NOTES
Toronto born musician and composer, has been making music and producing for 30 years. In the early 80s, he was strongly involved in the Toronto electronic music scene. Specifically the art rock and experimental music that was breaking ground at that time with artists like Brian Eno ,Kraftwerk and Japan. Scott played in many bands, but eventually felt a need to release solo material that focused on the more experimental and ambient. Deciding to focus on fretless bass as a featured instrument, he released a solo album called "Boats In Rivers", which garnered extensive radio play and video play for the single. Two years later he released "Role Boys". Both singles were nominated for U-know awards and Casby awards in Canada in 1983 and 1986. In 2005 ,he and long time friend and guitarist David Barrett,(David Barrett trio) released an album of instrumentals entitled "Amitahba". In 2009 they followed it up with an album called "Radium Lustre". In 2012 Scott released " My Fathers' Paintings"An album of 8 original songs that Scott wrote and performed all the vocals and instruments.

In 2015, Scott will release another project called "Static IP". Eight instrumental electronic tracks that are strongly grounded in the style of old school Euro/Germanic electronica.

In late 2015 Scott will release "Crazy Ivan" . Nine new prog-rock songs that further explore tales of soldiers, the sun, the sea and the sand. Featuring guest musicians Paul Shilton, Dale Anne Brendon, Tim Smythe and David Barrett.
