"Here's what a recent client had to say about Scott!"

I sent him a contemporary independent song to learn for me to walk down the aisle to, and the first time I heard his version of it, I was so moved I cried. He was early for both the rehearsal and the ceremony, very professional, and looked immaculate in his tux. I would definitely recommend him to anyone that is looking for someone that can perform excellently, be professional, and look professional at their event.

"Kati Schardl reviews Scott's debut album"

"Well, it's about time Scott McQuade got around to releasing his debut CD. The Tallahassee pianist can be forgiven for the delay in satisfying local fans of fine jazz. McQuade was sidetracked from performing and recording by a stroke last November that affected the right side of his body and, hence, his ability to tickle the ivories. One listen to his elegant, assured CD "Life Just Couldn't Be Better" proves McQuade has made a full recovery and is in top form.

The selections include 11 originals and one standard. McQuade's playing is warm and intimate, deft and subtle. There's no grandstanding here, just the brilliance of a master doing what he loves and does best. McQuade is assisted by members of Tallahassee's jazz elite, including vocalist Avis Berry, bass player Rodney Jordan, drummer Leon Anderson, trumpet virtuoso Longineu Parsons and sax man and singer Nathanael Fareed Mahluli. You'll want to pick up a copy at McQuade's CD-release party and performance Sunday at Chez Pierre. It's a must for every jazz lover's collection."

I recently released my debut album, "Life Just Couldn't Be Better." Check out the audio section of my EPK to listen to a few songs from the CD. The CD is available for purchase at CD Baby.


Feeling a bit camera shy


I am about to enter my 17th year as a professional musician. Originally from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, I have lived in Florida for the past nine years, two of which were in Cape Canaveral while working on a cruise ship. I have been based out of Tallahassee and worked throughout the southeast for the past six years.

I have had the opportunity to perform alongside such world-renowned jazz artists as Scotty Barnhart, Louis Bellson, Randy Brecker, Cleveland Eaton, Wycliffe Gordon, Victor Goines, Jason Marsalis, and Clark Terry. I also perform regularly with faculty and students from Florida State University, Florida A & M University, and the University of North Florida.
