Born in Glasgow Scotland and raised in Bishopton, Renfrewshire before moving to England 18 years ago.
I started playing Flute in Primary school but didn't last very long and switched to playing drums. Then when I started High School, there were too many people who wanted to do Percussion, so I ended up playing the Trombone, purely cos they said my front teeth were too big for a Trumpet mouthpiece...the bastards.
But by that time I was 13 yrs old and my love for heavy metal was blossoming so I craved to learn the guitar. But I stuck with the drums and joined my mates Logie and Nizzy in a band originally called Fear, but was then renamed to The Unlawful, but we started referring to ourselves as The Goddamn bloody awful lol. For my 18th birthday I got money and went out and bought my first ever guitar. A black and white Tanglewood strat and taught myself how to play....ish lol.
So over the years, I've learned to play a bit of bass, keyboards and piano and can kind of sing...ish.
I played in a Metallica tribute band for 9 years and decided to give it up and concentrate on writing and recording my own album. It's always been a dream of mine just to be able to hold my own CD in my hand, so I thought, sod it, I'm not getting any younger, so let's do this. So in 2017 I started recording the songs I had shortlisted for the album in my home studio, and in Nov 2017, went into White Bear Studios and started engineering, and mixing what was to become 'A Long Way From Sanity'. I'm immensely proud of it, and with just a few loose ends to tie up, it should be ready fro release in March or April 2019. What happens next is anyone's guess, but one mans dream has almost come true.
Thanks for reading and thank you for the amazing support. Scott x
