Will Scott: Press

2009 Independent Music Awards finalist, Album of the Year, Blues Category

"One of the best CDs I have heard in years... A perfect voice for Southern style music... We'll gladly lay claim to him here."

You ever just fall in love with an artist’s music the very first time you heard them play? Such was the case with the music of Will Scott... It’s been a while since an artist captivated my attention the way Will Scott has done... it is indeed a breath of fresh air to hear something so real, so honest, from an independent artist.

"Top Ten best selling records of the year, 2009, at Music Matters"

"Editor's Pick" in Juke Joint Blues category. Gnawbone also reached #2 on CDBaby's Americana Chart, #1 on their Juke Joint Blues Chart, and #1 in its "mood" category.

"Scott has the unique ability to deliver a song vocally with the soul and passion that drives a song home. His vocal presence is astounding."

Semi-finalist for Blues song category, "Gnawbone" (written by Will Scott and Christopher "Preacher Boy" Watkins)

Top 50 tracks to download. "Indianan adds a tribal beat to his Delta blues and sounds like that ol’ hellhound isn’t too far off his trail. Few people manage to make the blues modern. Will Scott is one of them."

Solid, heavy, trance-like rhythms bubblin' up from a cool Mississippi hill country spring with just a sweet bit of twang. A timeless, layered voice somewhere between our patron saint, The Swamp Fox, Tony Joe White and the great Gordon Lightfoot after a three day whiskey-bent bender. He's a soulful and gifted songwriter with a sound thick as Tupelo honey. This album knocked us out. We got the title track on eleven here at Southern Brand, shakin' the shingles. Check him out here. Buy this man's music. Catch him live.

"Gnawbone is a beauty... finished to perfection, both instrumental and vocal."
- Roots Time, Belgium (Aug 21, 2009)

...A remarkable artist, who knows good songwriting... Just Class!"

More Reviews and Press

"Will Scott, his voice as thick as blood, sometimes accompanies with guitar; his weird liturgies bring out the pathos in pop."

New York Press

"Between his uniquely beautiful voice, talented six-string skills and haunting melodies, Scott shines a ray of light into a dark and dying music industry."

Anchorage Daily News

"Guitarist Will Scott has a good vibrato and a knack for surprises"

Blues Revue

"Scott is a real find, with a very high ceiling... Scott’s fingerpicking was fiery, fast and effortless, and so were his vocals... he’s a whole lot more interesting than Cephas and Wiggins."
