The original music of R. Scott is a unique mix of deep soul, New Orleans-style r & b, jazz, blues, cabaret and pop styles forging a sound of its own. Scott has worked as a composer, bandleader, songwriter, keyboardist & producer with a roster of artists that has been evolving since 1995. Taking a journeyman’s approach, he continues to build a varied body of work.
Over the years, I’ve shared the stage with alt/rock legends Sublime, Nirvana, Frank Black, Dramarama, The Stranglers, Mike Watt, Money Mark; neo-groove masters Black Eyed Peas, Ozomatli, The Greyboy Allstars, Galactic and even jazz/fusionists Hiroshima. Releases have had air time all over North America (KROQ, KCRW, KPFK, KUCI, KXLU in L.A./O.C. alone), Europe and Japan. Since my first solo disc in 2007, I have made it a goal to issue an original music release a year. I have 15 releases to my name – so far, so good.
Accomplishments: Numerous film/tv placements (1995-present); Southern California Acoustic Music Competition 1st runner-up (2007); Just Plain Folks Best Blues Song nominee (The Kiss – 2006); Orange County Music Awards Best Blues winner (2004-2005).
