Gin Blossoms — Visit Scott's website


After over two decades of recording and touring with various Tempe, Arizona bands, Scott is psyched to be rocking the drums on the road with the quintessential Tempe band - Gin Blossoms.

In addition to playing with Gin Blossoms, he has toured and recorded with Gloritone (RCA Records) and LET GO (The Militia Group), as well as worked with recording artists such as Lisa Loeb and Grammy award-winning producer, Chris Testa (The Dixie Chicks, Jimmy Eat World).
