This Soft Life
Led by singer/guitarist Ashen Keilyn, Scout has firmly established itself as one of NYC's top and most sought after bands. Scout's sound is a fascinating mixture of infectious melodies perfectly intertwined with powerful and adventurous riffs. What sets this band apart, though, is Keilyn's voice. While smoky and intoxicating, it never loses that edgy rock and roll attitude. Signed in 2000 by NYC indie label, ModMusic Records, Scout recorded it's first full length record, "It seemed like a good idea at the time." It was released to stellar reviews in everything from Billboard to Rockpile and debuted in the Top 30 of the CMJ & Hits Chart. It was also the second most added record on college radio. In 2003, the long anticipated sophomore album, co-recorded and mixed with Carl Glanville (Patti Smith, Joan Jett, and Jesse Malin) while he was on hiatus from U2's latest project, was released to even more accolades. Scout's music has been featured in numerous film and television programs, including the soundtrack for WB's 'Felicity'. Scout has appeared and performed on an episode of HBO's The Sopranos and NBC's 'Late Night With Conan O'Brien.' The band is currently in the studio finishing up tracks for their latest record and is anxiously anticipating the kickoff of another nationwide tour starting this summer.
