Philadelphia, PA-based freelance acoustic guitarist-vocalist, averaging 150 social and business solo gigs annually since 2002. Extensive memorized repertoire, spanning the decades and genres, Bach to Rock: classic-prog-soft-indie rock, standards, soul, R & B, lite FM, lite jazz, oldies, hits and album cuts, plus classical, instrumental, traditional, bluegrass, Irish and holiday music, performed 100% live and by memory -- no backing tracks, drum machine, lyric sheets, written music, tablet or screen. Ivy-educated. General liability insured. Professionalism, musicianship and client satisfaction are my focuses.

Almost all of my repertoire was and is learned by ear. Arrangements are holistic and often pianistic. I do the whole thing, not just guitar and vocal parts, incorporating all parts from the recordings, plus a range of guitar techniques, improvisation and composition. Requests are welcome. Guests singers too, when appropriate. Whatever it takes for folks to have a great time. It's always my pleasure to make music and entertain!

We booked Scott for an anniversary party at a small venue. Scott is very talented and has a long playlist of songs. He was able to play every song that was requested. He arrived early and was set up before the guests arrived. His personality lends itself to mixing well with the crowd. We received many comments from our guests saying how much they enjoyed him. We would book him again in a heartbeat and highly recommend him to others.
