foot stomping guitar and powerful gospel vocals. Impressively for the song Down the Line he manages somehow to pull off beatboxing, harmonica playing and foot stomping all at the same time. He is an interesting and talented character who inspires good spirits.

Blues and Roots with a definite playful and experimental edge, Scott is a man with a message and he lets his faith do the talking...Taking Dr. John and a little bit of Captain Beefheart and mixing it up with some holy Rollin’. Check it out.

Zany, madcap, and off the wall, are just three of the phrases that I scribbled down, when listening to the latest album from the Yorkshire based artist, Scott Wainwright…
NFN Magazine

Just to give you an idea Scott plays guitar, harmonica, piano, banjo, percussion, melodica, jewish harp, bass, toys and he sings too and it’s all a bit one-man-band goes into the studio and takes his musician mates along to help out…this is no bad thing and the result is a beautifully raw and honest record that it’s difficult not to love.
