If music flows through any bodies blood it has to be SCOTT WILSON. He’s a bass player, songwriter, singer, producer and engineer. He wears a lot of hats and for everyone he does has when he wears them he shines bright. For some who may not know him by name he has played in the band TANTRIC from 2013 to just recently parting ways to landing a new gig with the men from SAVING ABEL. His new home he loves and they cannot wait to get new music out to the fans.
Along with playing bass for some kick ass bands this guy also does work in his studio sunshine studios in Colorado. Where some fun stuff will be happening with the new SAVING ABEL record along with him working with other talented artists on how down time.
I had a chance to catch up with SCOTT WILSON to talk about the departure of TANTRIC, his new home in SAVING ABEL and other fun things along the way.
DEPARTING FROM TANTRIC HAS HAPPENED, EVEN THOUGH THE UPS N DOWNS WERE GREAT IN THAT BAND TELL ME ONE THING THAT YOU TOOK AWAY FROM HUGO AS A WRITER AND MUSICIAN THAT HELPED OR GUIDED YOU INTO GROWTH WITH YOUR MUSIC?
Hugo is absolutely an amazing musician and composer. Through the writing we did together we came up with some amazing stuff. His focus on Melody was always the opposite of mine so it made our compositions pretty complex and cool.
• BEFORE THE SAVING ABEL ADDITION DID YOU THINK ABOUT POSSIBLY DOING A SOLO THING BECAUSE YOU DO WRITE AND SING?
Yes, and let's just see what the future holds. I can definitely see that in my future.
• YOUR OFFICIALLY IN SAVING ABEL HOW IS IT GOING INTO A NEW BAND WITH NEW PERSONALOTIES AND WAS THERE ANY AWKWARD MOMENTS GETTING TO KNOW THE GUYS?
Of course, a band is like a brotherhood. I've known these guys for a long time but living together is a totally different situation. These guys are awesome and very like-minded. So, I fit in pretty easily. The only awkward moments. We're ones that I created intentionally just to be silly. Like leaving my underwear in a weird spot on the bus or hiding someone's food. They are awesome dudes and we geld immediately.
• HOW DOES THE SAVING ABEL LIVE SET DIFFER VERSES THE TANTRIC DAYS OF THE STAGE?
Of course, the two bands are very different musically. However, both bands put on a hard driving show. SAVING ABEL said he's a little bit longer so it took me a minute to adapt to being on stage sometimes up to two hours.
• YOU BROUGHT YOUR FRIEND BRIAN BONDS INTO TANTRIC, NOW THAT YOU ARE OUT WHAT IS HE DOING?
Well before Brian jumped in headfirst with the TANTRIC gig. He was a session player and singer in Nashville. He is now tracking a lot of amazing music and working with some really great Artists. And who knows someday you may see Him and I on the stage together again.
JUST A GIRL WHO LOVES MUSIC BEING CREATIVE AND WRITING, THAT IS HOW THE EAST COAST ROMPER BECAME WHAT IT IS FOR THE MODERN ROCK WORLD
