I am a Canadian bass player, composer,arranger ,sound engineer and recording artist. My musical repertoire spans a diverse range of music. It combines elements of rock, orchestral, electronic synthesis and sound design to create imaginative and diverse music that blend together to enhance drama and develop distinctive and immersive music. By exploring textural devices to construct evocative and colourful musical compositions; I have developed a hybrid style that share some of the same esthetics and attention to a visual narrative that some of the new classical and electronic composers of today use.
Originally from Toronto ,Scott was immersed in the 80s post punk /new romantic scene. In 1983 he produced and released a solo album called Boats In Rivers, which garnered extensive radio and video play. It also received a CASBY nomination for vocalist of the year. Two years later he released Role Boys which also became a radio and dance-floor hit , also garnering a U-Know award nomination for single of the year. He has since released six solo albums and four collaborative albums with guitarist David Barrett and The David Barrett Trio, where Scott provided full orchestral arrangements for two albums released in 2020 and 2021. Both produced by Terry Brown. Currently they have just released “Infinito” ,where Scott is playing a Rickenbacker and a fretless jazz bass, along with the best drummer in Canada- Paul DeLong on drums, and Terry Brown (Rush, Max Webster, Blue Rodeo) producing.
