Long before performing on stage in front of thousands at venues such as the Nokia theater (Hollywood, CA) and the Georgia Dome (Atlanta, GA), Greg Scott an American singer-songwriter Multi-instrumentalist and Record producer was born Gregory John Scott II on September 24th, 1982 in the small town of Chico, CA. Scott grew up watching his Dad perform fearlessly. Greg found his love of music and charisma through the voice and presence of his rock and soul singing Father Greg Scott Sr. Growing up performing and rehearsing night after night the life style became normal for Scott. While also feeling the need and passion to write and produce Greg looked over the shoulders of many engineers and songwriters and slowly started to learn to record and produce himself. By age 17 Scott had already written and recorded an album, put together a band and produced shows to promote the record all around his home town leading Greg to perform with The Platters Motown Review and with multi-platinum recording artists K-Ci & JoJo. After graduating from high school and doing as much as he could in such a small town, and being “Chico” famous he moved to the San Francisco Bay Area.
While attending a singer/songwriter retreat organized by then vocal coach Seth Riggs, Greg met his Manager/Author/Mentor and Music Business mogul Michael A. Aczon. Scott then was taught to hone his songwriting skills. Through his stint of time with his management he was introduced to Roberta Flack-"Killing me Softly”. Flack heard a song of his and was floored. Impressed by Greg’s voice and sound Flack compared him to the legendary Atlantic Records recording artist Donny Hathaway and flew him out to sing for her music school for underprivileged youth based in NYC.
After many shows and album releases Scott felt that he out grew the Bay Area and his Management. Greg decided to make the jump to a bigger pond. His fiancé, now wife, decided in an impulsive decision drive to Los Angeles and pursue their dreams. Without a plan and little to nothing in savings and without any gigs or any connections Scott hit the jam scene. Greg picked up any gig he could find. Still writing and producing in make shift studio spaces, Greg was greeted with open arms in Los Angeles meeting all the great musicians and songwriters the city had to offer. Currently Scott am writing and releasing music with writers and producers such as Rob Kliener (Sia, David Guetta, Andra Day). Greg is currently performing at venues across the greater LA area and has a residency at Mastro’s, Beverly Hills and the Lucky Strike Live in Hollywood. Scott’s LIVE performances have been inspired and compared to Prince and Bruno Mars.
