Scott Bradoka is on a mission to restore instrumental music to its rightful glory. Scott’s latest release, Live and Loose, was called the “Best Live Guitar Fusion Album of 2003” by 20th Century Guitar magazine. The CD features many songs from Scott’s previous albums including his critically acclaimed 2003 studio effort, Create Your Own Reality, which was produced and co-written with Eric Bazilian (Grammy nominated songwriter, Joan Osborne, the Hooters) and features a guest appearance on guitar by Jeff Golub (Rod Stewart, Billy Squier).
Supertramp guitarist, Carl Verheyen, produced Scott’s first two jazz-fusion releases, his debut Without Words (1994), and his sophomore, Swamp Party (1997). Both releases were well received by press and fans alike and earned him an even greater respect among his peers. The release of Pulse in 2000 saw Scott’s transition to the smooth jazz genre as produced by keyboardist Tim Redfield and studio guitarist Richard Smith (Richard Elliot, Dan Siegal).
Scott has toured extensively with his own band, The Staggering Evil Geniuses, and also as a member of Eric Bazilian’s solo band. In July ’05, he opened the German leg of Lee Ritenour’s European tour. Most recently, Scott has co-produced a track for ex-Sheryl Crow guitarist Todd Wolfe, co-produced a Mel-Bay instructional drum CD with Scott Williams, co-produced and guested on the Evan Hall Band’s debut CD, Four Fried Chickens And A Coke. Scott can also be heard as a writer, player and producer on jazz vocalist Douglas Powell’s CD, Just Listen.
He is a member of Taylor Guitars’ artist program, and an endorsee of Rocktron, Seymour Duncan, B-Band, SIT, and Axsak products. Scott was also included in Tune-Up Magazine’s “Top 20 Guitar Recordings of 1997” and Sidewalk Entertainment’s “Best of â€˜97” list. Scott was voted “Best Jazz/Blues Guitarist of â€˜99” by San Francisco radio station KOFX. Scott was appeared in the October ’98 issue of Guitar World article featuring independent artists and in the Polish guitar magazine Gitara i Bas.
