Erik Scott

Erik Scott

Erik Scott (Youtube Sample)

Erik Scott began his recording career in the sixties, very much a child of those cultural revolutions. As he was exposed to more and more disparate musicians and artists in the 70s and 80s, he advanced his playing to adapt to the differing and often unruly styles of the music world, and composing, production, and arrangement skills had opportunity to blossom. In addition to recording and touring with Flo & Eddie of the Turtles (70s), Alice Cooper (80s), and Sonia Dada (1990-2005), he co-wrote and played the title song from Pop Staples' Grammy winning "Father Father", and wrote and/or recorded with many others including Kim Carnes, Mavis Staples, and Carl Palmer. He also wrote and recorded original music for television shows like Charlie's Angels, Starsky and Hutch, Vegas and Loveboat. His music has also appeared in films such as "Nothing to Lose" and "Waterproof".

In the last several years he has allowed himself to make new music, sometimes called cinematic, spacey, emotional or haunting, unfiltered by rules and strictures of the pop world, or even by purists who get nervous when traditional musical boundaries get crossed. Using the electric bass as the main melodic voice, and even as a source of sound effects, is only one of the ways he creates the largely instrumental music informed by all the influences of his years, from Elvis' "Jailhouse Rock" to "Bolero" by Ravel. Videos and more info about Erik and his three solo albums, "Other Planets", "and the Earth Bleeds", and "Spirits" can be accessed at his website...,http://www.erikscottbass.com
