ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Scott's music is folk-jazz, fingerstyle six and twelve string guitar, interweaving rhythm with haunting melody, taking you on an inward journey.

Scott was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, October 26, 1958. He was raised in Wauwatosa, a suburb of Milwaukee. He began studying guitar at age 8. His first guitar was a 3/4 size Epiphone acoustic. In 1968 his parents bought him his first electric guitar, a Gibson SG Junior. At the age of 12 Scott formed a garage band called Stalled Vehicle and was busy playing the hits of the day. In his senior hear of high school he took Music Theory and started writing music. Scott and his friends formed a band called The Seventh Circle, and recorded original music for the first time. Shortly after high school Scott began drifting away from electric guitar. In 1978 he discovered a recording on a small label called Takoma Records, featuring 6 and 12 string acoustic guitar, by the founder of the label, John Fahey, also featuring Leo Kottke and Peter Lang. It lit a fire under him. In 1979 Scott studied Flamenco guitar for a year at the Milwaukee Conservatory, where he learned to use his fingers, instead of a pick. In 1980 he released his first album, "Sailor's Dream", which received air play in Milwaukee and was sold through the local music outlets. In 1981 Scott packed up and headed to southern California to pursue his dream. In 1986 he moved north to the San Francisco Bay area, where he lived for 15 years. In 2002 he moved to Bellingham, Washington, where he recorded material relaeased in 2007 on his second recording, "Sound Shadows", featuring six and twelve string guitar.

Oddly enough, 26 years after the recording of his first album, "Sailor's Dream", a well-known hip hop artist sampled the entire song, "Grow", added vocals and instruments, and released it on his album. Also, selections from "Sailor's Dream" are being reissued by a Chicago based label Numero, on a collection of guitar soloists, in 2008.

"Sailor's Dream" will be re-released on CD in 2008.

Scott is 49, divorced, has two kids, and resides in Birch Bay, Washington.
