This Day's for You
As a native of Colorado, Scott spent the first 19 years of his life nearly 9000 feet up in the Rockies. He started playing guitar in the early 70's around the age of 13. By the age of 16 he was the lead singer and one of a couple of guitar players for a regionally popular band called 'Load Limit'. The 7 piece southern rock style band played to standing room only crowds for a number of years. For the next 29 years he's pursued a passion of his in the area of biblical research and teaching, while still finding the time to work a day job and record on 18 albums as a multi-instrumentalist and singer. This list includes two solo records, in which he wrote and produced all the songs. The newest of these 'Safe Evermore' has been called by some, 'Ameri-Gospel-Grass'. On this project he teamed up with his friends from one of the fastest rising new bluegrass bands in the country 'Hit and Run Bluegrass' out of Boulder. The second titled 'This Day's For You' was recorded in Austin Texas in 1997,and re-released in 2008. Along with his friends Leon Hanson, George Hackett and Dean Ellenwood, Scott was joined by national flat picking champion Mike Whitehead, former players from the bands of Linda Ronstadt and Willie Nelson, as well as the great violinist Danny Levin. Though these records are Gospel in nature he does write other songs. He wrote the song 'Love Never Fails' used in one of the top theatrical productions in the country 'Christy The Musical' which ran for over four years. His fun, disarming, and easy going stage presence mixes well with a clear, strong voice, and his top shelf musicianship on the guitar.
