SCOTT TURCHIN began this life in a small Southern town, wandered throughout the rural South and hopped a banana boat for Jamaica, where life was one great song after another.
All day, all night, Marianne.
Or so it would seem.
Born to hardworking, intense New York City parents who brought him to California in the crazy 60s, Scott grew up on a steady diet of folk, rock and world music. Dreaming of being a great rock singer like Lou Gramm or David Bowie, SCOTT played James Taylor, Cat Stevens, Neil Young and Leonard Cohen songs like they were his own in many duos and bands, and later inspired by Sting, Seal and Don Henley, he started to write. Later, he was called by the Reggae music to write from and understand the Rasta perspective.
Often compared to a wide range of artists, including Dave Matthews, John Hiatt, Johnny Clegg, Van Morrison, Steve Earle, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Tom Petty and Ben Harper, his SCOTT TURCHIN BAND plays throughout the Los Angeles area.
SCOTT's music has won recognition from local and national songwriter organizations, and earned "Editor's Choice" in both Roots Rock and Reggae from distributor CDBABY for his first album, SCOTT TURCHIN, and RIVER CAN CRY has been racking up the awards on peer review site GarageBand.com!
Former Director of the Westside Song Circle, Scott is also an actor on stage, in voiceovers, TV and in film.
