Asylum’s Way is a band of friends that have come together to create this CD. With our varied back grounds and the influence of growing up in the sixties and seventies, our music reflects our lives.
The core of Asylum’s Way consists of Michael and Lorri Scott who are the singer/songwriters of the band and Danny Gross the lead guitar player. Working as a trio they create a solid Folk/Rock sound with influences ranging from Nova Scotia to Texas.
When we bring Jerry Brocklehurst into the mix our sound expands and possibilities grow. With his talented key board playing and knowledge of song structure he was invaluable in helping with song arrangement. He is currently living on the Island of Kauai in Hawaii working on his record label "New Boomer Music", the Kauai Music Festival and other music endeavors.
Then we mix in some special guests. Pipa Pinon singing backing vocals and helping with vocal arrangements, Patti Maxine and her fine slide guitar and Gary Kehoe percussion.
We round the band out with our hired guns the rhythm section, Jim Norris on drums and Daniel Vee Louis on Bass. Daniel was the producer on this CD and with his expertise, imagination and Jim’s solid drumming we have Asylum’s Way
Excerpt from CD booklet:
This is a collection of tunes that Lorri and I wrote
with the intention of exploring our creative side and
having fun. Along the way Jerry Brocklehurst and Danny Gross
got a hold of them and helped us mold them into songs.
Without their help and amazing talents along with the
producing genius of Daniel Vee Lewis and vocal coaching
by Pipa Pinon this album would not have happened.
The Scott's new CD is great.
I loved the lyrics and the tunes,
even every woman's theme song--"Take me out."

Just finished listening to your CD and I really like it. Cool music -- great lyrics -- professional sound -- beautiful cover art. You and Michael and everyone else should be proud of what you've accomplished. Thanks for sending me a copy...
.Better yet.....Hannah likes it too -- and she isn't shy about telling me to "turn it off, Pop," when she DOESN'T like something. And to show she's got good taste, she's become a total Beatle-maniac.
