Scott’s extraordinary debut ‘Bald On The Inside’ brought national press attention, with Guitarist (magazine) describing thus: “This is impressive, world-class stuff and if you like great guitar playing you should definitely check it out.” All the UK guitar magazines followed suit drawing comparisons to legendary guitarists such as Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai and Steve Lukather.
With this in mind Scott embarked on a UK wide tour of Borders stores performing live showcases in Starbucks which generated enough sales to send it shooting into their top 200 sellers list in 2004.
The press reaction to this debut gave Tim opportunity to work alongside the legendary Radio 1 DJ Judge Jules on the track ‘Puesta Del Sol’ blending original Spanish guitar with slamming Techno.
The ‘Guitar Mashing’ phenomenon was born out of Ibiza during the Radio 1 events of 2005/2006 where Tim improvised live guitar over Judge Jules funky set at Judgement Sundays mashing famous riffs mixed with hooks from his second album over the beats to an enthused audience.
Scott’s second album ‘Guitar Mashing’ was described by Guitar Techniques (magazine) thus: “It’s not often we declare a guitar album to be outstanding” with Guitarist (magazine) following suit saying “The interesting arrangements and tones that Scott has used here give the oft-tired guitar instrumental album formula a real shot in the arm, making sure that this album comes very highly recommended.”
The following single ‘Amy Jane’ caused a storm with Total Guitar (magazine) placing it at number 9 in their top 10 tracks to download in the December 2009 edition.
Single number three towards the third album ‘Cataclysmic Pink’ was pronounced by CityLife thus: “Cataclysmic Pink is an astute meeting of worlds - a sonic car crash you might expect to end in tears, but one Scott's utterly exotic style of guitar playing manages to meld incredibly satisfyingly.”
Some say he sounds like Carlos Santana because of the substantial Spanish/Balearic quintessence others recognise the vocal like melodic rock guitar tones that only could be influenced by the likes of Dave Gilmore and Brian May.
But crossing virtuoso guitar with main stream genres such as Drum & Bass, Trance, Electro, Dubstep and House is something you would not expect to mesh but remarkably Tim blends together exceptionally!
Tim is currently working on the seventh single towards his third album which has pushed the guitar mashing concept to the limit with ultra-slick production mixed with instantly recognisable hooks in his own inimitable style.
