"Well, your songs are astonishingly beautiful - one man and a guitar! Really, gives me chills and brings tears (of joy!) to my eyes. Thanks so much for enriching our music library with your music."
~ Carmen Allgood, World Wide Waves syndicated radio shows, March 2012

"Waiting for the Sun is lovely, lovely, lovely . . . absolutely lovely."
~ Michael Gulezian

"Scott's talent is amazing, and we've received such fantastic feedback on his CDs."
~Shannon Tietjen, 2006

"Scott's CD is a delightful display of solo acoustic guitar prowess. At times, there are themes of William Ackerman while he maintains an overall style that is his own. Casual, mellow, intricate, emotive...the list could go on to describe this enjoyable CD. And with a song titled "Black Kitten at 44 Greenwich Street," you just have to take a listen."
