About Michael Scott
Michael Scott (singer, songwriter and musician). Michael (Mike) was born in Seattle and has lived in the area most of his life. After discovering a love for music as a boy he tried out a ukulele as a first instrument. He was later influenced by many bands during the ‘60s and ‘70s. Mike became a fan of Rock and Roll and Classic Rock and started taking guitar lessons in his teenage years. In high school and college he played guitar with several bands that he formed with friends. Along the way he gained experience singing and playing acoustic, electric, and bass guitar and also has written and recorded a number of original songs. Playing for live audiences started in high school and later evolved into opportunities to play with different bands around the Puget Sound area over the years. Mike played in a number of classic rock cover bands, including The Edge in the early 2000's and a band called JADE in 2007. Later he played with a band with some members of The Edge and the band name changed to "GOODSON" (Ted Goodson influenced the band name and he is a great keyboard player, musician and singer...and friend). That lasted until 2017. Besides classic rock, he enjoys playing acoustic guitar and singing a blend of rock, country, pop and folk songs. He has written and recorded a number of original songs over the years and some of those are featured on the website. More recently Mike has been playing with some of the former members of JADE doing acoustic versions of rock, country and pop tunes, jamming and playing solo gigs. He is a big fan of Neil Young's work and some people say he sounds a lot like the man. When playing solo gigs he often will sing a few Neil Young songs as well as doing some original tunes. Sometimes a Neil Young tribute show is in order, and is great fun to do! Music is part of our culture; it brings people together and connects us all with memories of the past and with the events of the present. Live music always goes well with celebrations, social gatherings and special events. Adding good friends, food, wine, beer or spirits doesn’t hurt either.
