SCOTT WAINWRIGHT – a Yorkshire based singer-songwriter and instrumentalist. His music draws from various musical genres including Blues, Gospel, Folk, Jazz and Hip Hop as well as various ‘World’ musics, such as African, Hawaiian and Indian.
Working with acoustic finger style and bottleneck guitar, harmonica and occasional ukulele, Scott draws on his wide love for these types of music and celebrates the joy of pure creativity.
In January 2023, Scott released his twelfth studio album, ‘Dark Money’, which is a collection of longer form vocal pieces, blues, folk and roots songs and just a a dash of questing spiritual jazz. All these recent albums have received rave reviews from critics and fans alike.
All of Scott’s work evokes a wide range of emotions and feelings from his listeners, as he tackles subjects such as love, life, death, loss, hope and the possibility of being ‘wrong’ about everything.
Over the last few years Cerys Matthews has played a number of Scott’s songs on her ‘Blues Show’ on BBC Radio 2, which has generated a wider interest in his work.
Throughout the year, Scott can be found playing extensive shows all over the UK. Every performance is delivered with creativity, passion and a large dose homespun humour.
