I think Kevin showed a great instinct for the music. I look forward to playing with him again.” – Fred Wesley (James Brown, Parliament)
“Kevin Scott is one of the funkiest bass players i’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. His groove is so deep Jules Verne is writing a book about it. He’s a great musician and a great guy. I can’t stand him!” – Nick Etwell (Mumford and Sons, Beck)

After 15 years on the Atlanta music scene, bassist Kevin Scott is expanding his musical and geographic reach. In the last year, he has toured and recorded with Jimmy Herring and John McLaughlin’s “Meeting of the Spirits,” Wayne Krantz, FORQ, Donny McCaslin, and Wednesday Night Titans. Kevin’s creative spirit and instinctual, groove-driven playing have made him a must-have on many exciting and unique projects. Although his itinerary has him travelling more than ever with no signs of slowing, he remains a musical pillar in Atlanta, where he has been a member of multiple bands including Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics and King Baby, and hosts the long-standing Monday night jam session at 529; an improvised, no-holds-barred weekly summit of musicians from all genres and backgrounds. There is much to look forward to in 2020 and beyond…world tours with FORQ, Wayne Krantz, Matador!, Wednesday Night Titans Donny McCaslin, and U.S. and international dates with Jimmy Herring, and the release of a Jimmy Herring/John McLaughlin live album recorded last fall in San Francisco.
