About Kevin Scott

Kevin Scott holding his electric guitar. Bassist Kevin Scott’s visceral playing and explorer’s spirit have become his hallmarks in multiple musical circles. He has recently been heard marauding the low end with Wayne Krantz, Jimmy Herring, Donny McCaslin, John McLaughlin, Nicholas Payton, FORQ, and Wednesday Night Titans, his multimedia duo with drummer and programmer Zach Danziger.

Kevin’s musical roots are in Atlanta, where blues surrealist Colonel Bruce Hampton and jazz/fusion trumpeter Russel Gunn gave him room to run. These bizarre and beautiful musical adventures shaped him as an impresario as he headed up Atlanta Funk Society and productions with The ATL Collective featuring iconic drummer Bernard Purdie, whom Kevin considers a friend, mentor, and profound influence. For over a decade, Kevin hosted a weekly jam session that encompassed experimental music and performance art of almost any stripe, becoming an incubator for Atlanta’s creative community. He has also produced various recordings including the singles “Fix” and “Wait” by WiseTale, Music from a Fallout Shelter by The Church Basement Band, Extra Vehicular Activity by The Talismen, and Sunbelt Bliss by Ryan Knight. Kevin’s playing is in the moment and of the moment, and his expression is infused with a joyful menace that has proven magnetic to a growing and increasingly rarified list of fellow travelers.
