Upon acquiring his first guitar at the tender age of seven, It didn’t take long before Scott realised that music was his true calling in life. Scott’s diverse musical taste would later lead to experimentations with funk, soul and indie rock, with various local bands, before finally deciding to embark on a career as a solo artist.
Scott has garnered serious critical acclaim across his ten-year career and has taken this time to nurture his craft. He was always deliberate in his actions – witnessed in the time he originally spent as a guitarist, before becoming the singer songwriter behind the ground-breaking debut album Passing Stranger. Subsequently, Robert Plant came onboard for a guest contribution on Scott’s follow-up album, Elsewhere, and down the line legendary double bassist Danny Thompson joined on Scott’s third release What The Night Delivers, having encountered each other whilst performing in Joe Boyd’s stage production of Way to Blue – The Songs of Nick Drake. Scott has also performed on a number of international sell-out tours with respected artists such as Bert Jansch, Robert Plant, Foo Fighters and Rufus Wainwright.
