Scrote is a guitarist/producer from Los Angeles. In addition to his LA-based work, he also consistently works in San Francisco, Austin, New York, Berlin, and many places in between and beyond. He has performed across the US, Germany, Egypt, Holland, Spain, Switzerland, Hungary, France, Denmark, Belgium, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Austria, Czech Republic, Poland, Italy, Bulgaria, and Monaco.
Though an active producer and guitarist, Scrote began a mission in 2011 to release new music and play shows of his own every six months. His self titled debut, "Scrote", saw two more releases in 2012: "Pompadour" and "Never Let The Little Man Down". Spring 2013 he unleashed "Beautifully Loud" with the help of pals Jeff Babko on keys & Blair Sinta on drums.
"Beautifully Loud" includes an eclectic array of topics: killers in love "Two Days", Feng Shui guidelines "Assess, Price, & Value", death by fire "No Miracle", impending Alzheimers "All Her Memories", anti-authority battle cry "Musta Been Outside", social decay "I See", discovery of a "Pocket Of Secrets", personal struggle "So When's It Done?", a backlash to heartbreak "Just Because I Want To", and a haunting ode to a train "Beautifully Loud".
The album cover features a mannequin from the Milk Bar in Stanley Kubrick's "Clockwork Orange" recently shot by LA photographer Marc Evans.
