About Scott Bricklin
Thank you for coming to visit!
I've been a musician and singer/songwriter since before I was old enough to remember to remember that one day I might have trouble remembering. Recording engineer and producer/arranger came later.
I've ridden the highs, survived the lows, and tried to do my best for the rest.
The facts and figures are listed below. But the important details are in the songs. I've played many shows and many roles WITH many people FOR many people for many years. Some, but not all, are mentioned in the facts and figures.
No need to chop down a tree (or small branch maybe?) to include my personal propaganda (reviews and press, etc…) in this package. I would have only included the good ones anyway.
Thanks for checking me out. For anyone interested in more, please listen to the CD's and please visit scottbricklinmusic.com and catch a little more of the story when you can.
