Robert Bruce Scott: Vocals, Celtic Harp, Classical Guitar
The 5th RBS solo cd has to be one of the most beautiful albums on cdbaby. The first track, Garden Song, is worth the price of admission alone. Heart and Soul is a collection of modern Art Songs created with pristine Celtic harp and thunderous, virtuoso classical guitar performances. Robert’s poetry, as always, is involved and evocative.
But by far the most distinctive aspect of this new album is the vocal performance. Robert trades in his trademark powerhouse rock vocals for a very controlled, cultured, lyric style, only attainable by an operatic tenor at the peak of his training and performance.
In addition to his work with il Troubadore - Indy’s 16th Century Rock Band - already a powerhouse in the American mid-west, Robert Bruce Scott has now begun performing solo with the Celtic harp and classical guitar. For booking information, he can be contacted at robert@ArtistStudio.com
Since the age of 14, Robert Bruce Scott has been playing professionally as a solo guitarist and with a long line of bands in which he played at various times bass guitar, keyboards, lead guitar, drums, and was most often the lead singer. He studied voice at Cameron University in Lawton, Oklahoma and graduated in 1985.
In 1989 he put together The Source to record an experimental rock album, Embryo, later released on a single cd with another album (see discography below). In 1997 Robert put together another band, Three Trees, which released two cds (see below). In 2002, he assembled the 16th Century Rock Band and released another cd, Bonnie Rose. After moving from Lawton to Indianapolis, he joined with Jon Silpayamanant in 2004 to create il Troubadore - Indy’s 16th Century Rock Band.
During this time from 2003 to present, RBS has released five entirely unique solo albums, each project distinct from the others and also from the albums he produced with The Source, Three Trees, The 16th Century Rock Band, and il Troubadore.
