Scott describes the formation of his musical style, “I started music as a bass player, but when it came to singing and writing songs, all my favorite writers played guitar or piano, and I started writing there. But while in Ricky Skaggs’ band, I was performing '20/20 Vision' in the show, which began with just the bass and my voice ... it was a revelation. I realized that this sound, this concept could work, and I honestly wondered why I hadn't had the courage to do it before. So I started writing songs on the bass. I tried to make the bass parts complete arrangements with harmony and rhythm, and weave my melodies between all that - the first song I wrote that way was “Fighting for the Wrong Side”. And that’s when the music became unique. Not for unique sake, but just because I was finally bringing all of my varied skills to the table and doing something that few others could, and it was where I felt I could give my best to the music.”
He has shared the stage with some of the greatest artists of modern music, such as: Alison Krauss, Barry Gibb of the BeeGees, Bruce Hornsby, Brad Paisley, Peter Frampton, Emmylou Harris, Dave Barnes, Ben Rector, and many more.
