Scott Bishop


Fuzz boxes and acoustic guitars duel it out over tales of heartbreak and discovery.


Scott Bishop was born just before the legendary "Summer of '69" that Bryan Adams so eloquently sang about. He grew up in a little city in New Hampshire, and thanks to such noise-pop pioneers as Bob Mould, Buffalo Tom and My Bloody Valentine, ditched art in Savannah, GA in favor of songwriting, and eventually moved to Boston where he started Slippy Keane with his dear friend Sean Hennessey and drummer Josh Pickering. He's continued in bands and on his own since.
