Randy was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan to blue collar parents working at the Ford motor assembly line. His first exposure to music came from his dad’s record collection, listening to legends like Ray Charles, B.B. King, John Lee Hooker, Big Mama Thornton and Muddy Waters. "As far back as I could remember, he'd come home from work and spin those blues records," Scott recalled. "And my mom would always be in the kitchen with the radio tuned to Motown hits."
Randy attended G.I.T. and poured his soul into music. After struggles and frustration he stopped playing completely and sold every guitar he had. Nine years later he wandered into a Guitar Center. A store manager heard Randy riffing on a guitar and suggested he enter into the King of the Blues competition, the nationwide search for the next great undiscovered blues guitar player. On a fluke he entered and ended up advancing beyond thousands of other guitarists to be named winner of Guitar Center's 4th annual King of the Blues.
Now, Blues/rock guitarist Randy Scott has stormed back to the music scene with a fiery style and virtuosity seldom seen before. Scott has fast become the new guitar gunslinger from out of nowhere onto the pages of Guitar World Magazine. "Extremely Tasteful" says Brad Tolinkski, Editor-in-Chief of Guitar World Magazine. “Randy Scott put on a tremendous performance—one that we'll remember for years to come. He definitively earned the title of King of the Blues." Dustin Hinz, Director of Music and Entertainment Marketing for Guitar Center.
Randy is now working on his debut album and instructional DVD to be released in Spring 2011 with supporting tour!
