Timothy Scottis an instrumental recording artist primarily known for his solo instrumental guitar compositions.
Scott was born and brought up in Hazel Grove, a suburb of Stockport, England.He attended Hazel Grove High School and Salford College of Music, but "dropped out before he got kicked out", finding that he could not cope with the written work due to his dyslexia. He later studied for a diploma at The Guitar Institute, London (now known as The Institute of Contemporary Music Performance).
Scott's recording career began in 2003 when he self-released his debut album Bald on the Inside , distributing it and performing live sets in Borders Books & Music Stores across the UK. The album peaked inside their top 200 sellers list and received generally positive reviews.
The Bald on the Inside press reviews opened the opportunity for Scott to work with BBC Radio 1 DJ Judge Jules, writing and performing on the instrumental guitar track "Puesta Del Sol" for Judge Jules' debut album Proven Worldwide.Scott played live improvised guitar over his backroom Funky House/Dirty Electro DJ set during the BBC Radio 1 weekend in Ibiza on 15 and 16 August 2005. From 2005-2008 Scott performed at clubs in Ibiza and the UK alongside Judge Jules and other artists such as Jon Fitz and Katherine Ellis.
Scott's second solo album, Guitar Mashing , was released on 26 November 2008. The album was critically well-received,with Total Guitar describing Scott's music as "mashing his guitar mastery (think Vai and Satriani) with chilled Ibiza sounds." Since the release of Guitar Mashing Scott has been concentrating on releasing singles online. The first single, "Amy Jane", was released in late 2009 to positive reviews.
At the end of July 2010, Scott took delivery of his own Jackson Soloist signature guitar described by The Manchester Evening News – "The Hazel Grove musician has finally got his hands on his one-off sparkly pink Custom Shop Jackson Guitar in his signature shade…".
