Bio

Scott started out playing in the Cincinnati band The Name in 1985 with High School friends. They recorded 2 EPs over the next 4 years, and were beginning to get a bit of a buzz when Scott left for college and New York in the summer of 1989.

After performing in the New York City folk circuit, Scott recorded and released his first solo album Anything Left to Say in 1995. Over the next few years of playing out, Scott formed a group with some of the supporting musicians who'd been backing him up. The Scott Wolfson Band recorded and released Soul Elastic in 2001, giving Scott his first production credit -- one he shared with bassist and guitarist Tristan Kromer. This album, transitioning from standard folk and rock into more orchestrated fare, incorporated the solid foundation of the band with fuller arrangements.

When Scott was performing as a solo act, he would occassionally join in with a college friend of his, Mark Berube, on stage when the two were playing on the same night at folk venues. The two began performing as a duo around the city, and due to their popularity added keyboard and drums to form The Right Bastards. Their style of witty comedic banter and fun, pop music, made them a hit at clubs. Their album Nobody Likes You was recorded in 2002, but the band had broken up shortly after it's release.

Formed with the drummer from The Right Bastards, Scott's last musical project was a band called The Buzzkill All-Stars. Getting away from the pop music from his previous band, Scott began to incorporate more sophisticated styles, like jazz and world music, into the love of his youth -- punk and new wave. The band had been playing some of the all-time great clubs in NYC since 2006, based on the strength of their EP Each Stolen Kiss, but due to tension between band members they disbanded before the release of their first full-length album.

With encouragement from his songwriting friends, and a personal nudge to himself after the passing of Jack Hardy, Scott has recently re-entered the folk world as a solo performer. After a 3 year hiatus, he's back writing songs and is preparing to record a brand new album.
