ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes

James Scott is a solo finger-style steel string guitarist. His love of the guitar began at the age of 13 and truly began to take hold after studying with guitarist Stan Lassiter. That is when he saw the true potential of the instrument, the sonic and emotional depth the instrument had to offer. "My Dad played an interesting role in my musical life as well." "He's had this uncanny ability to steer me in directions that have ultimately led me to being the musician I am today." My Dad is the one that turned me onto Stan Lassiter as well as Windham Hill Records, which is the label that gave the world Alex DeGrassi, Michael Hedges and Will Ackerman, some of my biggest influencs as being a Composer for the guitar."

Having a background in Jazz, Avant-garde, Blues, Bluegrass, and Celtic music James Scott has been working towards synthesizing elements of each of these musics into his own personal vision. "I strongly feel that the role Music plays today is not the role it was intended to play. It was never intended for Music to be a distraction." "Music is the highest of all art forms because it deals with vibration. Everything in the known Universe is Vibrating, therefore everything is Music." The role of the Musician is to help tune people to higher frequencies of thought and emotion." "As humans becomes more disconnected from the Natural World, and simultaneously more technologically advanced, we lose touch with the essence of who we are and that truth that we all have originated from the same source of everything." We are also losing touch with our own humanity. My intention is to reestablish those connections. I hope this Music fulfills these roles of connecting people back to themselves and the natural world." "This Music encourages you to reflect on life, your relationship with others and the planet. And, I hope it encourages you to dream."

His website www.jamesscottguitar.com should be online soon and will contain information on performances and ways to purchase his music.

He is available for venue performances as well as house concerts. His newest musical venture into the world of Solo Finger style Guitar, Letters From Sonora, is now available.
